More Books, more ideas…
The 10th Thessaloniki Book Fair will be held on 16 – 19 May 2013 at the Helexpo Exchibition Center staged by the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, Culture and Sports, Genenal Secretariat of Culture, Directorate of Letters, in collaboration with Helexpo, the Hellenic Federation of Publishers and Booksellers and the Municipality of Thessaloniki.
The institution of the Thessaloniki Book Fair has established a dynamic presence the last 10 years and signals the passage in the state of “maturity” by creating strong co-operations with the involved parties and by opening “windows” of extraversion in Greece as well as abroad. At least thirty foreign countries are expected to participate this year in the Thessaloniki Book Fair, upgrading its international character. At the same time the participation of the Greek publishers will be universal in accordance with the appraisal of the tripartite committee that represents the industry and actively participates into the planning and scheduling of this exhibition.
