Malaysia have emerged as one of the strongest economies of Asia and its capital Kuala Lumpur remains one of the most popular destinations for the tourists from all over the world.

The Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair (KLIBF) continues to be one of the most sought after events for the residents of the bustling city as well as many of those who are attracted there by the presence of the leading international publishers.

The National Book Council of Malaysia and the Malaysian Book Industry Council join hands to organise the KLIBF and they did it successfully for the 30th time recently. The KLIBF 2011 was held with great fanfare at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur from April 22 to May 1.

Due to an overwhelming response that they received from their international visitors and exhibitors during the KLIBF 2010, the organizers were prompted to hold an even bigger trade exhibition in 2011. The event lasted no less than 10 days at the Tun Razak Hall 2 of the Putra World Trade Centre.

As in previous years, the KLIBF 2011 again featured a wide range of genres from local and international publications. The international overseas companies participated enthusiastically to display their latest and best titles in KLIBF 2011 besides for trading of copyright and book licensing.

The KLIBF has been acknowledged one of the major events in the global publishing calendar, providing a networking opportunity to meet with the local and international publishing community.

Over one million visitors have reportedly been in attendance at the KLIBF every year. It is branded as the perfect place for book lovers to get the latest books and promotions from publishers around the region. Book launches, seminars, conventions, and lots of other activities are in place to suit all levels of the reading community.
