Bookseller Forum: A Great Opportunity to Seek a Hotel ABA Room-Share

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Looking for a room-share at Hotel ABA, or perhaps a ride-share to New York City, for next month's BookExpo America?

BookWeb's Bookseller-to-Bookseller Forum is great place to reach out to other ABA member booksellers looking for the same things. The forums are open exclusively to ABA member booksellers, and are a great tool to communicate and network with other indie booksellers who are planning to attend BEA. All that's needed for access is a BookWeb user name and password. Owners and staff at ABA member stores who don't have an account can create one by sending an e-mail request to [email protected] that includes the store name, bookseller's name, and ABA I.D. number if available.

This year's Hotel ABA is the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn, where a block of rooms has been reserved exclusively for ABA member booksellers for Wednesday, May 27, through Sunday, May 31.

A great package of Hotel ABA guest benefits includes an extra free BEA badge, a chance to win a full scholarship to the next ABA Winter Institute, and limited complimentary theater seating at BEA Book & Author Breakfasts and Lunch, in addition to special social events, a complimentary four-trip NYC MetroCard for travel between Brooklyn and the Javits Center, and more.

The Hotel ABA member rate is only available until Monday, May 4, or until the group block is sold out, whichever comes first. Booksellers must make their Hotel ABA reservations via the Marriott's dedicated reservation webpage for ABA members.

Network with the community of booksellers sharing ideas and experiences on the forums ... and at Hotel ABA.
