The Beijing International Book Fair (BIBF), now held twenty times since its inception in 1986, continues to uphold its principle of “introducing excellent books from around the world into China and leading Chinese books to the world”. Over the past twenty years, the BIBF has been an event of the utmost importance to publishers, and has received major support and participation from domestic and overseas book and publishing industries, gradually confirming BIBF’s international brand status, and turning it into a major international publishing event incorporating copyright trade, book trade, cultural events, displays, consultation services and professional networking.

The 21th Beijing International Book Fair will be held at the China International Exhibition Center (New Venue) from August 27 to August 31, 2014. The exhibition area will cover 53,600 square meters, and the Republic of Turkey will take part as the Country of Honor. Besides expanding and improving on the General Publishing Zone, 2014 BIBF will continue to run the Digital Publishing Zone and the Children’s Book, Cartoons & Animation Zone, Periodical Zone, Publishing on Demand Zone, the Rights Center and the Library Acquisition Zone. As the organizer of the BIBF, CNPIEC will continue to adhere to international concepts and professional standards, and to provide quick and efficient information management and fair services to Chinese and overseas publishing cooperation and communication, with the goal of raising the 21th BIBF to new heights of quality.
