The event is also a powerful marketing for the book industry, as the fair participants study vital tendencies of the publishing market, strengthen contacts and develop new ones with Russian and international companies and sign contracts.

Last year, publishers from 63 countries participated in this exhibition and Iran put more than 500 book titles on show, including the third and fourth volumes of a well-known Iranian book Good Tales for Good Children by Mahdi Azar Yazdi translated into Russian were showcased, along with Divan of Omar Khayyam presented in five languages and a Russian version of Muslims Knowledge written by Mohammad Reza Hakimi.

The 2015 edition of the fair is scheduled to be inaugurated on September 2 and four days after the opening of the event it will be concluded on September 6.
