ALA Annual Conference Dates: June 26-30, 2020
The American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference (scheduled for June 26-30, 2020 in Chicago, IL) is the premier event for libraries in the United States.
If you're displaying in IBPA's Cooperative Booth at the ALA Annual Conference (single-title or full-shelf), you may also sign-up for a demo table at the rate of $85 per 25-minute segment.
This option is for those who’d like to demonstrate their product in IBPA’s Cooperative Booth and/or sign and distribute free copies of their book to show attendees. The demo table is part of IBPA's Cooperative Booth. To offset the cost of the additional space, there is a small fee of $85 for each 25-minute segment. Five minutes are used for break-down / set-up between signing/demo.
The demo table space is carpeted and comes equipped with an easel, a 4' table, and 2 chairs. If you are doing an author signing, you will need to bring the books with you, or make other arrangements. We ask that you clean up at the end of your time and exit the booth promptly so you do not infringe on the next person's time.
If you have any questions, please contact Terry Nathan, IBPA's Chief Operations Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-546-1818. We're happy to help!
What is the ALA Annual Conference?
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 or full-shelf display in our Cooperative Booth at the ALA Annual Conference. For larger companies, full booth rental (10x10) opportunities are also available.
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.
After we receive your order we will send a confirmation email asking for more details. Please contact IBPA Chief Operations Officer Terry Nathan at email@example.com or 310-546-1818 with questions.
