The Press Release:

Dear Valued Customer,
It is no secret that our industry has experienced radical change over the last 20, 30, 40 years. This surely can also be said about BookExpo, as tradeshows reflect the evolution, fluctuations and business trends of the industry they serve.

As our world changes, so must our way of gathering to learn, share ideas and connect buyers and sellers. In that vein, the BookExpo team has been in a phase of exploration to determine the right ingredients to deliver the perfect sauce.

We know that each segment of the industry has unique needs that sometimes clash. Ultimately, with your commitment and open, engaged feedback we believe we will land on the right environment and format for you to accomplish your business goals.
