The American Library Association’s Annual Conference continues to deliver the content that provides value to attendees from across the country and across the industry. Whether learning in meeting rooms or on the exhibit floor, attendees come to the Annual Conference because they know it delivers the biggest return for their investment. With a wide range of activities, the exhibit floor has become a great place for attendees to search for new products, explore upcoming titles, hear interesting speakers, meet emerging authors and examine peer poster presentations.

Small Press / Product Table

A low-cost exhibit option. Small Press Tables are $1,100.

Authors, new publications and technologies often are introduced to the library market by smaller start-up companies. In order to give these companies access to the vital market they seek, ALA has designated a special display option for these companies. If your organization is developing new products and services, this is a low-cost opportunity to introduce yourself the library market.

These exhibitors are supplied many standard benefits as in other areas of the exhibition, but are limited in the method in which they may utilize their display space. Learn More
