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 2017, the trade portion of the convention, the BookExpo portion, will be held Thursday and Friday, June 1-2, 2017 and the consumer portion of the convention, BookCon, will be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 3-4, 2017. There will be no overlap of the two conferences on the show floor. Scroll below the videos for more information.

IBPA has secured a favorable location on the BookExpo/BookCon show floor in 2017. Click here to view the 2017 floor plan. IBPA's complex is at 2839.

IBPA's single-title display option includes one book displayed face-out within IBPA's Cooperative Booth. In addition, it's always a good idea to attend the shows at which your title is displayed. As an exhibitor within IBPA's Cooperative Booth, you'll be eligible for a discounted badge to both BookExpo and BookCon. More information about this benefit will be sent following your title registration.

What is BookExpo?

BookExpo is the #1 book and author event that offers the book industry access to new titles, authors, and education about the publishing industry. BookExpo is a great place to discover new titles and upcoming books and meet face-to-face with favorite and up-and-coming authors. It is a dynamic environment for networking, sourcing, and relationship building. BookExpo offers three event-packed days, 750+ authors, hundreds of new titles, 1,000+ exhibitors, and multiple Author Stages. BookExpo takes place June 1-2, 2017.

This is the trade portion of the show. Only book publishing professionals are given access to the show during BookExpo (not open to the public).

What is BookCon?

Taking place in New York City—the publishing and cultural capital of the world—BookCon is the event where storytelling and pop culture collide. Consumers and brands will experience the origin of the story in all its forms by interacting with the authors, publishers, celebrities and creators of content that influence everything we read, hear and see. BookCon is an immersive experience that features interactive, forward thinking content including Q+A’s with the hottest talent, autographing sessions, storytelling podcasts, special screenings, literary quiz shows and so much more. BookCon is the ultimate celebration of books, where your favorite stories come to life. BookCon takes place June 3-4, 2017.

These are the days when the show is open to the public. Professionals and public are both given access to the show during BookCon.

More info on the ALA Show...

The American Library Association's Annual Conference (scheduled for June 23-26, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois) is the premier event for libraries in the United States. IBPA members can purchase single-title display in IBPA’s Cooperative Booth. In addition to onsite book display, those members who sign up for single-title display and meet the submission deadline will be included in IBPA’s onsite book catalog, which includes book title, ISBN, price, distributors/wholesalers, company name, and website.

Displaying your book(s) in IBPA's Cooperative Booth at ALA will help put you in front of the library marketplace. In addition, it’s always a good idea to attend the show at which your title is displayed. As an exhibitor with IBPA, members are eligible for a FREE badge to the conference! You will also be eligible to sign up for low cost author signing/demo opportunities.

What is the ALA Annual Conference?

Over 10,000 librarians attend the ALA Annual Conference each year in order to save time and money by reviewing the books and services put on display by the hundreds of onsite vendors.

The focus of IBPA's participation in the ALA Annual Conference is to provide title visibility to acquisition librarians. IBPA members can purchase single-title display or full-shelf display in our Cooperative Booth at the ALA Annual Conference. For larger companies, full (10x10) and half (5x10) booth rental opportunities are also available.

Since IBPA has been attending the ALA Annual Conference for over 20 years, we have first pick of preferable space on the show floor. If you display with IBPA you won't be stuck in the back corner of the exhibit lot: you'll be up front and center where you belong.
