Jerusalem International Book Forum (Israel)
May 15 - May 18
The JIBF is a project of the Municipality of Jerusalem, produced by the Ariel Municipal Company.
Since its inception in 1963, the JIBF (previously – the Jerusalem International Book Fair; currently – the Jerusalem International Book Forum) has brought together members of the international publishing community for a week of professional and intellectual as well as informal gatherings. Like the book fair, which preceded it, the Forum connects people of different origins, backgrounds and roles; it embraces cultural diversity and encourages open dialogue. The Forum continues this tradition, deepening and expanding the professional relationships formed in the friendly, open atmosphere that has become the signature characteristic of the JIBF.
The Forum offers a vibrant, relevant, and engaging platform for publishing professionals. It serves as both a workshop and social gathering, recognizing that the bonds and connections between people are among our most valuable resources. It is a meeting ground for discussing challenges and sharing insights and experience. At the heart of the Forum is a program of events including panels, discussion groups, interviews, presentations and informal gatherings, where publishing professionals can engage in the free exchange of ideas with their colleagues.
