BookExpo America in Chicago
May 11-13, 2016
BookExpo America (BEA) is North America’s largest gathering of book trade professionals attracting an international audience. The event is widely known as an ideal place for content creators, media, booksellers, rights professionals, and movie and television executives to meet new authors, discover new books, learn about trends shaping the book industry, and network with those who have a passion for books and reading. BEA is foremost a gathering place for creative writers and thinkers and the commerce they create. It is recognized for the media attention it brings to upcoming books as well as for the notable authors it attracts to the convention itself. BEA is organized with the support of association partners including the Association of American Publishers (AAP) and the American Booksellers Association (ABA).
As with every BEA, the event will appeal to the industry on multiple levels. Booksellers will be given opportunities to meet with publishers, connect with authors and network with other retailers, and share ideas on best practices. Librarians will take center stage with programming that is being developed by fellow librarians who are on the pulse of activities in the field. Agents and authors will get the inside track with discussions on rights, options for publishing, formats and more while publishers will dissect analytics and case studies, and hold discussions on tools, workflow, social media success stories, and more.
