Although the 29th Tehran International Book Fair (TIBF) was held at its new venue Shahr-e-Aftab (Sun City) in south of Tehran earlier in May, the site is not host to the annual 22nd Press Exhibition which is currently underway at the  same venue as in the previous years – the Imam Khomeini Grand Mosalla (prayer grounds).

The managing director of Shahr-e-Aftab International Exhibitions Company, Seyed Mohammad Seyedi, said so far the newly-formed exhibition site has hosted three fairs. Starting with the book fair in May, it was followed by the first specialized exhibition of wood industry in August and the first China Trade Week in September.

Pointing to plans to hold 18 exhibitions at Sun City till September 2017, he noted that the largest auto show in the country has been programmed for next February. “We look into all requests sent to us and approve them if they suit the exhibition space. However, we had no request for the press exhibition and surely the organizers have a good reason for that,” Seyedi told IRNA.

The TIBF, which was organized at Mosalla until last year, will be held at Shahr-e-Aftab for the next four years. The new venue has been constructed to host all major exhibitions in the country. It will gradually replace the Mosalla situated in central Tehran, which creates torturous traffic jams when a fair is held there.
