Today marks the beginning of the famous Book Expo America (BEA) trade show, America’s largest annual writing\publishing trade show and event, which runs now through Friday in New York City. Every year during the last week of May, the BEA welcomes more than 100,000 authors, publishers, agents and buyers from all over the world. While the attendance is international, the focus is distinctly American, with American books, publishers and authors receiving the main interest.
Far from a stuffy, snooty affair, the BEA trade show offers attendees a smorgasbord of vitally informative and entertaining conferences, exhibits, specials and even celebrity appearances from the likes of Julianne Moore, Nathan Lane, Alan Cumming, Martin Short, Stan Lee, Al Roker and Jason Segal (pictured, left) — and much more.
It may be too late to jet out to BEA this year, but it’s plenty early to start planning for 2016 — and Outskirts Press can get you there! By arranging exhibition through Outskirts Press, your book will receive valuable, face-out exposure on an exclusive shelf with 4 other titles. A representative will be on-hand to personally answer questions about your book. This way, interested parties can make further contact, during or after the fair. All inquiries Outskirts Press receives about your book will be forwarded directly to you for personal follow-up in a Post-Show wrap-up.
Thinking ahead to the 2016 BEA and other high-profile book fairs? Let Outskirts Press help you make the most of a book fair appearance, so you get the most valuable exposure!
