Maximizing Success at the SIBA Discovery Show: Make Your Social Network Connections Early!

Posted By Linda-Marie Barrett, Tuesday, May 7, 2019

If you’re planning to exhibit at the upcoming SIBA Discovery Show, there are many ways you can make the most of opportunities the show provides to connect with booksellers. Set things in motion by making your social network connections early. Here’s a list of SIBA member Bookstores.  Go on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter, get to know them and like them. Say nice things about them and let them know you’ll be at the SIBA Discovery Show. This is such a great way to introduce yourself and maybe even set up an account in advance of the Show. Let them know you look forward to meeting or seeing them again.

Maximizing Success at the SIBA Discovery Show!, Tip# 4: Create a Stand-Out Directory Listing

Posted By Linda-Marie Barrett, Friday, April 26, 2019

Your table reservation includes a 50-word listing for the print and online show directory. Attendees use the directory to prioritize their time on the show floor, so it's very worth taking your time to craft a stand-out listing. You don't need to include info they can find on Google, you need to provide information that will get booksellers to come by your booth. Highlight your author booth signings, show specials, prize giveaways, or perhaps a chance to learn a magic trick or receive a tarot reading. Be creative and get your message out there.

Need more than 50 words or want to place an ad highlighting award-winning titles, an event you're sponsoring at the show, or a very special happening at your booth? Check out our exhibitor tradeshow package  or contact for options.
