Book fairs play an essential role in the publishing industry and in particular in the Arab world, where fairs are geared towards the public and are where most Arab publishers sell their greatest number of books each year. A number of book fairs in the Southwest Asian and North African (SWANA) region can be interesting for European publishers to get a better sense of what is being published, and to meet with publishers and authors.
For more information about book fairs in the SWANA region, visit the page Cultural and literature sites.
