How It Works

How Publisher Spotlight Works

Here’s how it works. We strategize with you in advance of the conference to find out your key titles and objectives. The social media is launched pre-conference with an eblast to past attendees and continues with Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest throughout the conference.

The display is sold by the cube with a three-cube minimum (two cubes and a top) so that you have appropriate branding. We work with you to learn your books so that we can match attendees to the books that meet their needs and interests. Promotional giveaways ensure a lively space. Knowledgeable staff ensure your books are represented professionally and enthusiastically. After the conference, we give you the qualified leads and a detailed conference report.

Contact us for a price sheet for forthcoming conferences at or to set up a time to talk about the possibilities.

“I celebrate books from small presses whenever I have the opportunity and whenever I make a personal connection with the story or storyteller. Some of the small presses I am particularly fond of include Flying Eye/ Nobrow, Chin Music Press Inc, Little Bee, Peter Pauper Press, Inhabit Media, Tilbury House, Floris Books, Toon Books, Gecko Press, Pajama Press, Child’s Play, and Tiger Tales. Since meeting the folks who run Publisher Spotlight a few years ago at ALA I have not only become well-acquainted with smaller presses, but have also learned about specialty presses that have helped me bring a greater representation of diversity to the books that I read and those that I share via my podcast and as part of our collective on All The Wonders. Publisher Spotlight is so important for offering the opportunity for those small presses to be represented at big conferences.”—Matthew Winner, All the Wonders podcast
