The WBRA organizes two annual book fairs for booksellers, librarians, trade, and gift retailers.
Note that our Book Fairs have been moved online temporarily. Check back here for details on our 2021 events.
The spring book fair is in February, and the summer book fair in June. All of our customers are welcome to attend.
There is an open exhibit area where you can view samples and collect the latest catalogues and reader copies from publishers.
We encourage buyers and retailers to book appointments with the reps so you can get a personalized presentation of the coming season’s hot new titles and trends. Also you can take advantage of the book fair specials offered by the publishers.
At each book fair there is a social events which allows the reps to socialise with their accounts, and booksellers to meet others in the trade.
In recent fairs we have had two author receptions. We have a keynote author saying a few words about his/her current work, and we invite other authors and local publishing houses to mix and mingle with reps, booksellers and other publishers in the industry. The perfect way to unwind over a cocktail and appys!
