Book Expo America Starts Today

Last year’s BEA was diminished by a combination of the poor economy and turmoil in the book industry. This year’s version will be somewhat smaller and shorter, but there will be more focus on new media and a much higher profile by e-book publishers and retailers.

What’s new and different at BEA 2010? The Expo’s home page says: “Let’s start with three event-packed days and a new mid-week schedule. BEA will showcase more than 500 authors, hundreds of new titles and 1,500 exhibitors (check out Exhibitor Show Specials!) all on one show floor—along with the IDPF Digital Book Zone (learn about the eBook and eReading Revolution!). See and meet authors discussing their books and sharing their back stories during special events and on the all-new Midtown Stage which joins the Uptown and Downtown Stages. Learn and network during the ‘Big Ideas at BEA’ Conference and the ABA Day of Education (open to all BEA attendees). And if you’re in the business of buying and selling rights, be sure to learn more about the International Rights & Business Center”
