Decision taken to move event to May 4-5 due to COVID-19 Coronavirus emergency.
The Bologna Children’s Book Fair and the Bologna Licensing Trade Fair have both been rescheduled as a result of the COVID-19 Coronavirus emergency in Italy.
The Book Fair will now take place from Monday May 4 to Thursday May 7, while the Licensing Trade Fair will run on Monday May 4 and Tuesday May 5.
A statement from the organiser of both events – Bologna Fiere – read: “We, of course, understand the organisational problems this postponement will cause. However, given the current national and international situation, we felt duty bound to take this difficult decision. We very much hope you can fit these new dates into your work schedule and that we will be able to welcome you to Bologna as usual.
“In the next few hours we will be publishing more detailed information on our website regarding the organisational details. In any event, we are available for any further information you may require.”
