1st Children's and Young Adults' Bookfair in Athens

My very next project (supervising) is the 1st Children's and Young Adults' Bookfair in Athens. Taking place from the 1st of February up until the 4th, it is housed at HELEXPO Exhibition Grounds, Maroussi, Athens. It is organized by The Ministry of Culture and the National Book Centre (EKEBI).

"Four days to communicate the pleasure of reading to children and young adults. A unique opportunity for them to meet their favourite writers and discover a magical new world"

At the exhibition you will find:
  • Publishers of children’s books will present their book-production and welcome young visitors to their stands.

  • Over 50 events: children’s theatre, meetings with favorite authors and illustrators, readings, musical performances, workshops, exhibitions.

  • A special stand where old toys and rare editions of children’s magazines from the collection of the Hellenic Literary and Historical Archive will be exhibited.(designed by Tetragon)
  • A central stand hosting the Guest of Honour: The Netherlands (designed by Tetragon)

  • A special stand hosting the two greek nominations for the International Andersen Award. (designed by Tetragon)

  • Screenings of short movies for children and young people (Camera Zizanio) by the Olympia International Film Festival (theatres designed by Tetragon)

We also designed the EKEBI stand, so I have a lot of stuff to supervise in two days only! I will be posting photos from the exhibition as soon as I return from my Athens trip.

Open to the public from 9.00 to 20.00 (on Monday until 16.00)
