Manila International Book Fair 2011: Free Tickets!

Monday, September 12, 2011 Stef dela Cruz 0 Comments

The Manila International Book Fair 2011 is fast approaching – and I can hardly wait! This is the fourth time in a row that I shall be attending the book fair and, as always, I can barely keep my excitement in check. Of course, the fact that I’m about to share FREE TICKETS for free entrance to the book fair is one other thing to be excited about. (Read below to get your free ticket!)

Already in its 32nd year, the Manila Book Fair to be held this September 2011 will be held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. It starts on September 14 (Wednesday) and ends on September 18 (Sunday), from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

There is an entrance fee, usually about PhP10 – very much worth it. During the book fair, expect a slew of events, book launches, book signings, discounts, and giveaways. To get the most out of your visit, make sure to avail of the book fair directory that shows a map indicating the different stalls of different publishing houses.

Wear comfortable shoes because it might take you half a day to browse through all the stores. Bring a bottle of water as well, or you may avail of the different food options being offered inside the venue.
