IBPA is Honored to Represent Member Titles at BookExpo and BookCon 2018

Let IBPA take your books to the industry's premier trade show and consumer event.

IBPA member Steve Snyder, speaker and author of SHOT DOWN, signed copies of his book in IBPA's Cooperative Booth at BookExpo/BookCon


BookExpo is the premier event for North American publishing. Traditionally, this show marks the launch of book publishers' fall lists -- generally the biggest and most robust book list of the year. For publishers, BookExpo's primary function is to showcase these upcoming books in order to get them in front of those who want to buy and/or promote them: the thousands of booksellers who attend; libraries and school systems; foreign publishers; producers and other members of the media.

In 2018, the trade portion of the convention, the BookExpo portion, will be held Wednesday, May 30 through Friday, June 1, 2018 and the consumer convention, BookCon, will be held Saturday, June 2 through Sunday, June 3, 2018. There will be no overlap of the two on the show floor.

IBPA is able to support members' book(s) at BookExpo/BookCon in a few different ways. Most IBPA members purchase single-title display in our Cooperative Booth ($195/title - order link to come). In addition to onsite book display, those who sign up for single-title display and meet the submission deadline are added to our onsite book catalog, which includes book title, ISBN, price, cover art, company name, and website. Larger companies can purchase full-shelf display to accommodate 4-5 books along with catalogs or sell sheets ($800/shelf, including dedicated company signage - order link to come).

There are many ways to gather exposure for your book(s) as part of IBPA's Cooperative Booth. To help facilitate onsite marketing, all publishers displayed in IBPA's Cooperative Booth will receive a deeply discounted pass to the convention. Among other things, while onsite you can participate in an book signing or record a personal interview with IBPA. We also arrange a pretty great networking hour.

DEDICATED BOOTH SPACE: For those with even larger collections (and staff who can travel), dedicated booth space can be purchased to span both conventions. IBPA members  have the option of renting a half booth (5x10) or a full booth (10x10). Interested members should contact Terry Nathan at or 310-546-1818 for more information.
