Even through Random House, Inc. is very big, the staff of the Library Marketing Department is relatively small -- and our show budget is not unlimited -- so what to do about representation at those important state shows that we can't attend in person?? Combined Book Exhibit to the rescue!
For over 15 years Random House, Inc. has relied upon CBE to represent us at from 8 - 10 shows per year all around the country. Their staff is knowledgeable, conscientious, pleasant and they always get their attractive booth up right on time. No worries with CBE.
And two additional points -- when we do show up unexpectedly at one of these state shows, the CBE booth is a place to hang our hats, host an unexpected author, visit with collection development browsers.
So on behalf of all the Random House, Inc. imprints and our Client Publishers, thanks for a job very well done indeed!
