Manassah is an initiative by Emirates Publishers Association to support Emirati Publishers with the marketing of their publications through various local and international book fairs and exhibitions.

​​Through the Manassah (Menassah) project, we aim to facilitate the participation of publishers who own less than 20 publications in local and international exhibitions in addition to help them present their work to the largest possible number of audience. This will allow our members to enter new markets and expand their business outside the local market.

Terms & Conditions for participating in "Manassah project"

  1. The Publisher must provide a clear and detailed list of the titles for each participation separately. Lists and books provided after the deadline will be rejected.

  2. The Publisher is committed to pricing the books in UAE Dirhams, and converting the currency when needed.

  3. Any violation of the terms and conditions or incomplete data, will effect the Publisher’s submission and EPA will return all received titles.

  4. EPA will provide a clear statement of the books sold and the books retrieved from each participation within a period of – not less than 10 working days from the date of the last day of the exhibition.
