If you’ve spent much time investigating the best ways to market and sell your self-published book, then you’ll already know that the value of a tactile face-to-face encounter is simply unmatched! What if you could get your book in front of agents, scouts, movie or TV production and development professionals, as well as scads and scads of potential new readers? This is what BookExpo can do for you!
Every year, the BookExpo (formerly Book Expo America, BEA) attracts over 100,000 attendees from all over the world and is the largest gathering of authors, booksellers, publishers, and industry professionals in North America! This year, the three-day expo will take place in New York City and conclude with BookCon, a signature two-day event for fans “where storytelling and pop culture collide.”
The BookExpo kicks off on Wednesday, May 31st at 9:00 AM and concludes on Friday, June 2nd at 5:00 PM. If you’re in the New York area (or can arrange to be in the New York area) we highly recommend that you stop on by the exhibition space and peruse both our display and the others available! Registration is now open for attendees through the BookExpo website.
But … what about your book?
If you’re looking to get your book into the BookExpo to further launch your career as an author, Outskirts Press can help you get there next year. Every year, we send a cohort of five of our works to the BookExpo, providing them valuable face-out exposure. We also send a representative to answer questions about your book, and feature your title in the trade show catalogue as a “title on display” for the reference of industry professionals. Just keep an eye out for our registration service when it rolls back around in 2018, with a deadline in early April!
