IBPA is Honored to Represent Member Titles at the 2018 ALA Annual Conference

Let IBPA take your books to the 2018 American Library Association Annual Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana!

Over 10,000 librarians attend the ALA Annual Conference each year in order to save time and money by reviewing the books and services put on display by the hundreds of onsite vendors.

The focus of IBPA's participation in the ALA Annual Conference is to provide title visibility to acquisition librarians. IBPA members can purchase single-title display ($185/title) or full-shelf display ($725/shelf) in our Cooperative Booth at the ALA Annual Conference. Since IBPA has been attending the ALA Annual Conference for over 20 years, we have first pick of preferable space on the show floor. If you display with IBPA you won't be stuck in the back corner of the exhibit lot: you'll be up front and center where you belong.

In addition to onsite book display, those who sign up for single-title and full-shelf display and meet the submission deadline are added to our onsite book catalog, which includes book title, ISBN, price, cover art, company name, and website. There are many ways to gather exposure for your book(s) as part of IBPA’s Cooperative Booth. To help facilitate onsite marketing, all publishers displayed in IBPA’s Cooperative Booth will receive a FREE pass to the conference. While onsite you can participate in a book signing, attend an educational session, or simply mix-and-mingle with the librarians and vendors onsite.

DEDICATED BOOTH SPACE: For those IBPA members with larger collections, dedicated booth space can also be purchased. Because IBPA has been attending the ALA Annual Conference for over 20 years, dedicated booth space through IBPA -- either a full booth (10x10) or half booth (5x10) -- generally yields better placement on the exhibit floor. Members interested in renting dedicated booth space should contact IBPA chief operations officer Terry Nathan at or 310-546-1818.
