Book Fairs: showcase your book to the world

Book Fairs

Book Fairs Can Increase Your Sales

Book fairs, also known as 'event marketing', are valuable book marketing resources where independent authors can seize the opportunity, through highly organized book show events, to gain the attention of book agents, librarians, distributors, book publishers, booksellers and hollywood producers.

Reach important book buyers and television/film producers

The key buyers from major chain bookstores who make stocking decisions about which book titles will be placed on shelves for the following retail season, will be at these events and regularly make lucrative deals on the book fair's event floor. With your book presented cover and spine 'face out' for maximum exposure, on professionally staffed exhibits, this is a prime opportunity for you as a new author to make headway.

Investing in book fairs guarantee massive exposure for your book to the entire publishing industry including librarians, booksellers and tv/film producers who otherwise may never have heard about your ISBN title. If you're interested in seeing your book translated and sold in foreign languages, serialized for radio, or made into a television production or motion picture film, investing in a display at any of the books fairs below will provide you with an exciting opportunity to connect with the industry. Book titles will be displayed on high traffic locations at the book fair event on either Schiel & Denver or our partner's stands.
