The Lahore Literary Festival’s Board of Governors and Advisory Committee are grateful to the dozens of student volunteers from the Lahore Grammar School (LGS) system and the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) who managed LLF 2013 with ownership and equanimity. These volunteers helped ensure that festival-goers had a pleasant and positive experience at the debut LLF.

LLF also thanks Wateen Telecom for setting up Freedom Booths for festival-goers to record their impressions and for providing free Wi-Fi at the venue. We’re also grateful to Turning Tables for providing the stage furniture for the event and greenroom, Toni & Guy for hair and makeup, and to those who set up exhibitions and book and food stalls at LLF 2013.

LLF also thanks the Alhamra Arts Council and the City District Government of Lahore; our media partner, the Dawn Media Group; our PR partner, Latitude; the British Council; Matrix; AG Architectural Engineering and Design (AEDL); and Pharmagen.
