Created at the initiative of booksellers and publishers from Rio Grande do Sul with the support of journalist Say Marques, secretary-director of the Diário de Notícias, the Porto Alegre Book Fair was inaugurated in 1955.
The event is considered a reference in the country for its democratic character and the consistency of the work it develops in the area of training readers and reading mediators, as well as 100% free cultural programming.
Held since its first edition in Praça da Alfândega, Historic Center of the state capital, the Fair is divided into General Area, International Area and Children and Youth Area. Hundreds of writers, illustrators, storytellers and other professionals attend the event, which features autograph sessions, round tables, workshops, lectures and artistic programming, among other activities.
For this edition of the fair, we are making available our self-service totems, which in addition to perfectly fitting the new theme of the fair (Innovation and technology), provide visitors with quick and practical access to all information of the fair.
More agility and ease for visitors!
Through touchscreem technology, the user has access to the complete map of the fair, where all exhibitors, publishers, complete list of events, stands and presentation spaces are presented, thus facilitating their movement within the event.
When we met with the organizers of the fair, an extremely important point was raised, access to programming. As in all editions of the Book Fair, hundreds of activities are available to the public, such as lectures, plays, debates, among others. Thus, organizing and providing information on these activities as well as registration for participation becomes a challenge that increases each year.
With the challenge presented, we strategically distributed our totems within the fair space, facilitating access to programming and registration for activities, bringing more agility to the user and controlling the fair organizers.
This edition brings unpublished space at the Porto Alegre Book Fair, Arena Inovação! In this space, will take place from the 1st to the 17th of November, several lectures, panels, workshops, exhibitions and events focused on content focused on new technologies, social impact and innovation in general.
Our self-service totems deliver solutions that meet all market segments, whether it's time to buy a movie ticket or make an appointment for a medical appointment.
