BEA: Should it be re-named the New York Book Fair?

06.08.2012, Uncategorized, by .

The Bopk Expo America (BEA) ended today in New York City. I have been going to the national book convention on and off for the past 20 years.

My first BEA was in New York CIty. I was an Assistant Buyer for Waldenbooks. It was called the ABA then. This was before it was sold.

I have attended conferences in Miami Beach; Anaheim; Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC and New York City. I never made it to Las Vegas or any of the other cities. I don’t think. For the past few years it has stayed in New York City.

All the other major book conventions are labeled by the cities they inhabit.

I am not suggeting a name change but it would make it consistent with it’s peers?
