There are almost 800 individual library branches in New York State, which is one of the most populous states in the union, so New York State is obviously ambitious in regards to libraries and the library community. . Each conference sees conversation and research inside the exhibit hall for how to best allocated the (reported) near $1.9 billion they spend on materials and resources. While this number is staggering, it has a lot of ground to cover, and a lot of the decisions on how it's covered are made at the annual trade show. The move to Niagara Falls for 2013 will serve a portion of the state that sometimes can’t make it to the usual venue of Saratoga Springs, but in NY, the conference is always good.

"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."
