Who We Are

The American Collective Stand®, in conjunction with its sister company, The Combined Book Exhibit®, has been serving the domestic markets since 1933 and International markets since 1975.

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 London Book Fair, Bologna Book Fair, Beijing Book Fair, Frankfurt Book Fair and Guadalajara Book Fair. CBE attends over 20 U.S. library, education and International book trade fairs and conferences each year. Please visit CBE’s web site at https://www.combinedbook.com/

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 making appointments and business rather than dealing with fair logistics.

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 computers/monitors with Internet access, printers and help with translation if needed.

All this so you can concentrate on your book fair business while allowing your company to maximize expenses and personnel.
