Reach The Decision Makers, A National Audience
By its nature, the ALA Annual Conference attracts librarians from all levels of management, from all type of libraries from across the country. It serves as a meeting place for leadership, a place to learn, a place to network and as a forum to exchange ideas on the multitude of issues affecting libraries. The event attracts over 20,000 attendees who come prepared to make decisions. In addition to the programs presented by today's leading library authorities, the exhibit floor is considered an integral part of the educational process of the Annual Conference.

Through its 66,000 members, the ALA serves as a resource for the public, academic, private and school libraries; is responsible for accreditation of library school programs; and acts as a major advocate for literacy, intellectual freedom and the preservation of library materials. Here are the four bottom line reasons to exhibit:

Over 900 vendors participate in this unmatched exhibit of books, automation, video, furnishings,
audio and on-line services and networks.

Year after year, exhibit space sells out and more than 50% of the exhibitors have participated
for more than 20 years.

As the oldest and largest exhibit dedicated to the library market, the ALA Annual Conference
is recognized as the #1 source for the best and latest on products and services.

The ALA Annual Conference is the most cost-effective way for you to meet face-to-face with so
many qualified library decision-makers. You'll develop solid new business leads while building
on existing relationships. No other marketing investment offers so much!

Don't miss this opportunity to meet with more prospects than any other trade show for the library marketplace.
