The 2018 Beijing Book Fair has attracted 200,000 tourists to enjoy book-hunting pleasure in four days since its opening on May 11. The fair will last until May 21.
With the theme of “reaffirming cultural confidence and building literary Beijing”, the fair will provide a cultural feast for citizens for 11 days, aiming to create a literary atmosphere in the city of Beijing.
This year, the fair sets up about 600 booths in seven areas, including bestseller, old book, culture and arts, and outstanding book exhibition areas, interactive experience area for creative products, marketing activity area, and featured physical bookstore exhibition area, hitting a record high in the number of booths and areas in recent years.
The fair also highlights the strongest strength of exhibitors and the largest number of physical bookstores. More than 300 domestic well-known publishing enterprises like China Publishing Group Corporation and Beijing Publishing House participated to bring 400,000 outstanding genuine publications and related stationery commodities together to the fair.
In addition, based on the fair’s tradition of “serving blue-and-white collar workers and benefiting the common people”, the exhibited books are all sold at a discount at the fair.
