Hong Kong Book Fair 2023

Hello everyone!

The HKTDC Hong Kong Book Fair 2023, an annual major event in Hong Kong, will be held from 19 July (Wednesday) to 25 July (Tuesday) at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. You are warmly invited to join this gala event. HKU Press' booth is located at the University Square, number 1D-B26.

This year, we made several major changes to the overall design - adding iconic elements of the Grade 2-listed Run Run Shaw Heritage House where our HKUP Bookshop and office are located, introducing more author activities, simplifying the discount structure, and making your experience at our booth more relaxing. Do stop by and let us know if you enjoy the difference!

HKUP Author Events
Check out our author activities below and mark the dates. We arranged one talk, two Meet-and-Greets, and three photo-taking sessions for our authors from HKU, HKUST, CityU, PolyU, and Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

Professor John Wong - Talk on Hong Kong's aviation development and history. Thank you very much for your interest in this event, the registration quota for the talk is now FULL. We will be pampering every event participant with TWO HK$5 voucher-bookmarks upon their arrival. We will punch a hole to the used voucher, turning it into a bookmark for you to keep. We hope you like them!
