New Delhi, India: Necessity is the mother of all innovation. Keeping in mind the pandemic and the inability to host physical events, FIP i.e. Federation of Indian Publisher has announced a virtual Delhi Book Fair 2020. The FIP has partnered with pragatiE, an innovative virtual platform for exhibitions, product launches and events for DBF2020, that will attract a wide array of audience from all over the country & expanding globally will be held on 30th & 31st October 2020.
The federation has tied-up with ITPO to host the Delhi Book Fair every year since 1995 to give publishers a chance to interact directly with their readers. But due to the current global health crisis and the need to maintain social distancing, the federation has decided to go digital for this anticipated event. Considering that the Indian publishing industry has usually never been early adopters of technology, this is surely a commendable move by FIP.

As the only Indian publisher’s federation registered with International Publishers Association, Geneva, the federation commands an unmatched reputation in the country.
