In 2023, the Sheikh Zayed Book Award for Publishing & Technology was awarded to independent Egyptian publisher ElAin Publishing, acclaimed for their range of literary, academic, and non-fiction titles from all over the Arab world and for their focus on cultural and literary diversity. ElAin has published works by several established authors but is also committed to providing opportunities for young authors.

During the event, speakers discussed pressing matters in the Arab publishing world, the importance of institutional support for independent publishers, current opportunities for publishers, and the value of fostering the next generation of Arabic authors.
