You are cordially invited to exhibit at the 2018 Association of Bookmobile & Outreach Services Annual Conference to be held October 17-19 at the Hilton North Raleigh Midtown in Raleigh, N.C.
ABOS members are professionals and support staff of public libraries who offer library services outside the walls of the library, such as bookmobiles, home delivery or early literacy programs. We have members from all across the United States and some international members as well. Our membership consists of approximately 55% managers, directors, and leaders who make purchases directly and 45% support staff, many of whom influence purchasing decisions at their library. Annual conferences draw approximately 250 people. We have a variety of sponsorship and visibility options for you this year. We recognize the importance of the Vendors and their participation to make our conference a success and we greatly appreciate your support of ABOS.
Exhibits will open at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday October 16 2018 following the opening ceremony and Vendor Q&A. All vendors will be eligible to participate in the Vendor Q&A.
