Reach 1,300 Librarians from California…

Exhibit at 2018 California Library Association Annual Conference

Attendance at the California Library Association (CLA) Annual Conference continues to grow.  Approximately 1,300 librarians attended the 2017 CLA Annual Conference this past November.

With the explosive population growth in the last decade in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley, we anticipate even stronger attendance at CLA 2018.

If you’re trying to reach librarians in California, there’s not a more efficient, cost-effective way to reach them, than by exhibiting at the 2018 CLA Annual Conference.

Save up to $250 on a 10’x10’ exhibit space by sending in your exhibit application and payment in full by May 24, 2018.  See the following links for details:
