Nigeria: P'harcourt Invites Exhibitors for Book Festival

Management of Port Harcourt Book Festival (PHBF) has invited exhibitors to this year's edition of the literary feast, which comes up from October 20 through October 25 in Port Harcourt.

The festival, which is expected to be the biggest, is the first of its kind since Port Harcourt assumes the position of the UNESCO World Book Capital for 2014.

Stakeholders expected for registration for the exhibition include publishers, authors, exhibitors, speakers, book associations, book distributors, book stores, electronic book traders, libraries, literary agents, printers, repro agents, bibliophiles and the general public.

As packaged, some of the rare opportunities would include exposure to high profile delegates and speakers; a premier platform to network with publishers and interact with the book-loving public; insight into the publishing world and a unique sales opportunity based on a steady stream of visitors.

Other events are Writers workshops; Childrens' workshops; Book launches & Signings; Author interviews; Seminars and Panel discussions.

Organisers stated in a communiqué that exhibitors are encouraged to increase visibility and attract more visitors through competitions and other exciting activities from their stands. The PHBF will also be running competitions affording exhibitors additional opportunities to sponsor prizes.

All applications are expected to have been confirmed (by payment) on or before September 30, 2014.
