About SIBF

Before the inaugural Selangor International Book Fair 2022, the book fair was held as the state level event known as the Selangor Book Fair, or “Pesta Buku Selangor” in Malay language.

The Selangor Book Fair has been organized for 16 years since 2006 including during the two-year of pandemic. Last year the book fair was successfully executed as a hybrid event for the first time to accommodate the customers who could not make it in person.

The hybrid book fair had even managed to invite six National Laureates and five renowned local authors to its inaugural segment “Hati & Minda Sasterawan” (Heart & Mind of the Laureates).

The state book fair had its modest beginnings at Kompleks PKNS Shah Alam in year 2006 and continued to be held there annually up to year 2010. The book fair then shifted its location to Shah Alam Convention Centre in 2011 and had seen its peak reach in year 2018 with 515,801 visitors.
