Yeon Agency attending The Seoul International Book Fair (SIBF) 2022 Oct 06 2022News
Back in June, Yeon Agency had the pleasure of attending The Seoul International Book Fair (SIBF) 2022, also known as the largest book and publishing trade show in Korea.
The guest country of honour for the five day fair was Colombia, which was the first time for a Latin-American nation. As Colombia and Korea celebrate their 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties this year, Korea also participated as the guest of honour at the Bogota International Book Fair, early last month.
Many publishers in Korea, from the big publishers to the self publishers, opened their booths to showcase their books.
Unfortunately, due to travel restrictions, many overseas publishers were unable to attend the fair in person. They did however, authorise their country’s embassies to organise and showcase their booklets.
