Since the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair’s launch in 1981, the Fair has striven to uphold the original mission of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan, the founding father of the UAE. The Sheikh believed in education and culture as fundamental pillars for building a strong modern state and developing international relationships. Initially named the Islamic Book Fair, the Fair was created to provide a meeting point and marketplace for publishing houses in the Arab world. It was also designed to be a forum through which to grow the region’s publishing industry, expand business activities across the globe and turn Abu Dhabi into a major centre for the publishing world. Abu Dhabi International Book Fair has since gone from strength to strength, today providing an ideal global marketplace and a gateway to the thriving Arab publishing industry. In recent years, the Fair has enjoyed celebrating Abu Dhabi International Book Fair’s and Abu Dhabi’s heritage, with a spotlight on their founder, entitled ‘Sheikh Zayed: Light Illuminates the Future’ – featuring a series of panels and seminars, as well as an exhibition charting his intellectual legacy. Abu Dhabi International Book Fair has also been proud to honour the works of other great Arab thinkers, such as the renowned poet Abu at-Tayyeb Al Mutanabbi and philosopher Ibn Rushed. Every year, we are thrilled to introduce international visitors to new dimensions of the region’s rich cultural and literary heritage. The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair is the bedrock of the publishing industry across the Middle East and North Africa. The 31st edition of ADIBF will be held from 23 to 29 May 2022 at Abu Dhabi International Exhibition Center. The Fair looks forward to stepping up its competitiveness, consolidating its regional position and enhancing its global presence through excellence in providing professional and cultural content. It also seeks to combine the regional publishing sectors and creative industries and encourage endeavors to support industries that contribute to enhance readable, visual, audio and interactive culture, thus consolidating Abu Dhabi's position as a hub for Arab publishing and global creative content. This further presents ADIBF as a global platform for creative content based on language in its global context.

Frankfurter Buchmesse has been organised by Frankfurter Buchmesse GmbH since 1949 when 205 German exhibitors met in the Paulskirche in Frankfurt for the first post-war book fair. However, the history of Frankfurter Buchmesse goes back much further - to the 15th century. At that time, Johannes Gutenberg invented book printing just a few kilometres from downtown Frankfurt. Today, Frankfurter Buchmesse is the largest book fair in the world, an international trademark and a model for cultural events. The company is active in international publishing throughout the year and well beyond the trade fair days. Frankfurter Buchmesse strives to be the key business event for their customers, providing them with all the components they need to succeed.

The book fair, is a platform to share passion for good stories, and experience creativity that engages all the senses, where fans of renowned authors can meet, and enjoy close encounters with some of their idols. At the heart of it, Frankfurter Buchmesse is a crossroad, where people and culture meet.

Wordworks is a South African non-profit organisation that focuses on early language and literacy development in the first eight years of children’s lives. Since 2005 they have worked in under-resourced communities with adults best positioned to positively impact young children’s language and literacy development – parents and caregivers, family and community members, home-visitors, early childhood development practitioners and Grade R to Grade 3 teachers. They are working collaboratively to grow an informed, capable, resourced and motivated network of schools, organisations and institutions that promote the importance of, and work effectively for the improvement of, children’s early language and literacy, through their association with their programmes and materials. Wordworks offers training, resources and support for partners who wish to use their early language and literacy programmes in their own networks. Their programmes all include messaging about the importance of language for literacy development and the need to build children’s home language in the early years as a foundation for the acquisition of a second language. They advocate for children to have access to multilingual, language rich stories and books, as well as meaningful experiences with print. They also know that letter-sound knowledge and phonological awareness are key predictors of whether children learn to read and write, and have developed resources and guidelines to support these important foundations for literacy. Their programmes are based on an emergent literacy perspective and the idea that learning to read and write is a process that happens over time in the context of supportive and responsive relationships. They offer five main programmes, which are used by their network of partners which include preschools, schools, libraries, community organisations, training and resource NGOs, tertiary institutions, education districts and other government departments. Programmes are sustained through ongoing relationships with Wordworks, including refresher training and events, input and guidance, access to resources and opportunities, sharing of learning, and support for programme monitoring and evaluation. They develop, produce and distribute innovative, high quality multilingual materials to support early language and literacy learning. They invest in public education and advocacy, sharing knowledge and ideas to open doors for all children.

The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, people with print disabilities, and the general public. Our mission is to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge. We began in 1996 by archiving the Internet itself, a medium that was just beginning to grow in use. Like newspapers, the content published on the web was ephemeral - but unlike newspapers, no one was saving it. Today we have 25+ years of web history accessible through the Wayback Machine and we work with 950+ library and other partners through our Archive-It program to identify important web pages. As our web archive grew, so did our commitment to providing digital versions of other published works. Today our archive contains: 625 billion web pages, 38 million books and texts, 14 million audio recordings (including 240,000 live concerts), 7 million videos (including 2 million Television News programs), 4 million images, 790,000 software programs. Anyone with a free account can upload media to the Internet Archive. We work with thousands of partners globally to save copies of their work into special collections. Because we are a library, we pay special attention to books. Not everyone has access to a public or academic library with a good collection, so to provide universal access we need to provide digital versions of books. We began a program to digitize books in 2005 and today we scan 4,000 books per day in 18 locations around the world. Books published prior to 1927 are available for download, and hundreds of thousands of modern books can be borrowed through our Open Library site. One of the Internet Archive's missions is to serve people who have difficulty interacting with physical books, so most of our digitized books are available to people with print disabilities (learn about access here). Like the Internet, television is also an ephemeral medium. We began archiving television programs in late 2000, and our first public TV project was an archive of TV news surrounding the events of September 11, 2001. In 2009, we began to make selected U.S. television news broadcasts searchable by captions in our TV News Archive. This service allows researchers and the public to use television as a citable and sharable reference. The Internet Archive serves millions of people each day and is one of the top 300 web sites in the world. A single copy of the Internet Archive library collection occupies 99+ Petabytes of server space (and we store at least 2 copies of everything). We are funded through donations, grants, and by providing web archiving and book digitization services for our partners. As with most libraries, we value the privacy of our patrons, so we avoid keeping the IP (Internet Protocol) addresses of our readers and offer our site in https (secure) protocol.

Le Parole del museo di Ludovico Solima meritano un'attenta lettura da parte di chi opera nei e per i musei. È un ottimo contributo della museologia italiana al ridisegno del museo del futuro. Ludovico è professore ordinario di Economia e gestione delle imprese e docente di "Gestione delle imprese culturali" presso l'Università della Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli" (ex Seconda Università degli Studi di Napoli), Dipartimento di Economia. Alberto Garlandini dice di accogliere con favore l'invito a scrivere la prefazione del volume Le parole del museo. L'amico e collega Ludovico Solima ha scelto di presentare la sua pluriennale riflessione museologica attraverso un elenco di voci, le “parole” citate nel titolo, e questo rappresenta una novità nel panorama editoriale della museologia italiana. Ludovico afferma di essersi ispirato al Dizionario dei colori del nostro tempo di Michel Pastoureau. In qualità di presidente di Icom, il Consiglio Internazionale dei Musei, sottolineo che la sua metodologia di ricerca per oggetti ha molte somiglianze con quella per parole e concetti chiave adottati da Icom per aggiornare la definizione di museo. Ludovico Solima's Words from the museum deserve careful reading by those who work in and for museums. It is an excellent contribution of Italian museology to the redesign of the museum of the future. Ludovico is a professor of Economics and business management and lecturer of "Management of cultural enterprises" at the University of Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli" (former Second University of Naples), Department of Economics. Alberto Garlandini says he welcomes the invitation to write the preface of the volume Le parole del museo. The friend and colleague Ludovico Solima has chosen to present his many years of museological reflection through a list of items, the "words" mentioned in the title, and this represents a novelty in the editorial panorama of Italian museology. Ludovico says he was inspired by Michel Pastoureau's Dictionary of Colors of our time. As president of Icom, the International Council of Museums, I highlight that his methodology of research by items has many similarities with that by words and key concepts adopted by Icom to update the definition of a museum.

El Fondo de Cultura Económica, también conocido como FCE, o simplemente “el Fondo”, es un grupo editorial en lengua española, asentado en México, con presencia en toda Hispanoamérica. Desde su fundación, el Fondo ha publicado más de 10,000 obras, de las cuales cerca de 5,000 se mantienen en circulación, y cuenta con un catálogo electrónico de más de 2,000 títulos. La historia del Fondo de Cultura Económica comienza en 1934 gracias al genio y la inventiva de Daniel Cosío Villegas. Su formación como historiador, sociólogo, ensayista y economista, hizo que la vocación primera de esta casa editorial se centrara en publicar exclusivamente textos de economía destinados a los estudiantes de educación superior. No es sino hasta 1943 que el Fondo de Cultura Económica inicia sus publicaciones en otras áreas de estudios, tales como aquellas relacionadas con filosofía. Bajo la dirección de José Gaos y el impulso de Eugenio Ímaz, aparecen “Filosofía de la Ilustración” de Ernst Cassirer, y, “De Leibniz a Goethe” de Wilhelm Dilthey. El crecimiento de la popularidad de esta editorial permitió que el 2 de enero de 1945 se inaugurara en Buenos Aires, Argentina, la primera filial del Fondo de Cultura Económica, bajo la dirección de Arnaldo Orfila Reynal, quien posteriormente se convertiría en director general de la editorial. Además, gracias a las publicaciones de la colección “Tierra Firme” el prestigio del Fondo se aumenta considerablemente. En el período entre finales de los años cuarenta y el inicio de los años sesenta se consolidan diversos proyectos editoriales: aparecen los primeros Breviarios, títulos de “Vida y pensamiento de México”, la colección “Popular” y la emblemática “Letras Mexicanas”, y se inaugura su primera librería, hoy llamada Daniel Cosío Villegas. Actualmente, el Fondo de Cultura Económica tiene presencia en Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Perú, España y Estados Unidos. Próximamente, se abrirán librerías en Cuba y Bolivia. En su nueva etapa, iniciada en 2019, el Fondo de Cultura Económica dio un giro para modificar la política editorial con el objetivo fundamental de incentivar el acercamiento a sus lectores a partir de una significativa reducción de precios y de la ampliación de nuestra oferta editorial. En su página web también se pueden encontrar un amplio catálogo de lecturas electrónicas, lecturas gratuitas, adelantos de sus próximas publicaciones y mucha más información relevante para los amantes de la lectura.

My major corporate achievements have been the implementation and setup of the 1st and current South African National Lotteries and my most recent achievement has been the setup of a Scratch Card Lottery in Zambia. One is never too old to experience and learn new things, I have now entered the digital arena, this is certainly exiting and the way forward.

My name is Noxolo Femele and I'm 42 years old and I have 2 kids both are girls age 17 and 14. I worked for 43 Air School as a Sales consultant for the past 5 year, and while I was there I used to help out at the Admin area and at Marketing department. That had lead me on having the ambition to become 1 of the Managers but unfortunately we got retrenched. Then I went to work at Lendcor group as a Sales consultant for 1 year 6 months same we got retrenched. That's where I decided to start my small business just to make money and put food on the table, but things are not doing well due to covid19.
