Sharjah, November 11, 2021

Surging visitor traffic at the 40th Sharjah International Book Fair at Expo Centre Sharjah, has prompted an ‘orchestra conductor’ to step in and direct the smooth flow of visitors at the fair’s halls and pavilions.


Dressed in a bright ensemble, the ‘Event Commander’ from Netherlands-based TukkersConnexion, appeared to have fled from her orchestra group as she roamed the SIBF 2021 venue, directing visitors to turn left, right or move forward with a blow of her whistle. Her comic movements and baton waving antics delighted the crowds at SIBF 2021, evoking laughter and joy amongst both young and old visitors, who lined up to click selfies with the artist.
