So: is anyone going? What hotel is the designated hotel for librarians? Does anyone have any experience of the BEA? If we're hanging out at our publisher's booth should we expect to see 500 people a day or 5000?
Also to the point for us: what kind of information/handouts are most usable to library folk going to the BEA? Newsletters? Postcards with book covers and ISBNs? Quotes cards and book reviews? A list of mentions from PW and Locus? Are bookmarks silly? Since this will be our first "big deal" event outside of science fiction (and also the first for our publisher, I think) any input is useful and might be translated into objects-de-handout.
And oh yeah... just in case this *does* happen, anyone know a good dim sum place near the Javits center?
