Doha International Book Fair 2020
The Ministry of Culture and Sports has announced the date of the 30th Doha International Book Fair, scheduled to be held from 9 to 18 January 2020.
To honour the significance of this year’s edition, it will mark the 30th anniversary of this remarkable cultural event that constitutes the largest international book fair in the region, holding a prestigious reputation. The Doha International Book Fair is known for attracting a large participation from Arab and foreign countries, which has been increasing since its first edition held in 1972.
The new date for the Doha International Book Fair will coincide with the launch of the Qatar-France Year of Culture 2020, which will enable a momentous French presence during the event, along with a diversified cultural mosaic.
Similar to the previous edition, the book fair activities will continue over 10 days in order to give the visitors more time to savour a distinct cultural experience, and allow publishers to display their diverse publications, especially the latest ones.
The Ministry of Culture and Sports announced that the next edition of the Doha International Book Fair will be different, due to the event’s distinguished nature that sets it apart from other cultural events in light of the wide participation of Arab and foreign publishing houses, and the organization of various workshops and seminars enriching the ongoing cultural movement.
