DC Kizhakemuri always stressed on the the need for reading to be promoted among the masses in general with a special emphasis on nurturing the younger generation via an exposure to literature. To this end DC Books has actively organized and participated in Book Fairs.
DC Books is a working as a consultant & key partner with the Sharjah Book Authority and Sharjah Cultural Department for the last 8 years for conducting literature events at the Sharjah International Book Fair. Presently the Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF) is considered to be one of the largest book fairs in the world. DC Books has a key role in developing the book fair into one of world’s biggest fairs. From a regional book fair, mainly catering to the Arab population, now the book fair has turned out to be truly international.
People across the Middle East visit the book fair in huge numbers. From 200,000 visitors in 2008 for Sharjah International Book Fair, the 2015 figures show 1.5 million visitors. Also, with 112 participant exhibitors from India, the nation represented the maximum participants at SIBF followed by Great Britain with over 100 participants. DC Books has also been the first recipient from India for the International Publisher of the Year Award at the Sharjah International Book Fair.
Book fairs are also conducted annually in all districts in Kerala. These fairs showcase a wide array of books across all genres and special discounts are offered to promote reading among the public. Each year book fairs are also conducted in schools and organizations both in the Gulf region as well as in Kerala in order to introduce and inculcate reading among children. Many events and activities are planned throughout the Book Fairs as an impetus for children and students alike to attend in numbers.
