Show dates for Nat Geo Books

Come see our books at one of these industry trade shows.

We’re packing our bags and shipping our boxes.

It’s finally spring, which means it’s also trade show season! Many of our sales, marketing, and editorial staff travel to these shows to exhibit National Geographic books, talk with readers and librarians, and meet with partners.

Join us! Below are the shows we will be attending. If you are planning to be at any of these, please stop by our booth or reach out to our sales team to set up a meeting.
