The BEA will be the first of it's kind in Australia in the last 20 years, with authors and publishers attending the event in Sydney, Australia August 30th and 31st. The BEA is an expo for promoting Australian Publishers and Authors to readers. A great day out for families who love to read. Sydney Showground in August 2014.

Book Expo Australia (BE Aus – pronounced as B Oz) is where the avid reader comes to meet known and favourite authors and find new and emerging authors. Their creative offerings will encompass all genres, crime, fantasy, urban fantasy, chick lit, thriller-action, contemporary, children’s, YA and all other genres. Non-fiction will be covered across all interests; business, fitness, self help, craft cookery, military history, poetry, travel and biography. Plus, eBooks, audio books, graphic novels and comics and more will all have a place at the expo. If it can be written, it will be at BE Oz
