The Pennsylvania Library Association has always been a show where our exhibit is heavily trafficked. The state ranks high in funding for public libraries in the US. This association invites librarians not only from public libraries but also from academic institutions. Our entire collection of titles is heavily reviewed showing the broad interests and needs of the attendees. Numerous attendees have been found in our exhibit for well over one hour going through all the books on display.
Librarians make a point to stop at our booth, pick up our exhibit catalog and review the titles on display. Some take two or three catalogs so they can bring extras back home to give to fellow librarians who could not attend that year. An active show with librarians showing strong support for the exhibits.
PALA is a show that’s attendance varies based on location, so Harrisburg, being the states capital and being very centrally located is a great location promising great attendance.
Exhibit and catalog are organized by Dewey Decimal Category.

"As a small publisher I thank my lucky stars for the exhibition service CBE provides. My personal representative keeps tabs on what is needed, and reminding me when I forget and advising me when I am too busy to read their fliers. Most important, my rep at CBE has always been open and honest about which shows will benefit me most. If I could hire a personal staff of book exhibitors to work for Bright Ring, I would hire CBE. My library sales have risen markedly since employing their exhibit service, and I will continue to use them for all my new titles."
