About the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair
The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair was established in the 1980s. From 2007 until 2013 it was organized by the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage in cooperation with the Frankfurter Buchmesse, and grew to be the most international fair in the Arab World. Now run by the Abu Dhabi Arabic Language Centre, ADIBF is both an important gateway to the region's publishing market and a platform for important cultural policy issues and debates. Germany has been present at ADIBF every year since 2008.
