Today let’s talk about conferences for every part of the process for writing a book and publishing a book.
For many interested in the book publishing industry, conferences are some of the best ways to keep up with the changes occurring in this field, get the latest inside information about new technologies and new upcoming publications, and keep in contact with existing colleagues and meet new ones.
Whether you are an author or a writer who is writing a book or an industry professional involved in some way with publishing a book, industry conferences are the place to be to leverage your time, money and effort to catch up with everything to do with books.
This week, Book Expo America captures the attention of various facets of the industry including myriad conferences to bring together the variety of professionals who will descend on New York City to discuss books from every perspective.
From publishing and self-publishing a book to publishers, librarians and booksellers to hearing from the authors themselves, the halls of the Jacob Javits Center will be buzzing with everything having to do with books. For the first time this year, BEA will open its doors to the reading public and welcome consumers in to experience the book publishing industry on display.
When you build a career in any industry, it is important to get into the thick of things and learn as much as you can about the business activities involved so you can become more of an insider as opposed to just a spectator.
As writers, conferences such as Book Expo America and others that run parallel to this larger industry event this week allow massive opportunities for professionals to meet with other professionals and for those new to the industry to get immersed in it in just a few days.
If you are planning to head to New York City this week, keep your eyes and ears open as there are many events occurring inside the halls of the Jacob Javits Center and outside all around town.
It is this penchant for books that continues to prove that you can use your book as your hook to increase and enhance your larger platform for your ideas, business and career. You can also build a career helping others to do this as an industry professional in whichever ways you find the most inspiring and fun.
I look forward to seeing you there!
