Starting from 1990, the first Hong Kong Book Fair was held. The Fair has become an annual major event in Hong Kong with the number of visitors reaching a new high every year. The organiser, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council consistently strives to promote a strong reading culture in the public sphere. Apart from extensively inviting the public to the Fair to visit and buy books, they also organise diversified cultural activities during the Book Fair period.

The 2020 Hong Kong Book Fair will be held from 16-22 December 2020.
