OUR NEW WEBSITE IS COMING SOON!
China Shanghai International Children’s Book Fair (CCBF) is the only book fair fully dedicated to books and other content for children in the Asia Pacific.
The first CCBF was held in 2013. After five successful editions, CCBF has quickly become an important event for the global publishing industry. The fair provides a leading copyright exchange hub for children’s books. It plays an important role in promoting Chinese children’s literature internationally and reading culture among young children.
CCBF has successfully brought together nearly 300 exhibitors and participants from many professional backgrounds. Over 30,000 people participated in the three day event last year. Participants include illustrators, designers, publishing agencies, authors, literary agents, translators, content developers, packers, printers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, education and training institutions, cultural institutions, librarians, teachers and children’s book lovers.
Other than the exhibition itself, the fair offers a wide range of activities. Some of the notable activities are the Golden Pinwheel Young Illustrators Competition and Exhibition, the Chen Bochui International Children’s Literature Award, the Author’s Festival, the Shanghai Visiting International Publishers Programme (SHVIP), other professional seminars and events to promote reading.
In 2018, CCBF is opening a magnificent new chapter by collaborating with Bologna Children’s Book Fair (BCBF). Organized by BolognaFiere, the BCBF is the largest children’s literature fair in the world and has a history of over 50 years.
