10 Reasons Why Should You Visit Sharjah International Book Fair 2018



One of the must-do things before the year 2018 ends is, visiting the Sharjah International Book Fair 2018 which begins on 31st of October, 2018 to end on 10th of November,2018 at the Expo Centre Sharjah. This year’s book exhibition beholds heaps of wonderful surprises with learning-oriented activities for the kids and adults.


The 37th edition of Sharjah International Book Fair is back with a bang, promises to provide the visitors with some once in a lifetime experiences. The fair was established in 1982, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, in order to instill the love of literature and reading among the people of the region.





“Those of us who enjoy reading in the emirate of Sharjah are very keen to create a reading community and promote the benefits of reading among children. For that reason, we provide the best, most suitable books for all the family. We believe that books must be available to all and from this concept, we turn book fairs into an oasis of knowledge and enlightenment.”


Ahmed Al Ameri, chairman of SBA, said: “The fair is much more than an annual 11-day fair. It is now an essential component of the world’s collective sociocultural memory. The SIBF is a unique experience for everyone who visits or is part of the fair – there are those who buy their first book; some others visit to enhance cultural relations; some come searching for the author who changed their life.”

Austin Macauley Publishers would be visiting the Sharjah International Book Fair for the 2nd year on the trot after having a successful excursion of Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival (18-April-2018 to 28-April-2018) and Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (25-April-2018 to 1-May-2018) in UAE.
