Autographing Program

BookExpo boasts the largest Autographing program in the United States. Authors come face-to-face with booksellers, librarians and other high value trade attendees to make a personal impression that creates excitement around their new book. 
Participate in Book Expo’s Autographing program in two ways:

  • Book a signing in the BookExpo Autographing area - the best place to launch a title and gain massive exposure through BookExpo’s extensive marketing campaign.
  • Host an In-Booth signing – you host and execute the signing in your booth and benefit from BookExpo’s marketing reach with listings in all the places attendees get their information.

To ensure your author meets as many attendees as possible book sessions in the Autographing area and your booth!

For Exhibitors and Publishers interested in participating please contact Beth Oliveras, Autographing Program Director at
