New York has welcomed publishing sector professionals from the world over who have travelled to visit the most important book event in America, the Book Expo America (BEA). Publishers, writers, educators, book sellers and other professionals find that it is the ideal place to establish contacts and, particularly, to see where the book market is and where it is going. We didn’t want to miss it, so a Semantix delegation has been visiting the BEA.
Book Expo America is a showcase for what is new, what is next, the latest trends, new titles, new authors and what technology has to offer for the publishing sector or, in other words, everything related to books. The exhibition has a digital area called “Digital Discovery Zone”, which focuses on new developments for a new age of reading, the age of digital books.
The show is supplemented with different sessions and talks, most of them focusing this year on discovering new publishing ideas and practical solutions for education.
