The book has a familiar design but with all new content and colorful graphics. It has been expanded by a whopping 20% over recent years, mostly directed at the added features and new media tools in this year's Fair. Page after page the book will deliver useful content that will help you maximize your time and enhance your Fair experience. We have added QR codes to this year’s book; they take you to web pages for additional information, like the most recent schedule. To use the codes, simply hold your phone over them with the camera on and press the button that pops up. Presto! There’s the web page on your phone’s browsers. An electronic version will be available soon on the website.
