News & Opinion: Headed To BookExpo America 2009

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:07 PM – Filed under: Publishing Industry

Aaron and I are headed to New York City tomorrow to attend Book Expo America, the yearly event for book publishing in North America.
Many are holding their breath wondering what it will be like this year. Exhibitor space is down 25% and attendees registered is down almost 30%. Some business book publishers like Amacom and Berrett-Kohler have chosen not to participate this year.
We still looking forward to going. The tribe needs an event like this to gather and share.
