Heads up, bookworms! Manila International Book Fair returns this September


Mark your calendars, bookworms!

The Manila International Book Fair returns once again to SMX Convention Center in Pasay this September 14 to 17, 2023.

Dubbed the “largest and longest-running running book fair in the Philippines,” this year’s event will feature a vast array of books for shoppers to choose from.

In 2022, MIBF was a hybrid affair, with an online site available for those who weren’t able to go to the physical event. That year also marked the return of the fair after being halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

MIBF saw over 200 exhibitors, including local and foreign publishers, book printers, arts and craft suppliers, libraries, and more. It also featured conferences, book signings, writing trainings, and book launches.

There aren’t a lot of details yet about MIBF 2023, except for its dates, but you can follow their Facebook and Instagram pages for updates.

The Manila International Book Fair has been running for over 43 years, with its 2019 leg garnering over 160,000 visitors.
