By custom, PaLA's annual conference moves around state. Our goal is to rotate to regional locations - east, west and central - that will allow PaLA members to attend a conference closer to home on a reasonably regular basis. But a perfect regional rotation is nearly impossible to achieve since final decisions by the board of directors must weigh all important factors including cost, availability of dates, and size and attractiveness of any conference facility.
The conference schedule includes 75+ conference sessions, 36 poster sessions, a 2-day Library Products & Services Tradeshow, and numerous opportunities for informal networking.
The PaLA Conference is one of the best ways for library service and product suppliers to connect with the Pennsylvania library community. The concise exhibit schedule, with no-conflict time and traffic-building programs make for an exceptional return on your investment.
If your company already does business with libraries or would like to reach this market, you can’t afford to miss this show!
PaLA conference attendees search for products and services that will make them more productive in their libraries. Our attendees have indicated that they would like to see more of the following products (in no particular order):
Knowledge Sharing Platforms
Video Chatting Services
