What is U.S. Book Show?

In its fourth year, the U.S. Book show is an in-person conference for publishing professionals. The conference will feature rich panels and discussions around issues impacting the industry.

What will the in-person experience be?

Attendees will enjoy live presentations and panels from thought-leaders, authors and keynote speakers with a closing keynote reception.

Will lunch be included?

Lunch is not included, however, a list of recommended eateries within walking distance of the venue is available here.

Do the attendees select who to listen to and when, or do the attendees sit in an auditorium for the day and just listen to the presenter on the stage?

Two tracks will run simultaneously in separate rooms. Attendees can move between the two tracks as they wish to customize their listening and learning experience.

Will I be able to see who’s attending the event on the show website?

Sponsors will be listed on the website on the Sponsor page. Individual registrants will not be listed on the website. However, registrants were given the option to share their contact information with attendees of the event when they registered. Publishers Weekly will share the attendee list with all who opted in approximately four weeks ahead of the conference and once again the week prior.

Can editors/publishers make appointments to meet with the agents during the AALA programing on Tuesday at the in-person event, even if they are not members of AALA?

Yes! We encourage you to make appointments and network with others ahead of and during the conference.
