Booksellers are invited to apply now for the 2020 BookExpo Bestsellers Grant Program, which is designed to make it possible for indie booksellers to experience and benefit from all that BookExpo has to offer. All bookstore members of the American Booksellers Association are eligible to apply, but applications are due March 14.
This year’s grant program offers the selected booksellers a complimentary three-night stay at The New Yorker, a Wyndham Hotel, and $150 in BookExpo Bucks, which can be used toward placing orders with any of the 100+ UnBound exhibitors at the show.
BookExpo will be held May 27–29 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.
Booksellers can register for BookExpo 2020 now. 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.
Booksellers can also book rooms at the New Yorker now; rooms are $195 per night, including taxes and fees.
