Invitation to Sponsor, Exhibit, or Advertise - 2016 ALLA Convention - Gadsden, AL
Convention Theme: Libraries: ImPOSSIBLE!
The 2016 ALLA Convention will be held April 12-15 in Gadsden, Alabama. There are many ways your company can help support the Association and participate in our Convention including exhibiting your products and services, sponsoring our events and advertising in ALLA's Convention Program (and new digital signage). With Libraries: ImPossible as our theme, we are calling this Convention the “UNconventional”! In particular, Gadsden does not have a large convention center. Instead, ALLA will be using many different venues located in Gadsden's beautiful downtown. As exhibitors we know how important visibility is to you. Therefore, we are creating two special events to highlight you and your company! Instead of placing you in a separate exhibitor's area away from all the Convention's main activities, your booth will be located in the same room with all the attendees ... where all the action is happening! This will give you direct access to every librarian and to all other professionals attending ALLA's Convention.
All exhibitors will be located at a facility known as "210 at the Tracks". This is a lovely facility in the middle of Gadsden's downtown. To ensure you get more "bang for your buck", we will be holding the Opening Keynote Address on Wednesday morning plus a special Wednesday evening "Author Expo" at 210 at the Tracks just for you! There will be approximately 6 hours between that time and our Wednesday evening Author event. We have a beautiful golf course nearby and a gorgeous natural park for you to enjoy during your break. We also encourage you to consider taking your clients to one of our delicious eateries located within walking distance from the 210 at the Tracks facility.
We are particularly excited about our new "Author Expo" ... a Wednesday evening author extravaganza hosted by you, our exhibitors. Of course the "Author Expo" will also feature door prizes, food, beverages and music. It will be a party no one will dare miss and another excellent opportunity for you to promote your business.
