Dear WLA Partner, 

We invite you to join us for an outstanding WLA conference at the Madison Marriott West in Middleton from November 3-6, with exhibit days being November 4-5.

Let's Make It Happen! That's the theme for the 2015 Wisconsin Library Association Annual Conference. Our focus is on helping libraries connect to their communities, creating innovative spaces, and using and re-using resources in new and exciting ways.

This year’s conference promises to offer a multitude of great programs and social events, all in an environment meant to engage everyone attending. There are several events planned for the Exhibit Hall, including the Demonstration Stage, Maker Space and the ever-popular WLA Foundation Silent Auction. As always, there will be two no-conflict breaks each day, which provide opportunities for everyone to greet and meet new and returning vendors.

The Exhibitors Packet provides the various contracts to enable you to fully participate in this year's conference. Booth space will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The floor plan will be updated as contracts are received in the WLA office and spaces sold will be highlighted in yellow; an updated floor plan will be posted on the exhibitor web page as changes are made.

For your convenience, below are the individual links to the contracts provided in the Exhibitors Packet.  Please forward completed contracts to
