#IPNEatNEIBA - SECTION G3, Tables 1&2

Who do we love? Independent bookstores - and they love us! New England is a hotbed of indie bookstores, and they're experiencing a revival, thanks in part to the efforts of the bookseller members and staff of NEIBA. Come and be a part of it!

By exhibiting with IPNE, your titles are presented an estimated 1,000 actively interested individual booksellers, 250 independent bookstores, and hundreds of top buyers, editors, authors, and industry insiders at the largest regional show of its kind in the U.S.

Best of all, IPNE exhibitors get live, informed representation by IPNE officers and members with local-market knowledge. We know many of these booksellers and engage with them throughout the year. 

Please scroll down to read new Event Guidelines and expect followup emails with exhibit details.
