Here's your sign to finally start saving up, bibliophiles! The annual Manila International Book Fair has announced the dates of its four-day affair this year.

In a Facebook post on Thursday, Feb. 2, the country’s largest and longest-running book revealed that its in-person event will run from September 14 to 17 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City. 

The organizers said more details about the event, including the time, participating exhibitors and publishers, schedule of activities, as well as ticket prices, will be announced in the coming days.

Last year, MIBF held a hybrid event from Sept. 15 to 18 at the MIBF Online Marketplace and SMX Convention Center. The on-site book fair was open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. throughout the duration of the event.

Admission was free, with MIBF requiring visitors to register on the MIBF's EventPlus page prior to their visit.

Since the pandemic, this is the second time the fair will be held in person. It had its first-ever online fair in 2021 due to strict pandemic restrictions in the country. 

Meanwhile, Mindanao-based book lovers can also enjoy some book hunting at the Mindanao Book Fair 2023 that is set to take place on March 17 to 19 at the activity center of Abreeza Mall in Davao City.
