Manila International Book Fair reimagined in Nov 24-30

 

The Manila International Book Fair (MIBF), the biggest and longest-running book and publishing fair in the Philippines, will be making a big shift as it becomes an online event for this year.

The current situation in the Philippines and other parts of the world has put a halt on all large-scale physical events, but we still want to continue bringing the MIBF experience to all bookworms in the country, as well as everyone from across the world, at the comfort of the homes.

This is why MIBF was reimagined as the Manila International Online Book Fair, happening this November 24 to 30.

 

The MIBF Online will be an online book and publishing fair with a dedicated platform that will offer various interactive content, such as video streaming, discussion rooms, virtual exhibition and a whole lot more. We also plan to hold exclusive panel discussions, Q&As and seminars through virtual conference platforms that will definitely be must-attended events.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has thrown a major curveball at event organizers, not just in the Philippines but all around the world. We are disappointed that we cannot hold the Manila International Book Fair on its 41st year as usual, but we are up to the challenge of innovating MIBF and all other future events for the new normal,” said Primetrade Asia, Inc. President Irene Lloren.
