Western and Eastern Writers Are Coming
Though book fairs are commonly popular in the United States and the West, the same events are also active in Asia. It is an opportunity for self-published authors in the U.S. and the Western world to see the growth of the community of book lovers in the East. Most of all, they can now have the chance to experience Oriental culture, way of life, and thinking through the Hong Kong Book Fair 2023.
From around 200,000 attendees at the first installments, the fairgoers at HKBF continue to grow to almost a million participants yearly. Reaching at least a portion of this big crowd gives you an advantage as an indie author. It’s one of the advantages of attending international book fairs.

Hundreds of Exhibitors Are Displaying
Started in 1990, the Hong Kong Book Fair (HKBF) is organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). As an international marketing organization, HKTDC is always on the lookout for a broader market for Hong Kong businesses. As such, they made HKBF accessible to various media publishing instead of just focusing on books. ReadersMagnet, a finalist of the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics 2023 in San Diego, is honored to be one of the exhibitors.
In the span of more than three decades, the exhibitors at HKBF have grown into more than 500 entities. From publishing agencies to sports and leisure businesses, fairgoers will be expecting book displays, book sales, printing materials, compact discs, stationery, and more. As an author, you can also sell your book at the Hong Kong Book Fair.

Exciting Book Activities Are Waving
As mentioned above, the Hong Kong Book Fair 2023, like its predecessors, doesn’t only focus on selling and exhibiting books. True to their vision to boost the economic status of the region, HKTDC allowed other activities facilitated by the World of Snacks and Hong Kong Sports and Leisure Expo. Hence, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre will become a world of fun for both children and adults in a week.
Aside from buying new books with various genres, fairgoers may also enjoy buying tools, educational supplies, collectibles, snacks, and goodies. They can also play exciting games, such as fencing demonstrations, e-racing competitions, and even a free golf simulator.
