Dear NJLA Vendor, 

On behalf of the New Jersey Library Association, I invite you and your organization to join us at the NJLA Annual Conference on April 25 and 26, 2017.  We will be returning this year to New Jersey’s premier new venue in Atlantic City, the fabulous Harrah’s Convention Center. The theme for the 2017 conference is “Beyond the Box” and we are developing an exciting and out-of-the-ordinary program of events and workshops that will draw nearly 1,000 attendees. 

If you missed us last year, we are excited to share that this amazing venue allows for larger 8'x10' booths, a premium central location and a beautiful ballroom atmosphere. Our members and past vendors loved the space and amenities and we are sure you will too. 

The Conference Committee and other members of NJLA are working hard to make this year’s conference experience an even better one for everyone, including you as vendors, exhibitors, and sponsors. Our association relies on the partnerships that we have with our vendors, and our members rely on networking with quality suppliers for the goods and services we need to run the many libraries throughout New Jersey. 

I hope that you will join us and help to make the 2017 Annual Conference one of the best ever!

 --Chris Carbone,
 President of the New Jersey Library Association

“As the NJ representative of World Book, I have attended the NJLA conference for over 10 years. The conference gives my colleagues and me an opportunity to meet and talk not only with public librarians, but also librarians from schools and academic institutions. It is professionally run by the librarians themselves, and they keep the vendors in mind by scheduling events in the exhibit hall for exclusive times with the vendors. It is a worthwhile show for my company.” -- Judy Ashcraft, World Book
