ABA Seeks Bookseller Innovators for Winter Institute Session

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

As part of planning for the 15th annual Winter Institute, the American Booksellers Association is seeking innovative booksellers who would be willing to share their experiences with implementing game-changing ideas in their stores.

The hour-long “Innovation Arena” session will consist of four TEDx-style talks from booksellers who have had significant “aha!” moments over the past year. Presentations will be short — 10 minutes or less — and will focus on concepts that have saved money, improved operations, created a new efficiency, or increased sales.

Booksellers who are interested in delivering a presentation on their innovative idea can e-mail ABA Senior Education Manager Lisa Winn.

The 15th annual Winter Institute will take place January 21–24, 2020, in Baltimore, Maryland. Registration will open in September.
