Book Fair & International Congress
German Stories in Abu Dhabi
With 400 square metres of stand space, 34 publishing houses and 10 authors, Germany will be the Guest of Honour at the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair from 23 to 29 May 2022. The cultural programme entitled "GERMAN STORIES" will focus on the themes of Inspiration, Soccer, Translation and (Un)certainties. In the "Futurelab", children and young people are invited to take part in creative workshops; forward-looking trends in the book industry and other industries are also discussed under this motto. The extensive specialist programme at the German stand takes up topics relevant to the Arab market in order to promote the exchange of German or German-language publishers with potential business partners in the Arab world.
This is also the aim of the International Congress of Arabic Publishing and Creative Industries organised by ADIBF, which will enable discussions between publishers, writers and content creators, thought leaders and entrepreneurs on the day before the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair, on 22 May 2022. The congress will feature the latest trends in publishing, with a strong focus on adapting books for other formats.
