* Specially themed book exhibits of book genres or author collections.
* Screenings of movies based on books.
* Lotteries, free books, signed book auctions, quiz shows, a book bingo.

The convention seeks to bring together readers, writers, publishers, government and school organizations and book dealers to highlight the importance of reading and literacy in building an open world for every Filipino through books. All proceeds of the event will be donated to UNICEF in partnership with AHON Foundation.
