IIBF is an annual book exhibition organized by IKAPI. It was established in 1980 under the name of Indonesia Book Fair (IBF). To reach a bigger audience, 2014 Indonesia Book Fair became Indonesia International Book Fair (IIBF) with Saudi Arabia as its first Guest of Honor country, followed by South Korea in 2015 and Malaysia in 2016.
When books become the heart of creativity and activity and when a book fair becomes a honorary title for a wide creative industry’s exhibition, we need more than a book fair. We need a book affair! Indonesia International Book Fair (IIBF) will be held at Assembly Hall, Jakarta Convention Center from 9 to 13 September 2020.
IIBF is a hybrid book fair. It is a mix of B to B and B to C book fair, and it is enriched by some cultural and educational programme. IIBF helps participants to meet the goals and to meet potential business partners. There are more than 1,600 publishers listed as a member of IKAPI (Indonesian Publishers Association). There are approx. 40,000 new titles published yearly in which most of the titles are acquired through rights purchases from around the world. In recent years, international collaborations are also becoming more common among Indonesian publishers.
IIBF is a meeting point, a strategic and prestigious event for exhibitors to promote literature, art, culture, and all other creative content, through rights licensing and other means of cooperation.
IIBF 2020 is not just a book fair. It’s a book affair: a rendezvous for international promotions, transactions, as well as interaction among publishers, authors, readers, literary agents, librarians, actresses, educators, and other professionals of the creative industry in Indonesia.
