Iran is planning to hold the 26th edition of International Book Fair at Tehran's Grand Prayer Grounds hosting numerous publishers and visitors.

Many Iranian and international publishers are to flock to this year’s book fair that will be held from May 1 to 12, 2013.

Over 50 foreign publishers have applied to take part in the fair so far, Director of Iranian Cultural Association of International Publishers Mahmoud Amouzegar said.

Germany, India, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Britain and United States are among the submitted countries, he added.

German foundation Bertelsmann is programmed to hold an educational seminar on book copyright on the sidelines of the book fair, Amouzegar noted.

Tehran International Book Fair is annually held as a social and cultural phenomenon with book displays, panel discussions and publishing deals.

The Fair is considered the most significant event of its kind in Asia and the Middle East and a significant venue for publishers and book lovers to exchange opinions and experiences.
