As if flexing its own muscle, Texas bucked the sad 2011 trend in this uneasy economic climate by posting a steady budget in nearly 60% of its libraries during the past four years, while librarians in most other states are seeing their budgets get slashed. Texas is the no question king of all state library association, with an annual conference averaging over 7 thousand in attendance, and with the popular destination of Austin hosting the 2013 fair, the number will surely not waiver. 63% of attendees reportedly use the exhibits as an information gathering exercise for new products and Combined Book Exhibit represents a great way to get your information into the hands of this reputable group.

"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."
