Jumbo Editorial Team

The Cape Town Book Fair, which was scheduled to be staged in the middle of 2011, will now be held in a new and remodeled format in June 2012, along with the IPA Publishers Congress.

The organizers have announced that the postponed event will now be held in Cape Town from June 12 to 14, 2012. The reason for this new move was that publishers in South Africa had voiced their support for a biennale Fair, starting next year.

The organizers have thanked all exhibitors and interested parties for their support expressing the hope that they would be able to accommodate their needs and wishes again in 2012. A planning committee will start working and planning a revamped Cape Town Book Fair for 2012 very soon and will be announcing new details for the fair as soon as they become available.

Each year the Cape Town Book Fair had expanded and with the visitor capacity having reached right around 45,000. The fair has been commended for its ability to encompass the majority of great authors and publishers making splashes in the book scene when the event takes place.

The Cape Town Book Fair combines an intelligent atmosphere with over two hundred different events. Everyone is subject to enjoy an event perfect for them at the fair, which holds a wide array of public seminars, author events, and author readings. In addition there are high-profile writers and social commentators present.

The Cape Town Book Fair is held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, located on Cape Town's northern foreshore.

If you are traveling to the Cape Town Book Fair as a family don't worry, there are Children's Zone Programmes set up for the kids so that they are content all day while the adults may roam around however they please.
