I reported on the 13th Çukurova Book Fair earlier this month as part of a broader look at the exciting Turkish book market. This post is just to update the numbers.
365,000 visitors were hoped for, to beat 2019’s 363,575 visitors (up 7% on 2018) and in fact Çukurova 2020 drew a crowd of 368,344. A great start to the year.
But its by no means the biggest book fair in the country, and over 2 million visitors are expected to flood Turkey’s book fairs in 2020.
