Reed Exhibitions has set the new dates for the 2015 edition of BookExpo America and BookCon. While Reed originally considered overlapping the two events on Saturday, as was the case in 2014, executives have decided to make BEA and BookCon separate shows.
BEA will run from Wednesday, May 27 through Friday, May 29. BookCon will be held Saturday and Sunday, May 30 and 31. Both shows will be held at the Javits Center.
The BEA show floor will open at 1 p.m. on the 27th; it will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, and from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday. BookCon will run from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, and from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
More details on what these changes mean for exhibitors, as well as attendees, will be released by Reed in early December.
