The organizers of BookExpo America have announced that the show will continue in New York City on an annual basis at least through 2011. Previous plans for returning to Washington DC in 2010 and Las Vegas in 2011 have been canceled in favor of staying close to mainstream publishing business and the media located in New York.
Starting in 2010, the convention floor will open for two days only instead of three. A day of conferences, special events and a show preview the day before the show floor opens will continue to be held. The new dates for BEA are May 25 to 27 for 2010, May 24 to 26 for 2011, and May 30 to June 1 for 2012.
