  • Will there still be the ‘Adopt-an-Exhibitor’ programme?

    We are currently doing away with the ‘Adopt-an-Exhibitor’ programme. As travel opens up, we strongly encourage international Exhibitors to be physically present at the fair as it significantly increases audience interest (and sales). However, if you are unable to attend, you may make separate arrangements with a local Exhibitor to assist you with the staffing of your booth and sales of your books.


  • Are local and international Exhibitors able to share one Booth?

    Up to 2 local/international Exhibitors may share one booth of any option. However, you may only submit your application as one entity.


  • I am a local Exhibitor. Am I allowed to share a Booth with another local Exhibitor?

    Up to 2 Exhibitors may share one booth of any option. However, please make your own arrangements to share the booth, and submit your application as one entity.


  • How many people can staff my booth?

    All booths may be staffed by up to two persons.


  • Can I sell non-book items (i.e. CDs/cassettes, postcards, art objects, merch) at my booth?

    Yes, but please ensure that more than 50% of items sold at your booth are books/publications.


  • Will there still be a Zine Room/Section at SGABF2023?

    There will no longer be a Zine Room/Section at SGABF2023 as we have expanded it into a full-fledged zine fair: Cut Copy Paste. However, we welcome all zinemakers to apply as an Exhibitor.
