ABA Seeks Bookseller Innovators for Winter Institute Session [4]

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 [6]-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 [7].

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