The other day I helped share a healthy amount of the schedule of the now in progress, first-ever BookExpo Online. As you all know by now, a gathering of this size in an event space like the Javits Center is impossible based on the continuing problems with the Coronavirus Pandemic. Both the traditional BookExpo and The Book Con were cancelled as physical happenings and turned into online affairs. HERE
Following in similar fashion, the weekend will find the aptly named BookConline being presented on their Official Facebook Page and I’ve embedded the full schedule that the media was sent for your consumption. Since its the weekend and you’re still not really supposed to do anything, get up nice and early with a fresh pot of coffee and sit in front of Facebook. It’s not like you weren’t going to do a lot of that anyway – At least with BookConline you can learn a thing of three.
The Press Release:
As of today, the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center continues to be closed for all expo business due to its role as a field hospital for COVID-19 cases. Although it currently has no patients, the facility remains set-up as an active hospital and is in standby mode for the foreseeable future. Because of this, organizers of the New York International Auto Show have decided the next Show will take place April 2 – 11, 2021. Press Days are March 31 & April 1.
“Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have worked closely with the Governor’s office and with Javits officials to protect our attendees,” said Mark Schienberg, president of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, the organization that owns and operates the New York Auto Show. “We are extremely proud of the role the Javits Center has played during this difficult time, and we understand the need for it to remain ready to serve.” Continue reading The 2020 New York International Auto Show Is Cancelled; See You In 2021→
As was previously reported here on “The Chronicles”, the 2020 Edition of BookExpo, The Book Con and Unbound were cancelled as physical events due to the ban on large public assembly that was put into place to help stop the spread of the still in progress Coronavirus. More about that can be found HERE for those who like to be fully informed. With the event going virtual for the year, we’ve just received the schedule for the three days and the links on how you might participate. Take a look.
