The third day of the 52nd Cairo International Book Fair witnessed 62,000 visitors on the fair’s third day, amid strict coronavirus precautionary measures.
The fair’s management worked greatly to relieve congestion and crowding inside the exhibit halls and at the entrance gates that were present during the previous two days, according to Head of the General Egyptian Book Organization, Haitham al-Hajj.
The 52nd edition of the Cairo International Book Fair is being held under the slogan “Reading is Life” and features 1,218 publishers from 25 countries.
This year, the exhibition is witnessing the launch of the “Your Culture, Your Book” initiative, under which certain book prices range between LE1 and LE20.
Additionally, a digital platform for the exhibition that allows attendees to book tickets, view the fair’s map, and watch live seminars and workshops have been launched this year.
The fair is set to run daily through July 15.
