MaryAnn F. KohlMaryAnn F. KohlPresident Bright Ring Publishing, Inc.
“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 ...

Letter from a School Librarian –
Dear Mr. Malinowski:
Last week I attended the NYLA conference in Saratoga Springs, NY. From time to time over my career I have gone to these conferences. I have always found that one of the most valuable parts of the conference is the time that I am able to spend at the Combined Book Exhibit. it is the one time when I get a chance to actually examine and review for myself new books. I can examine the photographs, the graphics. I can scan the index and table of contents and skim through the pages getting ...

Mr. Peter Birch The Combined Book Exhibit 277 White Street Buchanan, NY 10511 Dear Peter: I wanted to put into writing my comment to you at ALA this past summer. The Combined Book Exhibit was, for me and I am sure many others, still is one of the high points of the conference. I consistently spent more time perusing your exhibit than attending any of the individual programs. Keep up the good work.

Nothing can replace the experience of holding a book in your hand and looking through it at your own pace. It’s why we exhibit at conferences! When we can’t be at a conference in our own booth, Combined Book Exhibit allows us to display our books and get them into the hands of the teachers and librarians who make the purchasing decisions. They’re pros, and a pleasure to work with.

Marcia Lane PurcellMarcia Lane PurcellRandom House, Inc. Vice President, Director, Library and Academic Marketing
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 — ...

Virginia StanleyVirginia StanleyDirector Library Marketing HarperCollinsPublishers
Combined Book Exhibit has consistently provided the best exposure for our books at trade shows.
If we can’t attend a particular conference (or even if we can!) our books are well-represented by CBE.
Their exhibits are always impressive and attractive and their booth staff is knowledgeable, engaging and attentive to attendees.
We have been exhibiting through CBE for years because of their trusted reputation and the integrity of their work. In a nutshell: they care about customer satisfaction: the publishers, the authors and the librarians.
