The fair is the most important cultural event in the Iberian American sphere.
A curator will be established to define the content for Barcelona’s presence at the Guadalajara International Book Fair, along with a group to promote the city, resulting from private-public collaboration with representatives from the civil society.
The fair has featured a guest region, city or country of honour since 1993. The guest of honour plays an important role in each section of the event and Barcelona has made a commitment to carry out the following:
construction and ambience of the pavilion.
coordination and funding of a delegation of authors which includes as many categories and literary genres as possible.
dissemination of scientific heritage through leading content and figures.
guarantee a significant representation of editors, translators and agents.
boost the sector for illustration, design and new formats.
coordination with the University of Guadalajara on a programme to connect with the university and local academic world.
programme of shows for spectators between the ages of 3 and 12.
programme of visual and performing arts shows.
design of the gastronomy festival and the film area.
promotion of recent full-length films.
definition of the creative concept.
