The in-person edition of the book fair will be running from Thursday to Sunday, September 14 to 17 this year at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City, as announced on Facebook on Thursday, February 2. Details on the fair’s hours, list of exhibitors and publishers, events, ticket details, and safety protocols have yet to be announced.
