Hong Kong Book Fair App
The Hong Kong Book Fair App provides instant access to fair updates including the latest news, event schedules, exhibitors’ discount coupons, new book releases and a floor plan for the venue. This year, the App presents a new feature that instantly displays information on highlighted events when you open the App. It helps you get the most out of the Book Fair’s exciting line-up of events! Download the App through App Store or Google Play store now!

You can browse the “Discount Coupon” section of the Book Fair website and App to receive discount coupons offered by all exhibitors. Through a system enhancement this year, related exhibitor coupons will also be shown on the “Book Detail” page of individual titles. You can use the Book Fair App to bookmark these coupons. When you make purchases, simply show the coupons to the exhibitors on your smartphone (printed coupons are also accepted) and you can enjoy a world of special offers for your favourite titles!

Promotion Coupons
Each visitor is entitled to one “HK$5 discount coupon” offered by a selection of exhibitors at designated locations across the fair. Coupon holders can enjoy a HK$5 discount (when spending HK$50 or more) for every purchase at booths marked with the “HK$5 discount” sign. Coupons are available while stocks last.

Special Discounted Admission Tickets and Re-entry Promotion
This year’s Book Fair offers two special entry slots, priced at just HK$10:
