The American Library Association (ALA) hold an annual business meeting known as the ALA Midwinter Meeting. Generally held in January, the conference draws more than 8,000 leaders in the library and information industry for some 2,500 meetings and events. Hundreds of exhibits feature the latest in books, videos, computers and other materials available to today's libraries and their users.
With hundreds of exhibiting organizations and stages featuring the hottest authors, and numerous related fun events, the exhibit floor is an integral part of your learning, professional development, and networking that takes place at the Midwinter Meeting. The Exhibit Hall offers you the opportunity to explore and discuss with expert vendors the breadth and depth of new and favorite library products, services, books, online services, tools, and technologies.
By its very nature, the American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting attracts a focused group of top library professionals from across the country and across all facets of librarianship and information technology. No longer just a business meeting of the Association, the Midwinter Meeting has been redesigned to include programs and special events focused on the conversation of librarianship. The Midwinter Meeting has quickly become the place where librarians from across the country discuss and explore the future of libraries and librarianship. They are searching for new ways to deliver service and keep their libraries as a focal point of the
communities they serve. Over 8,000 librarians are expected to register; the statistics speak for themselves; these are the decision makers you need to meet.
