38th Manila International Book Fair: Sept 2017

The country’s biggest book event is back for its 2017 edition! The Manila International Book Fair happens on September 13-17, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.

Now on its 38th year, the MIBF continues to be the country’s biggest and longest-running book fair. It showcases the largest and most varied collection of literature for leisure and academic reading. Everything you need from fiction bestsellers, to textbooks, to graphic novels, and even educational materials are all under one roof.  Moreover, the MIBF is also the go-to venue for this year’s most awaited book launches and signings, dialogues with readers, contests, and other literary events.

Running for almost four decades now, it has evolved from an event for the publishing industry and the academe to one of the most-awaited exhibitions for all sorts of readers. The MIBF has become a gathering of sorts for bookworms of all ages and walks of life to celebrate the joys of reading and the knowledge each book brings about. It has also been providing a venue for the exchange of ideas amongst players in the publishing and academic industry.

Tickets are available for P20.00 at the SMX Convention Center (at the lobby, near the entrance to the halls).
