The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair is an annual book fair that first took place in 1981. It provides a platform where publishers, booksellers, agents, cultural organisations and media can meet, exchange ideas and identify business opportunities.
ADIBF is the most diverse book fair in the region. Abu Dhabi is a driving force behind the professional and commercial development of the regional publishing industry, and is committed to the long-term expansion of the global book business. Inaugurated 29 years ago by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Fair has gained a global reputation as a leading literary trade and cultural event in the region.

Every year, ADBIF plays host to the most prominent Arab, regional and international publishing houses as well as organising events, with the participation of the world’s greatest publishers, which help develop the publishing sector in providing local and Arab publishers with new windows of opportunity.

Additionally, ADBIF seeks to enrich its activities with intellectual and cultural programmes including artistic performances that attract visitors and add flavour to the Fair.
