33rd Manila International Book Fair

MIBF has become a yearly tradition for Filipinos. Last year’s event was attended by more than eighty five thousand people visiting over three hundred local and foreign exhibitors showcasing thousands of books.

MIBF becomes a more challenging exhibit to pull off every year, especially as we come to the advent of the digital age and new ways of reading. But for as long as the written word thrives in any medium, MIBF will continue its legacy of promoting the love for reading.

The event will be staged at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City from September 12 to 16, 2012 from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm

Organized by:
PRIMETRADE ASIA, INC.

Partner Organizations:
Book Development Association of the Philippines (BDAP)
Asian Catholic Communicators, Inc. (ACCI)
Overseas Publishers’ Representatives Association of the Philippines (OPRAP)
Philippine Booksellers Association, Inc. (PBAI)
