BookExpo Publishing Shift

BookExpo Publishing Shift

by Jun 30, 2017Programs and Events, Publishing Industry

BookExpo?was once a group of traditional publishers with a sprinkling of indies. As an expo attendee from 2008?2017, my observation of traditional publishing is stagnant content published with a 1950s business model. A new world of publishing has evolved due to the contagious enthusiasm of indie business models.

Indie publishers not only bring new and original content, but publish it well. This has created a shift within hybrid to self-publishing businesses, offering authors once unattainable reviews, awards, and national marketing opportunities.

In 2017 BookExpo changed their name and limited indie inclusion. The expo suffered in size and attendance.?Ingram Content Group?is now one of the largest BookExpo exhibitors, offering workshops at BookExpo like ?How To DIY Publish.? Robin Cutler, an upcoming?FAPA Annual Conference?speaker, participates in Ingram?s growth and is a resource in FAPA?s vision for members? success.
