2007 Small Press Booth Options & Packages
A Small Press booth testimonial from 2006 show exhibitor Elmo Strutter, author and publisher of the IPPY Award-winning Drinktionary: "I took a chance as an exhibitor at BookExpo America 2006 in Washington DC this year to promote my self-published book, Drinktionary. I had one of the smallest and most remote booths in the Small Press Area, but it was one of the best promotional decisions I've made so far."
"My booth was constantly surrounded by people interested in my book to buy, promote or partner with. The success I had was incredible. I must have met over two thousand people and corporations to follow up with after the show."
"Not only did BookExpo give me more exposure than I could have hoped for, it also gave me a huge base of contacts to my book to its next steps."
Aland Greenspan to be Conference Keynote. The esteemed scholar and former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board will be
