Exhibitors’ Events and Connecting the City

CCBF is not only a gathering of practitioners of children's book publishing and children's content related industries, but also an annual celebration of the power and joy of reading for children. A variety of public events will be held.

CCBF is not only a meeting point for professionals of the children's publishing and education industries, it is also an annual celebration of the power and joy of reading. During the fair, our exhibitors, as well as numerous local bookstores, libraries, schools and other educational institutions organise a wide variety of cultural activities for readers to connect with books and interact with their favourite authors.

Connect the City turns Shanghai in a children’s book feast for children’s book enthusiasts of all ages.

During CCBF 2019, a total of 309 book releases, promotions and signing activities took place inside and outside of the fair.
