Speaking at a press conference in Tehran on Tuesday, Abdul Hadi Feqhizadeh, the Quran and Etrat Deputy of Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, noted that this year’s expo will be held virtually.
He said expert forums with the participation of Iranian and foreign scholars, virtual book fair, and a children and teenagers section will be other parts of the expo.
More than 500 publishers will present their books on different religious and Quranic subjects at the book fair, according to the official.
He added that 500 Quranic, religious and cultural institutes will also showcase their activities at the exhibition.
Feqhizadeh noted that the exhibition will be launched on Saturday in a ceremony to be attended by Culture Minister Seyed Abbas Salehi.
The virtual expo is going to be held instead of the annual international Quran exhibition that was cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Tehran International Quran Exhibition is annually organized by the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance in the holy month of Ramadan.
