We’re flying out to New York for Book Expo America 2019 on 29th to 31st May! We can hardly wait, and as we are not exhibiting this time round – just taking part as delegates – we’ll have plenty of time to meet distributors and retails, academic library suppliers and promote Indian and South Asian publishing in general.
Why go all the way to NYC for a book expo? Because Book Expo America is one of the most important annual events for the US publishing industry and a leading literary expo for the international publishing sector as well. Among the exhibitors and attendees are thousands of distributors, agents and publishers from around the world, coming together to celebrate literary culture and share experience in a wide range of fields.
***** A few of our Indian publishing partners will be represented at the event, which is an exciting development because the USA is the largest English book market worldwide. Many of our customers there are distributors and book retailers serving the US academic market, so the event gives us the opportunity to connect with this sector and expand the range of genres and titles demanded by American readers.
Book Expo America is a large event spanning several days and featuring booths from some of the world’s leading publishing houses, among them Penguin Random House and HarperCollins, as well as hundreds of independent businesses from across the USA and beyond. There is a full schedule of talks, discussion panels and seminars from leading international authors, and a variety of networking events for publishers, authors and distributors.
Registrations are still open, so if you’d like to attend New York’s most diverse and exciting literary event, please click here to secure your place. We hope you can join us.
