Following an initial postponement from March to April, the Bologna Children’s Book Fair has been officially cancelled for this year.
Read the announcement posted on the website here:
To all our dear Exhibitors, Visitors, Partners and Friends,
It is with great sadness that we announce our decision to cancel the 57th Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
Unfortunately, the spread of the Coronavirus epidemic both in Italy and internationally has dashed our hopes of holding the fair even on the recently announced rescheduled dates of 4-7 May. We have therefore taken the difficult decision to wait no further and act now to enable you all to rethink your plans.
Bologna will nonetheless be present. We are working to recreate online the atmosphere and the business and networking opportunities that are so much part of our book fair. Details will be announced soon, so stay tuned!
We want to thank you all for the heart-warming support you have shown us over these difficult weeks in a show of friendship that makes us at BCBF, and the whole city of Bologna, proud.
We look forward to meeting you online in a few weeks – and in Bologna from 12 to 15 April 2021.
Very best regards,
The BCBF Team
