The 31st HKTDC Hong Kong Book Fair, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), will be held from 15 to 21 July (Wednesday to Tuesday) at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). More than 730 exhibitors are expected to gather at the fair and the Hong Kong Sports and Leisure Expo, presenting a wide selection of books and activities over the week. During the fair and the citywide Cultural July campaign, over 600 online and offline cultural events, catering to different interests and age groups, will be organised, including thematic exhibitions at the Art Gallery at the HKCEC, seminars hosted by acclaimed writers and celebrity storytelling sessions. Visitors can experience the joy of reading and interacting with authors as well as trying out the hottest new sports and leisure activities, helping to build both spiritual and physical strength.
Mr Chau added that the well-being and safety of exhibitors and visitors will be the top concern at the Book Fair. Various measures will be put in place to protect people against the pandemic, including requiring everyone entering and staying in the fairground to wear a mask, setting up temperature-screening stations, providing hand sanitiser at multiple locations around the venue, and stepping up the cleaning and disinfection of exhibitors’ booths and the venue itself. To spread the flow of visitors and encourage people to visit the fair at non-peak hours, in addition to offering morning admission tickets the HKTDC will introduce night admission tickets as well as the special re-entry promotion. Please see below for more details. Details of on-site preventative measures can be found at: www.hkbookfair.hktdc.com/en/Visitor/Health-Tips.html.
