Few venues exemplify the adage "quality of quantity" quite like the Pennsylvania School Library Association--especially when they hold their annual conference in the popular venue in Hershey, PA. While the thousand-member association might not be the largest, their annual show's attendees (which averages about 750 each year in Hershey) spend more time going through the exhibits, and specifically the Combined Book Exhibit's bookcases, than any other. It's not uncommon for a single librarian to spend over an hour at a time going through the Combined Book Exhibit collection book by book, and it's rare for there to be any catalogs leftover at the end of the show. To guarantee effective marketing, PSLA is a great venue!

"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."
