Jeddah International Book Fair’s tale of success
More than 50,000 visitors a day, publishers from 40 countries and 180,000 titles on offer — the numbers tell the remarkable success story for the 4th Jeddah International Book Fair.
Jordan, Sudan and Yemen were among dozens of Arab and Islamic countries taking part in the 10-day fair, which ends on Saturday.
Under the theme “Tolerance and Peace,” the event highlighted heritage and tradition, and featured more than 60 workshops in fine arts, photography and calligraphy, as well as seminars, lectures, and plays focusing on social and cultural topics.
