The exciting Publicists Speed Dating will be held twice in 2018. ABA member bookstore owners, managers, and event coordinators meet with publicists from several publishers from among the participating companies. Representatives from the same store will rotate together to assigned publicists’ tables. During the timed “dates,” booksellers have the chance to promote their stores and discover what publicists look for when planning author tours. Pre-registration is required.
Booksellers may sign up for the Day 1 session (Wednesday, May 30) and/or the Day 2 session (Friday, June 1).
Registration opens on March 28. RESERVE FOR PUBLICISTS SPEED DATING HERE. Registration closes on May 10.
The list of publisher participants will be added to as they are confirmed.
