FIL 2018 Press Accreditation Request Form

Responsive image



The Guadalajara International Book Fair is the largest gathering of the Spanish-language book industry and each year receives over 3000 journalists from 20 countries.

Press accreditations are exclusively for members of the media and press contacts of the publishing houses participating in the Fair. They are issued by the Fair’s General Press Coordination.

Press accreditations give access to the fairgrounds for the duration of the Fair, to all the activities held in the different Rooms and in the Professionals’ area, to the concerts at the Esplanade, subject to availability, as well as to the Press Room and its services.

The number of accreditation badges given to each media is determined according to the frequency, significance (press run and audience reach), and the intended coverage of FIL activities.

In order to pick up your badge, it is mandatory to present a valid press ID from the media you represent, signed by the editor or director.


The press badge is a personal and non-transferable document. Its first issue is free of charge; badge replacement has a cost of 800.00 pesos.

Staff of the following departments will not receive press accreditation:
