Staffed displays at trade shows around the world

Have you ever wanted to display your books before thousands of people at BEA, ALA or Frankfurt, but didn’t want to spend thousands of dollars to do it? We have reached an agreement with The Combined Book Exhibit® (CBE) to display APSS members’ book(s) at major state, regional, national and international shows for one low flat fee per show. 

CBE displays your book(s) with those of other authors and publishers at shows with heavy traffic. CBE also creates a catalog for each show it attends, and keeps a comprehensive database on its website with your contact information for an entire year. 

See how much money you can save by having CBE exhibit at major shows by visiting http://tinyurl.com/b8tk5t5 Register with your APSS membership number (insert it at APSS ORDER NUMBER).
