My longer tenured readers know that I have been attending the Book Expo America event at the Javits Center for a few years now but this year the 2016 event had moved to Chicago, IL and despite being informed that we could wander as press once again – the logistics were just not doable for me. There were just too many demands on my time right here in NYC to be travelling for a convention. I hated to miss it but was quite pleased when I saw this image on the main site for the BEA.
Yep, the Book Expo America is returning to NYC for the 2017 event and since its in tandem with the still growing Book Con, you can most likely expect that to be here as well. Sorry Chicago, this convention belongs to the Big Apple and you cannot have it. I’m going to mark this down on my schedule and vie for press credentials once again should my time permit my attendance. Sometimes its better than others for my outlets and I do enjoy attending and seeing familiar PR reps in person for a change. If you are a blogger that focuses on the written word then you should look into doing the same. Perhaps some of you newer readers would like to peruse the posts from the past years conventions and if you said “yes” to that, you can click on THIS LINK.
