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.

Interested in ROI and need more reasons to attend?  Please consult our 2013 Exhibitor Prospectus (PDF), which includes more demographic information about the group, as well as pricing, exhibit hours, traffic-building activities and a description of the booth amenities.  Pre- and post-show attendance lists will also be provided.  (The pre-show list will be emailed to registered exhibitors the week of September 9.) 

We invite your participation!
