17 June 2021 – The long-awaited HKTDC Hong Kong Book Fair, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), will be held from 14 to 20 July at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), providing a feast of books for Hong Kong’s literature lovers along with a broad range of activities and speakers.


This year’s Book Fair will present a diverse selection of books for sale, with a number of renowned local authors invited to engage with booklovers at a series of seminars. At the same time, the HKTDC Hong Kong Sports and Leisure Expo will showcase products and services covering a wide range of sports and leisure activities, with visitors able to try out many of the newly emerging sporting experiences at first hand. Another treat is in store for the Hong Kong public with the debut of the World of Snacks, featuring an amazing selection of candies, nostalgic treats, party snacks and healthy snacks from around the world. With three events in one, visitors can appreciate the triple joy of “Reading, Experiencing and Tasting” in a single visit.
