Reed Exhibitions, parent company of BookExpo America, is in discussion with the American Library Association (ALA) about taking over the organization's two main meetings--the June annual convention and the January midwinter meeting.
The process is far enough along that Reed has talked to a number of the major trade houses about the prospect and about the idea of combining Book Expo America (BEA) with the ALA annual meeting. This is raising concerns as the two shows are quite different - BEA is focused on booksellers, the media and, increasingly, the general public; whereas ALA features hundreds of educational meetings for librarians, and many of the exhibitors are vendors who specialize in the library market.
