Visit Kobo at BEA

BookExpo America is right around the corner. This year, as an added convenience, Kobo representatives will be stationed in the ABA Indie Bookseller Lounge (Space #214, at the front of the “200” aisle on the BookExpo America show floor).

Visit team Kobo and discuss the addition of magazines, an improved Kids’ department, and new marketing materials.

Booksellers at IndieCommerce stores or anyone who is interested in learning more about the platform can sign up for a one-on-one appointment or register for one of the Drupal 7 upgrade sessions in the lounge.
