The scheme came to be just a tad too late in the day and without confirmation of any registration arrangement, room, LCD projector or other facility I felt it would be a waste of time to go ahead. The Book Fair team ain't to blame, they have their hands full with a 500,000 person event and consequently have bigger fish to fry.
At some stage later this year I hope to do a similar event with the Dubai Literary Group. In the meantime, if you have questions about self publishing in the UAE, drop a comment here or hit me up on Twitter - @alexandermcnabb and I'll do the best I can to help out.
