Demo/Book Signing

For those who’d like to demonstrate their product in IBPA’s Cooperative Booth and/or sign and distribute free copies of their book to show attendees, IBPA has taken additional space in which to accommodate this. To offset the cost of the space, there is a small fee of $75 per half-hour. Deluxe option available, which includes shipping to the show and an ad in the ALA Show Daily.

Postcards and/or Bookmarks

Over the years, exhibiting members have requested to include postcards or bookmarks along with their titles. We listened and are happy to report we can now accommodate this. IBPA has secured an extra table for display of postcards (4×6) and bookmarks (2×6 or 2.5×7) during the 2017 ALA Annual Conference. The cost is $25 per set of 50. Please note: sizes cannot exceed those listed.
