    Reach Beyond Your Booth

    PaLA is committed to helping library suppliers reach customers in the Pennsylvania library community.  In addition to exhibit space, we offer several other ways to connect and increase your visibility with this important group of potential customers.

    Showcase Presentations are available exclusively for exhibitors to present a brief program to highlight a product or service to a larger audience than would be possible from their exhibit booth.  What’s more, your showcase presentation may qualify for continuing education credits for those attending your session – a definite draw that should increase attendance and exposure to your product!  PaLA will provide an announcement of the showcase session in the conference program book, the space and equipment -- you showcase your product to a group of potential buyers! 
    The cost for one 25-minute presentation period is just $250.
    (Available to registered exhibitors only.)
