Who We Are

The American Collective Stand®, in conjunction with its sister company, The Combined Book Exhibit®, has been serving the domestic and International markets since 1933.

Both ACS and CBE are collectives of individual publishing, packaging, printing, trade association, and distribution companies working in tandem to maximize their presence at U.S. and International trade fairs. ACS attends the Frankfurt Book Fair, London Book Fair and Beijing Book Fair. CBE attends over 25 U.S. library, education and book trade conferences each year. Please visit CBE's web site at

ACS offers fully furnished turnkey stands (booths) that take all the worries and risks out of exhibiting overseas. We help participating companies to develop trading partners for the purpose of buying/selling rights or assist in finding foreign distribution. Our service allows company representatives to maximize their time spent at the Fair to concentrate on business matters rather than dealing with Fair service providers. Making sure you meet your appointments is more important than dealing with customs officials or shipping brokers.

We also offer our participants a "Business Services Center" within the Collective itself. On-site, we have staff members available to direct potential customers to you, take messages for you in the event you are away from the stand or are in a meeting. Also included in the Center are telephones, fax machine, computers/monitors with Internet access, printers and help with translation if needed. All this so you can be in constant communications with your office and/or customers. The combination of all these services allows companies to maximize their expenses in terms of overall costs and personnel.
