Tomorrow, BookExpo America begins and runs through June 3 in New York City. This event brings the major players and aspiring players in the publishing industry together to swap notes and network. Unfortunatley, I'm not able to attend this year, but I will be keeping up with events at the BookExpo America website. BEA Director, Lance Fensterman will also be blogging the event. Take a look around the site. There is a social networking section for attendees and exhibitors, where you can pickup useful information. Remember, taking a quick self-tour of the site will help give you an idea of what major publishers, distributors and book sellers are thinking; you'll get a feel for the trends of the publishing industry. They've done a great job of making the website the next best thing to being there.
