Exhibition’s Theme


Doha of Minds and Hearts


Under the theme “Doha of Minds and Hearts”, the 29th edition of the Doha International Book Fair will be held from November 29 to December 8, 2018.

The Fair reflects the vision of the Ministry of Culture and Sports (towards a conscious society with a pure conscience and a robust body). It, at the same time, enhances human values towards knowledge and development of conscience.

As culture knows no boundaries and is not limited to a specific geographic space, Russia will be the Guest of Honor at the Doha International Book Fair in the framework of the Qatar – Russia 2018 Year of Culture.

The Fair also reflects the importance of cultural exchange in the development of societies, through the participation and exchange of cultural experiences to serve sustainable cultural development.

There is no doubt that the link between adherence to cultural heritage and openness to the others, which Doha is working to achieve, is reflected in this international Fair. The Fair brings together different types of publishers from all over the world in order to build societies, conscience, which would promote the renaissance of societies, to face all challenges.

The 29th edition of the Doha International Book Fair emphasizes that through our minds and hearts that we can benefit and address the issues taking guidance from books.

And through these elements, it becomes clear that the Doha International Book Fair is not just a market for book sales and trading, it is a powerful platform of promoting intercultural exchange, and dedicated human values, and community development.
