On the 9th CCBF at the West Bund Art Centre from 2 to 4 December 2022

Dear exhibitors, media partners, those working in the children's book industry, readers, and fans of children’s literature:

Thank you for your continuous attention and support for the China Shanghai International Children's Book Fair (CCBF). In spite of our best efforts to have the CCBF open as originally scheduled, however, to better coordinate with epidemic control measures in Shanghai, the reserved venue, the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Centre is still unavailable. After much deliberation, our Organising Committee has decided to re-schedule the 9th session of the Fair to the West Bund Art Centre on 2-4 December 2022.

West Bund Art Centre is located in the core of the "West Bund Cultural Corridor" in the Waterfront Area of Xuhui District, Shanghai. It forms a connected art ecosystem with more than 20 art spaces, such as Long Museum, Yuz Museum, Tank Shanghai and West Bund Museum. The open and thick artistic ambience and human-centered atmosphere are what empower the CCBF to imagine for the future. This is a place where writers of children’s books, book producers, fans of books, and scholars from all over the world will assemble. Here, they can brainstorm and think up more excellent and spectacular content for children's books. With a wider audience at the West Bund of Shanghai, this fair aims to ultimately influence thousands of children.

We are sorry for any inconvenience that this new development may have caused you. The organising team will do all it can to address subsequent issues arising from the recent development to provide quality service and to ensure the interests and meet the needs of our exhibitors and visitors. This will lay a more solid foundation for building the brand and influence of CCBF, a grand cultural and artistic event in Shanghai.

Please keep in touch with our team about any matters concerning the postponed exhibition, and follow the latest news via the CCBF official website (www.ccbookfair.com) and social media accounts (#ccbookfair).

We are looking forward to reuniting with you for the common growth of Shanghai. Together, we can answer the call to bring the cultural and artistic spirit of children's books to life.
