Bookfest Malaysia 2017

BookFest @ Malaysia, incepted in 2006, continues its lifelong mission of inculcating the love of reading amongst Malaysians! Co-organised with Sin Chew Media Corporation Berhad, this fair was recognised in 2016 by the Malaysia Book of Records as the largest trilingual book exposition in the country, and is hence a must-go event for bibliophiles within and beyond Malaysia.

Malaysia’s largest book exposition hosts more than 700 booths featuring leading publishers, books and stationery distributors from countries such as China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, United Kingdom, USA, Canada, Belgium, Australia, Singapore and Malaysia. Visitors to BookFest @ Malaysia will be treated to millions of books from the latest and best collections of Chinese, English and Malay titles located at both the Chinese and English Pavilions. At the same time, this event also offers a diverse assortment of the latest stationery, audio-visual products, gadgets and IT products and many more, at the Lifestyle Pavilion. What’s more, BookFest also serves as a platform for both local and international authors to present their written works to audiences.

The annual book exposition occupies one of Malaysia’s most prestigious “state-of-the-art” Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) sites; the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). Since BookFest’s establishment in 2006, it has occupied an exhibition space of 100,000 square feet encompassing Hall 1 to Hall 5 at the Ground Floor Level. In 2011, POPULAR Malaysia, as the organiser, increased the exhibition space from 100,000 square feet to 125,000 square feet with the introduction of the Lifestyle Pavilion located at the Grand Ballroom of Level 3. The Lifestyle Pavilion meanwhile showcases a diverse genre of the latest stationery, music, gadgets and IT products in the market. Overwhelming reception from the public saw the Lifestyle Pavilion expanded yet again with an addition of another 8,000 square feet (Banquet Hall) to accommodate an even wider range of products. This year’s BookFest @ Malaysia 2017 will retain its generous event space of 133,000 square feet in total, comprising of Halls 1 to 5, and the Grand Ballroom and Banquet Hall at Level 3.

BookFest @ Malaysia will take place over a 9-day period, stretching over 2 weekends (2 Saturdays & 2 Sundays). Visitors can also look forward to many fun-filled, exciting activities such as performances, contests as well as meet-the-author sessions peppered throughout the exhibition days. These events and activities cater to both visitors from all walks of life. Put simply, there’s something of everything for everyone at BookFest @ Malaysia!

The growing number of visitors to BookFest year after year is a testament of the public’s support of this book expo. In its inaugural year, BookFest saw 320,000 visitors step into its halls, and welcomed an overwhelming crowd of 400,000 in 2007. In 2008, the annual event proved to be even more successful with 450,000 visitors. In 2009, despite the Influenza H1N1 pandemic, BookFest still recorded an astonishing 420,000 visitors; a positive sign of the unabated passion for reading among Malaysians. Then in 2010, BookFest saw a big leap in its visitorship with a record of 600,000 visitors while 2011 and 2012 went beyond the mark of 680,000 visitors.
