The Combined Book Exhibit displays your book at various exhibits in book fairs across the globe and in front of thousands of book buyers, librarians, and agents.
The International Show Exhibit is for authors bent on a global following. This CBE package is perfect for authors who have published in a foreign language, as well as English-published authors from countries outside the United States. The International Show Exhibit includes a place for your book in the show, as well as a full-page ad in the CBE Exhibit Catalogue and inclusion in a comprehensive online database where interested parties can buy your book. Balboa Press will also send out a press release to targeted online media sources to give your book maximum publicity.

How It Works
Balboa Press will create an original and compelling press release to generate media attention and direct reader’s attention to your upcoming exhibit. The release will be broadcast to media outlets and to thousands of interested parties via the newswire.
At the show of your choice, your book will be assigned a number, either based on its Dewey Decimal subject category at library shows or based on where it lies alphabetically by publisher at international venues.
Your book's entry in the exhibit catalog includes the title, your name as the author (as well as illustrator and/or editor where applicable), year of publication, price, ISBN, a 25-word description (feel free to write your own or our professional copywriters can do it for you), and citations of awards and/or honors received.
We will design a full-page black-and-white advertisement of your book for the exhibitor catalog, which we will send to you for your approval.
Balboa Press' information is also gathered and included in the catalog as part of the publisher directory, where all pertinent contact and distribution information is included.
This information is also available online in a live searchable database and archived for up to one year.
Your book will be displayed along with other Balboa Press titles in a prime position on the exhibit floor.
Your book will be displayed face-out on the shelf.
A sticker bearing a unique QR code will be placed on the lower left hand side of the cover of the books that will be displayed. Book fair attendees can then scan the code using the CBE Book Fair Buddy app to learn more about your book. Using the app, they can add your book to their to-be-read list, share that with friends, family, or on their social media pages and even get connected to a variety of reseller sites where they can purchase your book.
Official report and PDF of the exhibit catalog can also be found online for up to one year after the event.
