About the trade fair

27 Years of the Fair. A Literary Phenomenon and 3 Generations of Readers.

International Book Fair in Krakow® - a cyclical event dedicated to the publishing and bookselling industry, organized since 1997 in Krakow by Targi w Krakowie Ltd.
The event, as part of a program to promote reading, is open to the general public. Exhibitors include Polish and foreign publishing houses, book warehouses, bookstores, cultural institutions, associations related to the book market in Poland, digital media distributors, printing companies, and paper manufacturers.

The International Book Fair in Krakow® is a major characteristic of the city. They have become an area for the promotion of good books, a place for meetings, exchange of ideas, and discussions. In 2013 Krakow was honored with the prestigious title of UNESCO City of Literature - as one of seven cities in the world and the second non-English-speaking city. That's why Krakow is an ideal place to host an international publishing and reading event. The International Book Fair in Krakow® establishes the image of Krakow and Malopolska as a region that for centuries has set the trends of Polish culture, set the pace of change, influenced reading tastes, and created literary fashions.
