Booksellers can now register for BookExpo 2019. The annual trade show, which will feature a variety of programming for American Booksellers Association members, will be held from Wednesday, May 29, through Friday, May 31, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.
To receive a free badge to the show, booksellers at ABA member stores will need to provide an ABA member number during the BookExpo registration process. Booksellers who don’t know their ABA member ID number should send a request with their name, title, and store name to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (800) 637-0037, ext. 7536.
Thanks to a significant financial commitment from Reed Exhibitions, ABA member booksellers can reserve rooms at the 2019 Hotel ABA — The New Yorker, a Wyndham Hotel — at a rate of $200 per night, including all taxes and fees. The ABA member hotel rate is available for the nights of Sunday, May 26, through Monday, June 3, 2019; however, the room block is limited and reservations will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
The New Yorker Hotel is located at 481 Eighth Avenue in New York City, between 34th and 35th Street. To access Hotel ABA reservation information, booksellers will need a BookWeb username and password (e-mail email@example.com for login details). The deadline for the rate is March 26, 2019, or when the block sells out, whichever comes first.
