Abu Dhabi International Book Fair
Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF) provides a platform where publishers, booksellers, agents, cultural organisations and journalists can meet, exchange ideas and identify business opportunities in the publishing industry. The event also highlights the UAE’s rich heritage, showcasing its authenticity and modernity, as well as its cultural and literary output.
Inaugurated three decades ago, ADIBF has gained international status as a leading literary trade and cultural event by bringing together important Arab and international publishing houses. Key components include Guest of Honour, which focuses on a different country every year, and Personality of the Year, which honours a distinguished author.
