Starting this year, Oradea will host a special event dedicated exclusively to books and education: GAUDEAMUS Fair, the first edition to be held from 7th to 11th of May, in the exhibition hall located at the entrance of Casa de Cultura a Sindicatelor. The Oradea edition of this event is organized by Radio Romania (Cultural Centre Media Radio Romania, Gaudeamus team) in partnership with the Municipality of Oradea.

GAUDEAMUS Fair Oradea is the newest component of a nation-wide project initiated and run by Radio Romania as the READING Program. The main objective of the project is to support our country’s book market through events such as exhibitions, conducted for 20 years under the name GAUDEAMUS. The entire program currently comprises 79 fairs organized in Bucharest (Gaudeamus International Book and Education Fair and GAUDEAMUS School Book Fair), Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, Craiova, Mamaia, Targu Mures, Sibiu and Brasov (united under the GAUDEAMUS Caravan), over 2,180,000 visitors and about 8,600 editorial events.

The Pilot edition of GAUDEAMUS Fair Oradea (within the GAUDEAMUS Caravan) will bring to the public an offer and a concept intended to win, since the first attempt, the hearts and trust of visitors, so that the event will soon become a landmark of the city’s cultural life. Registering of exhibitors to Oradea GAUDEAMUS Fair will take place from 31st of March 31 to 11th of April, 2014.
