The first China Shanghai International Children’s Book Fair (CCBF) was held in 2013 under the guidance of State Administration of Press and Publication, co-organised by Shanghai Press & Publication Administration, China Education Publishing & Media Group Ltd., and China Universal Press & Publication Co., Ltd. After five successful editions, CCBF has quickly become an important event for the global publishing industry. It is the only book fair fully dedicated to books and other content for children aged from 0 to 16 in Asia Pacific.
During the six years of development, CCBF has closely embraced the theme of ‘embrace the Future’. The fair provides a leading copyright exchange hub for children’s books from all over the world, carrying out the concept of the exhibition professionally and excellently. The fair plays an important role in promoting Chinese children’s literature internationally and reading culture among young children.
CCBF 2019 will take place from 15th to 17th November at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Centre with a bigger exhibition hall on the ground floor.
