Regarding Greece’s participation in the Beijing Intl Book Fair
The 13th Thessaloniki Book Fair, which took place at Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre, from 12th to 15th May, proved to be – despite certain difficulties – one of the most successful Fairs in recent years, as it was admitted by all the involved parties, attracting more than 54,000 visitors.
The multicultural spirit which governs the international character of the TIBF is supported in this year’s Fair by the participation of 24 foreign writers and a Translation festival which poses and treats the issues of language and communicating ideas through translators.
