From an American Book Show Announcement:
The U.S. Book Show is celebrating the success of its inaugural year. With 6,000 registrants, including nearly 1,000 members of the media, and 150+ exhibitors, Publishers Weekly, the virtual show’s producers, are pleased to announce the show will go forward next year, scheduled for May 24 – 26, 2022.
The producers anticipate hosting a hybrid show next year consisting of a mix of virtual and in-person programming, exhibits and networking. This year’s show, which ran from May 25 – 27, 2021, was virtual only and drew an international audience.
“The U.S. Book Show achieved its goal of reaching all quadrants of the publishing industry,” said Cevin Bryerman, CEO and publisher of Publishers Weekly. “The target market of booksellers, librarians and media, including book reviewers, were given an intimate, front-row seat to the big books of Fall 2021. It is that insider experience that we will optimize next year in serving the core publishing community.”
All content—speeches, industry and buzz panels, author panels and exhibit halls—are available for show attendees on-demand through August 31, 2021 at the U.S. Book Show digital platform. New registrants can sign up and access show content via the on-demand EventBrite page.
