Book Exhibition Show – National

Even in this digital age, book exhibits still play an important role in the publishing industry. Exposure at events like this can get your book front and centre to thousands of potential readers, which is why we have included a national exhibit marketing service in our Full Colour Paramount publishing package. If you want to reach out to key industry stakeholders, publishers, and booklovers all gathered in one place, this is the perfect marketing avenue for you and your book.

What you get with this service:

  • Inclusion in a National Book Exhibit show. You can take your pick from a list of available National shows and choose the one you think will best suit your marketing plans and provide the exposure your book deserves.

  • Inclusion in the Exhibit Catalogue
  • One paperback copy of your book to be displayed during the event

How It Works:

  • At the show of your choice, your book will be assigned a number, based on where it lies alphabetically by publisher at national venues.
  • Your book's entry in the exhibit catalogue includes the title, your name as the author (as well as illustrator and/or editor where applicable), year of publication, price, ISBN, a 25-word description (feel free to write your own, or our professional copywriters can do it for you), and citations of awards and/or honours received.
  • Xlibris' information is also gathered and included in the catalogue as part of the publisher directory, where all pertinent contact and distribution information is included.
  • Your book will be displayed along with other Xlibris titles in a prime position on the exhibit floor.
  • Your book will be displayed face out on the shelf.
  • A sticker bearing a unique QR code will be placed on the lower left hand side of the cover of your book that will be displayed. Book fair attendees can then scan the code using the CBE Book Fair Buddy app to learn more about your book. Using the app, they can add your book to their to-be-read list, share that with friends, family, or on their social media pages, and even get connected to a variety of reseller sites where they can purchase your book.
  • The official report and PDF of the exhibit catalogue can also be found online for up to one year after the event.
