The Manila International Book Fair (MIBF), on its 39th year, has once again provided the book lovers with exciting great deals! With over 100 exhibitors – local indie publishers to big bookstore chains – the attendees surely were overwhelmed with what the event has in store! There were workshops, competitions, book launches, book signings and of course- BOOK SALE!
The book fair has grown from three halls of SM Megamall Megatrade Hall to two floors of SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia. Two floors were opened this year! The Exhibit Halls 1 to 4 and Function Rooms 1 to 2 were utilized to make sure all bookworms get the full benefit.
MIBF is undeniably among the biggest, most sought after and longest running fairs in the country with a total of 150,000+ visitors in its five-day run. The book fair visitors are regular visitors who have been attending for an average of five years and belong to the highly educated sector of the population. It has become a gathering of sorts for bookworms of all ages and walks of life to celebrate the joys of reading and the knowledge each book brings about. It has also been providing a venue for the exchange of ideas amongst players in the publishing and academic industry.
The first time I got to visit this eye-popping exhibit was in 2017 with my year old Ysha. We scored awesome books for as low as P25! Can you imagine that?!
Having been able to get great deals from OMF Literature from last year, it was our favorite booth this year!
OMF Literature is a major publisher/distributor of Christian books in the Philippines specializing in books of inspiration, biblical instruction, and practical living. It’s a fully Filipino-run company with a growing list of Christian titles. They are the maker of Hiyas, the home to best-selling and award-winning children’s titles.
They even got Book Bundles that are sure hit for kids and adults!
