A new exhibitions centre will be built in Sharjah as part of an extension for the existing Sharjah International Book Fair, H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah revealed.

Sheikh Sultan told journalists during a tour of the Frankfurt International Book Fair that a budget has already been put aside for the project, according to WAM.

The centre will host major local and international events as Sharjah continues to build its image as the cultural capital of the UAE through its restored heritage sites, mosques and traditional old souqs.

The expansion is also meant to be in line with the continuous growth of the Sharjah International Book Fair, boosting the number of participants, visitors, events and sales.
