Emergency Situation at Cairo Book Fair today, Friday, due to the book signing event of Saudi author Osama Al-Muslim. The Arab Literature Center for Publishing and Distribution held the signing event for the works of Saudi author Osama Al-Muslim, published in Hall 2, Booth C36.

The emergency situation began with heavy crowds and overwhelming demand to reserve coupons to attend the signing event. Originally, Plaza 1 was the scheduled location for the event.. However, due to the massive turnout, there was confusion regarding the venue that could accommodate such a large number of attendees until the last moments before the author’s arrival. At the end, the signing event took place at the signing booth situated in Hall 2.

Additionally, the publishing house responsible for the book experienced a significant influx of visitors, prompting them to halt sales. They announced via the fair’s microphones that sales at their booth were suspended and directed those interested in purchasing the author’s works to visit the signing booth outside Hall 2, and that was the Emergency Situation at Cairo Book Fair.
