BEA Potpourri Post

BEA is the midst of our busy fall as the team will be participating in NAIBA, NEIBA, Frankfurt & the Heartland Fall Forum over the the next few weeks.  Frankfurt is important for BEA as we get access to so many current customers as well as meeting many new prospects.  It will be s different feel as Frankfurt has consolidated the fair, closing Hall 8 (the English language Hall) and I suspect this will be a good thing and save me a couple of miles of walking between halls on a daily basis.  If you will be in Frankfurt, please visit the BEA booth: Hall 6.0 Stand B35 for a visit, we will have snacks and refreshments! 

We also enjoy going to as many of the regional events as we can staff, appreciating the direct feedback with booksellers as well as the time to talk with exhibitors one on one.  I am particularly excited about the Heartland Fall Forum for a number of reasons.  One, we are taking advantage of the chance to do a site inspection of McCormick.  That will be on Friday Oct. 9th at 9:30 - email me if you are interested in participating (  It has been 11 years since BEA was last in Chicago and it will be helpful to see the venue in person.  Here is the main reason for my excitement:  BEA will be doing a focus group with booksellers to hear first hand on the things we can be doing that better serve their needs at BEA.  I am very grateful to the ABA, the Great Lakes and Midwest Booksellers Association to helping BEA do this at the Heartland event.
