The NDWBF provides exhibitors with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to do business with the burgeoning book sector. It’s also a great place to promote titles, make co-publication deals, and do business.

Aside from the numerous literary and publishing seminars and programmes held during the Fair, it also serves as a portal to the South Asian publishing and intellectual community.

The Fair attracts major publishing houses from throughout the world. In 2021, the Fair was organised virtually, with over 2.8 million hits, visitors from 70 countries, 150 Indian exhibitors, and approximately 15 foreign exhibitors. 

The Delhi Book Fair is the country’s largest fair, both in terms of size and economic value. It makes a significant contribution to the growth of surrounding markets. Every year, there are over 12000 publishers and 90,000 titles in over 18 languages.

This Delhi book expo is attended by national and international publishers, distributors, librarians, researchers, academicians, teachers and students, writers, and book lovers. Thousands of books are sold throughout the course of the fair’s nine days, and overseas delegations and teams attend.

New titles as well as old favourites are available here. The Delhi Book Fair also tries to divert the attention of the younger generation away from the internet and toward reading books. The Delhi Book Fair attracts over 200 renowned publishers and retailers from all over the world. There is also a significant level of foreign activity, including publishers and distributors from the United States, China, Iran, Pakistan, and Mauritius.

From some thorough research, we also found out that this year’s WBF will have a special section dedicated to promoting “Published Child Authors.”

Surprisingly, and indicating a very thoughtful approach, the National Book Trust will accommodate a corner solely for Published Child Authors, where the child authors will be given the right platform to share their inspiration and source of interest, discuss ideas, and have a one-on-one interaction with the authors they admire.

This will be an exciting opportunity for the young authors to truly understand how literature works.

Embassies, international mentors, and cultural centres are also encouraged to secure space in the Events Corner for Literary Programmes & Workshops, Book Launches, and Panel Discussions.

This will apply to both youngsters and adults. The NBT’s programme to promote Published Child Authors will be a brand-new offering at the New Delhi World Book Fair in 2023.
