How It Works:

  • At each show, your book will be assigned a number, either based on its Dewey Decimal subject category at library shows, or based on where it lies alphabetically by publisher at international venues.
  • Your book will be displayed along with other titles in a prime position on the exhibit floor.
  • Your book will be displayed face-out on the shelf.
  • A sticker bearing a unique QR code will be placed on the lower left hand side of the cover of the books that will be displayed. Book fair attendees can then scan the code using the CBE Book Fair Buddy app to learn more about your book. Using the app, they can add your book to their to-be-read list, share that with friends, family, or on their social media pages and even get connected to a variety of reseller sites where they can purchase your book.

*The following shows are biennial—occurring once every two years. Depending on when you purchase the service, your book will be registered to the next available show.

Please note that the event organizers may change the schedule and book exhibit format (virtual, physical, or a combination of both) without prior notice. Please contact iUniverse to confirm dates for you.
