Exhibitors Promise To Return To Book Fair

Exhibitors pronounced the Cape Town Book Fair a great success on the closing day of the fair yesterday. Sales were better than expected, they had made valuable contacts in Africa and internationally and they would return next year, many of the publishers and authors said.

33 488 people visited the fair and there were 273 exhibitors. More than 200 journalists attended.

The Cape Town Book Fair thanks all exhibitors, trade visitors, authors and everyone who was part of this great experience, for participating in the 5th edition of the Cape Town Book Fair.

This year's Cape Town Book Fair had a lot of "firsts" on offer, one of them being the Trade Day that was dedicated to exhibitors and trade visitors exclusively. The Pickn Pay Chef's Theatre presented great chefs on the public days of the Fair.
