The Sharjah International Book Fair is a professional book fair attended by librarians, publishers, booksellers, distributors, educators, and agents; and is an opportunity to promote your book for discoverability. No direct sales are initiated at this event, instead representatives attend to collect information on books and other media they are interested in purchasing. These professionals then order in bulk through distributors like Ingram Spark to maximize their discounts; and distributors order directly from publishers. We take photos of all books on display, which will be provided to you at the beginning of the expo. Due to the nature of the fair, we can report if any rights transactions are initiated, but we cannot provide feedback on how an individual book is received in the display. We will, however, give a general report on the overall display activity and the show in general.
