The South African Book Fair is proudly brought to you by the South African Book Development Council (SABDC) and the Fibre Processing & Manufacturing Seta (FP&M Seta).

At the heart of the SABDC is an integrated strategy for the transformation and development of the book sector, with a focus on audience development, reading intervention, and market growth. The SABDC, with support from the FP&M Seta, chose to go ahead with #SABF2020 to support and contribute to the industry, to provide an opportunity for the sector to come together with a unity of purpose and to ensure that books and reading stay within people’s consciousness during this difficult time.

The SETA has assisted the SABDC in preparing for the challenge of elevating the book industry’s status and has made room for the ability & agility to respond to the current crisis.

“We are excited to continue enhancing our partnership with the South African Book Development Council (SABDC) which manages and runs the annual South African Book Fair. Their contribution and dedication to increase access to books in South Africa is something that resonates with us and fits in with the Fibre Processing and Manufacturing (FP&M) SETA sub-sectors of Printing, Print media and Publishing. It is encouraging to see how the new talent is emerging and exhibiting their work alongside very established authors”, comments Felleng Yende, CEO at FP&M SETA. (2019)
