200+ NEW EXHIBITORS IN BEA 2012


This is from a brief press release that went out yesterday - stuff I love to share.

Areas of Growth Include Digital Zone, Children’s Pavilion,
Gift & Sidelines Companies

Norwalk, CT, May 30, 2012:  Officials at BookExpo America (BEA) have revealed that over 200 new companies, representing 20,000 square feet of exhibit floor space, will be participating in this year’s event.  This is an 18% growth in new exhibitors from 2011 to 2012.  In addition, 87 new exhibitors in 2011 have renewed their association for 2012 bringing the overall number of companies with only one or two years of participation to 289.  The areas of special interest for new companies signing up for BEA include the Digital Zone (27 new booths or kiosks); the Children’s Pavilion (24 new booths); and companies displaying Gifts & Sidelines (33 new booths).    

BookExpo America, which will take place in New York City at the Jacob K. Javits Center, June 4 – 7, is the largest book industry event in North America, and one of the largest gatherings of English language publishers in the world.  The show’s vast array of publishers, book industry services and related retail products provides attendees the chance to uncover unique and special products that make their stores and collections one of a kind.  

“While adding new companies and losing old ones is always part of the game, it has been particularly encouraging to see so many new exhibitors added in our current economic climate,” notes Steve Rosato, Show Manager for BEA.   “We have exhibitors from 26 countries, we have attendees from all 50 states, and we boast a huge gathering of the most famous authors writing today.  On top of this, we are based in the media capital of the world which offers special opportunity for everyone at BEA.   Our goal is simple … we want to provide unparalleled leverage and access for our exhibitors as well as our attendees.”

Some of the notable and high profile authors who will be speaking at BEA this year and bringing major national media attention to the show include Neil Young, Stephen Colbert, Barbara Kingsolver, Junot Diaz, Jimmy Fallon, Michael Chabon, and Chris Colfer, among many others.
