Theme of the year

Reading the World ・ People, Places, Passions

Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the 28th edition of the Hong Kong Book Fair will be held from 19 to 25 July at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Under the theme of "Reading the World ・ People, Places, Passions", this year's event attracts about 670 exhibitors from 37 countries and regions and more than 320 cultural activities will be held during the fair period, with the aim to encourage readers to travel around the world and broaden their horizons.

Theme of the Year — Travel

This year’s Book Fair adopts "Travel" as the Theme of the Year. Both travelling and reading can broaden our horizons. Yet the world is too enormous that it is difficult for us to travel to every country. Reading different travel works gives us the opportunity to come into contact with the polar region and dangerous mountains and walk through continents at war. Whether you and I have travelled to the countries or have not set foot in the continents, we can expand our visions through the words and personal experiences of these travel writers.
