Through Thursday, May 27th, Lulu will be at the Javits Convention Center in New York City for Book Expo America (BEA), the largest book trade fair in America. We’re very excited to be a part of BEA because it is one of the few times that so many remarkable authors, publishers, businesses, educators, and distributors come together from all over the world to discuss the current trends in the publishing industry and share their passion for books.
This year’s BEA already has close to 30,000 attendees and we’re hoping to reach out to each one of them to inspire them to publish and share their works in a whole new way with Lulu’s open publishing model.
In addition to BEA, we’re also making a splash at the DIY Author’s Conference that is held at the Javits Center today before BEA begins. Sherrie, our very own Sales and Services Rep, will be showing people just how easy it is to use Lulu to become a successfully published author. Sherrie is helping authors choose from Lulu’s robust service options, make content available in multiple formats, and find millions of new readers through our vast distribution channels that include Amazon.com and Apple’s iBookstore. It all adds up to maximize the rewards for authors and readers alike, no matter how they’re measured.
If you’re at BEA or DIY this week, please stop by and say “hi!” We’re at booth 2348 at BEA and table 4 at DIY. We’d love to meet you and help you get started on any projects you’ve got cooking.
