Previous Book Fair - Egypt Today
CAIRO – 9 September 2018: “No For Chaos”, the logo Submitted by the Egyptian General Book Authority, the entity responsible for organizing the Cairo International Book Fair 2019, is expected to be launched on Jan. 23, 2019, in celebration of the Golden Jubilee.
The management of the book fair aims to fulfill the fair’s logo through segmenting the fair’s program, into several levels, in order to come out with something that suits the name of Egypt and its solid reputation in the world of book fairs globally.
Moreover, Director of Exhibitions Department at the Egyptian General Book Organization and Manager of the Cairo International Book Fair in its new edition, Islam Bayoumi, asked Egyptian citizens and reading enthusiasts to forget the system that was previously used in running the fair.
Bayoumi further stated that the state of “chaos” and randomness that prevailed in the old book fairs held in the Exhibition Grounds in Nasr City, will be diminished soon by the new management that promised to improve the conditions for the attendees.
The manager of the Cairo International Book Fair further claimed that the new Exhibition Grounds were completed using universal standards, making sure the space is designed and segmented in the appropriate way.
Furthermore, Bayoumi stated that the new grounds will be segmented equally, with a pathway that constrains individuals to walk in a certain direction, making sure they pass through all the sections of the book fair until the exit door.
