Opinion Poll on Visitors’ Evaluation of the Abu Dhabi Book Fair

    TRENDS Center for Research and Consultation is conducting a visitor satisfaction survey for the Abu Dhabi Book Fair. The survey aims to measure the extent of visitors’ satisfaction with the level of organization in terms of the timing of the book fair, services provided, accompanying events, as well as facilities offered to visitors and prices of books. It also aims to identify the purpose of the visitors’ visits, which in turn would provide a comprehensive database for studying the facts about the Abu Dhabi Book Fair and identifying ways to develop it in line with the actual needs of the community and regional and international developments.
