Film adaptations of books along with a graphic showcase of Indian cinema is the focus of the upcoming Delhi Book Fair, which has gone high technology with an exclusive mobile app designed for visitors to navigate the sprawling Pragati Maidan venue here.

“We are launching a mobile app which will tell people about the position of stalls, pavilions, washrooms and other essential amenities at the venue. This is an attempt to make the fair experience more relaxed and comfortable,” President, Federation of Indian Publishers (FIP), Ashok Gupta said.

The FIP in collaboration with Indian Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO) is organising the 20th edition of the nine-day fair beginning August 23 with the theme “Literature in Cinema”.

“Visitors can book their tickets online and avoid queue at the fair. We have also kept ten air-conditioned buses to ferry visitors from the gates to the halls,” V Meera, General Manager, ITPO said.
