As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, this year’s 43rd International Book Fair, Interliber 2021, will be held from November the 9th to 14th at the Zagreb Fair, as was announced on Wednesday by the president of the Association of Publishers and Bookstores (ZNK), Slavko Kozina.
The three pavilions will be filled by about 230 exhibitors from 14 countries for Interliber 2021, to which many book worms are looking forward. Kozina pointed out that two years without the fair would have set the entire book and publishing industry backwards, and he assessed that the current situation is significantly better than it was four years ago, when there was a big problem with the collapse of the Croatian publishing and bookstore network.
He also mentioned that the number of points where you can buy books has been reduced at Interliber 2021, as a small number of publishers gave up on the idea of showing up physically.
Assistant Director of the Zagreb Fair, Zoran Usuric, emphasised that admission to the fair for Interliber 2021 will be free of charge and possible only upon presentation of a valid Covid certificate proving the holder’s vaccination status, recovery, or a valid negative PCR test result (no older than 72 hours), or a negative rapid antigen test result (no older than 48 hours).
Entrance to Interliber 2021 at the Zagreb Fair will be possible at the box office at the South Entrance with the presentation of the aforementioned Covid certificate, and visitors will receive a disposable bracelet and a ticket with which they’ll pass through mechanical barriers and enter the space itself.
The wearing of masks and maintaining social distancing will be mandatory on the premises for the duration of the fair.
