So... we're looking at Spencer Hill Press's presence at BEA (Book Expo America, in NYC in May) and thinking of upgrading to a booth.

Okay, so maybe just half a booth. In the cheap section.

But it's a booth. At BEA. Frikkin' BEA!

And I'm thinking about how we could use this to make a splash.

Party? SWAG cannons? Zener card games?

Help me out here, people.  If you were at BEA, what would catch your interest?

Hmm... maybe I should bring a coffeemaker.  And coffee, too.  Otherwise, it's just a tease.

Happy New Year!

UPDATE: Food, SWAG, and free books: sounds good.  Speaking of free books, check out the Born at Midnight giveaway on Blkosiner's Book Blog:

FOOD. People will always stop for food! Bring a huge candy dish and put candy in it - believe me, I have been to many work related conferences and its always the treats that make people stop!

Hi kimysworld,

Thanks for the suggestion!

Mmmm... candy.

This may sound minor, but BOOKMARKS. Nice little bookmarks printed with your books and such. There can never be enough bookmarks.

My dad went to a real estate conference. He had a keg and some wine varieties at his booth. Needless to say, it was by far the most popular booth. Hahaha.

I'm going to try to make it out to BEA if I can find a partner in crime to go with me so hopefully I'll see ya there!

I agree with food as a draw. If there's time, you can go to Zabar's and get cookies. Their rugelach is amazing -- a definite draw!

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! I probably can't serve alcohol without incurring the wrath of the NYPD (although a wine and cheese party would be SO cool! *sigh*), but Zabar's has a lot of potential. I have a friend who sends their gift boxes to us each year. Yum!

Looksie, please come find us at BEA--we'll have ARCs for you, as well as SWAG!

I cannot wait to go to BEA, Kate! All of the bookmarks, food, coffee and books sound great. It's going to be a blast!

See you there, Cindy!
