Book Expo America Teams Up with Edelweiss for Digital BEA Catalog

Edelweiss, the digital catalog provider owned by Above the Treeline and which debuted at last year’s Book Expo America (BEA) has announced a new partnership with BEA to create “Books@BEA,” a digital catalog of all the books on exhibition at the conference.

In a release, Steve Rosato, Event Director for BEA, said, “We’re thrilled to debut Books@BEA because it’s yet another added value to both attendees and exhibitors and demonstrates BEA’s commitment to keeping pace with the evolution of the industry.”

Participation in the catalog is open to all publishers exhibiting their books at the show, but excludes backlist titles. The catalog will also be free to readers, who will have to register to see it.

This year’s BEA will be held at the Javits Center in New York City on May 25-27, 2010. Publishers interested in participating in Books@BEA can contact Mike Carlucci at
