Enjoying a quarter-century experience, Tehran International Book Fair (TIBF) is a great cultural event in which publishers from all over the world along with a large number of domestic participants take part to exhibit their new titles in different subject areas. That makes the latest quality collection of books available to the educated and professional communities in the country. In addition to publishers and distributors, librarians with library equipments, governmental and private cultural institutes, experts on Iranian publications suitable for international communities, and cultural sections of international organizations and foreign embassies in Tehran participate in the Fair and introduce their products and the manifestations of their fields of interest.
This cultural event, scheduled in May every year, has been sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance of the Islamic Republic of Iran for the last 27years. However, in the recent years, publishers’associations and unions have played a key role in managing the national division of the Fair.
THE MOST VISITING EXHIBITION IN THE WORLD
More than 5 million visitors for the 27th Tehran Book Fair is a unique number of visitors which cannot be seen in any other exhibition, and has introduced a worldwide record in the field of exhibitions.
