Navigate BEA with a Free App

BookExpo America kicks off in New York City next week, set inside the sprawling Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The free BEA mobile app can help you navigate through the show and get to your meetings on time.

Available for iOS, Android and the mobile web, the app includes an exhibitor list and a floor plan, as well as schedules for author events, signings and panel discussions. If you are in the BEA Digital Zone but you need to find your way to a keynote meeting room, you can use the app to map your location and give you directions. It’s like Google Maps for BEA.

You can also use the app to take notes about the show. There is also a handy “My Show” feature to save all of the events that you would like to attend into a personalized agenda.

If you download and login to the app by June 5th, you’ll be entered into a drawing for an iPad. Follow this link for details.
