2013 Conference Exhibitor Information
Exhibiting at the PaLA Conference provides the best opportunity to reach decision-makers in the Pennsylvania library community. If your company already does business with Pennsylvania libraries, or would like to reach this market, you can't afford to miss this show!
The 2013 conference, PA Libraries: Architects of Change, will take place October 20 - 23, 2013 (exhibit days October 21 & 22) at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, a beautiful venue in the Pennsylvania Laurel Highlands. The conference typically draws 600 - 700 librarians from across the state who attend this annual event to learn, network and recharge. Attendance is roughly 70% public librarians, 21% academic librarians, with the balance of attendees representing government, school, law and medical libraries.
