Overview

First held in 1990, the Hong Kong Book Fair has grown to be one of the region's most celebrated literary events. Millions of visitors stream through the exhibition halls each year around mid-April to peruse and purchase books as well as attend the many literary panels, forums and workshops. The Hong Kong Trade Development Council invites acclaimed authors and publishers from all over the world, and many of the panels are held in English. Activities held in other languages provide simultaneous English and Cantonese translation. The open forum is a fan favorite for the discussions it provokes.
