Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/01/2018 -- Smith Publicity, one of the most successful bestselling book publicity firms in the industry, has exhibited at BookExpo (previously known as BookExpo America) for the past 15 years. In a recent blog post, this established firm considers some of the changes in this publishing industry event over the years and speculates on how it will evolve in the future.
BookExpo is America's number one book and author event. This expo offers experiences and opportunities for everyone in the publishing industry, including authors, booksellers, librarians, literary agents, distributors, and publishers.
This event, which was initially called the American Booksellers Association Convention and Trade Show, enjoyed a long period of stability from 1947 to 1971. In recent years, however, it has undergone several changes. The event location, length, and attendance have fluctuated dramatically over the years.
For example, the 2018 BookExpo boasted more visiting authors, a reimagined show, and industry-focused education, yet their attendance was only 7,700 — 200 people more than the 2017 expo, yet 13,300 people fewer than in 2015.
After thoroughly examining this event's changes over the years, Smith Publicity speculates about the future of BookExpo, as well as the future of the publishing industry.
Since 1997, Smith Publicity has represented thousands of books in every genre, by first-time authors, New York Times bestselling authors, and everyone in between. Their traditional book and e-book promotion services include a combination of traditional outreach and cutting-edge online strategies that get books noticed and boost sales.
