BookExpo America (BEA) is the largest annual book trade fair in the United States. Nearly all significant book publishers in the United States, and many from abroad, have booths and exhibits at BEA, and use the fair as an opportunity to showcase upcoming titles, sell current books, socialize with colleagues from other publishing houses, and sell and buy subsidiary rights and international rights. Authors, librarians, and buyers for book retailers also attend the event. DigiCon from the International Digital Publishing Forum runs concurrently with BEA.
Registration is limited to retailers, publishers, authors, bloggers and others who work in the publishing business. However, an Autographing Area featuring well-known authors and celebrities is open to the public. Free tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Paid reader passes providing priority access to the Autographing Area are also available. See the website for details.
