Quality onsite and virtual exhibit services for book publishers.
At ABE, book exhibits are more than just a job; they're a way of life. As a family-owned business established in the mid-1960s and managed by the third generation, we've successfully managed over 2,500 exhibits. Few can claim a longer tenure in this field, and we humbly believe that none do it better. We guarantee your satisfaction with every exhibit, promising to rectify any issues.
With the closure of bookstores and libraries at an alarming rate and the shift of published material commerce to the internet, we're losing a vital part of the book acquisition process - the "Hands-on Browsing Experience".
As book exhibitors and marketers, it's easy to overlook this crucial aspect. ABE is a familiar name to many of our audience members who see our titles on display. The majority of meetings on our schedule have been recurring for years, even decades in some cases. An ABE exhibit allows potential customers to see, discuss, ponder, and most importantly, physically interact with all the displayed titles.
While it's difficult to assign an exact monetary value to it, the "Hands-on Browsing Experience" is undeniably significant. This added value feature comes as part of the package every time you exhibit with ABE.
The representation you want at the lowest possible price.
Significantly lower per title costs are charged to publishers with a larger number of titles. Customized "Publisher Showcase" options are available. Periodicals and promotional literature can also be contracted for distribution at affordable rates.
