The Annual NLA/NSLA Conference is coming October 14th-16th, at the Cornhusker Marriott in Lincoln, NE. The Conference Planning Committee is once again anticipating a varied program that will include a number of social events during which exhibitors can network with librarians and other library media professionals. We will also provide uninterrupted time in the program for you to mingle with the attendees.
Space is limited this year; as a result registration is strictly on a first-come, first-serve basis, NLA/NSLA consistently sells out their conference exhibitor space. All exhibit space is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis and NLA/NSLA reserves the right to limit and/or refuse exhibitor applications.
Exhibitors can begin setting up Wednesday, October 14th after 12:00 p.m. Exhibits will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 15th, with an Exhibitor’s Reception from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. On Friday, October 16th, exhibits will be open from 8:00 a.m. to Noon.
Exhibitors are required to stay until Noon on Friday with a complete display. Exhibitors leaving early or not attending the Exhibitors’ reception will not receive priority registration next year.
Pricing for Commercial Vendors is $450 before June 1st, $500 from June-Aug 1st, and $600 until Sept. 1st. Registration is closed Sept. 1st.
Non-Profit Vendors are $75 before June 1st, $100 from June-Aug 1st and $150 until Sept. 1st. Registration is closed Sept. 1st.
There is a $35 charge for electrical hook-ups and a charge of $200 for a wired shared Ethernet connection. Pipe, drape, signage, carpet, tables and chairs are included in the registration fee. The site is equipped with free wireless Internet, however neither NLA/NSLA nor the Cornhusker Marriot make any guarantee as to the amount of bandwidth availability during conference.
All exhibitor registration will take again place online this year, and the application can be found on the conference website. We will be adding more information to this website, such as shipping, additional A/V and programming, as it becomes available.
Library professionals from throughout Nebraska look forward to the annual conference. Now is the time to make acquaintances and meet with professionals from school, academic, special, and public libraries. We hope you will join us and make 2012 the best conference ever.
Many exciting opportunities for company sponsorship or advertising are also available. If you or your company would like to be a corporate sponsor or would like to advertise in the conference program, please contact the Conference Director atNLAExecutiveDirector@gmail.com
