Dear WLA Partners,

Please join us for an outstanding WLA conference at the Kalahari Resort & Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells, October 17-20, 2017.

Recharge! That's our message for the 2017 Wisconsin Library Association Annual Conference. We’ll be focusing on helping library professionals find that first, second, third or fourth wind that will really help them supercharge their library and its role in the community.

This year we’re reenergizing the Exhibit Hall, too! We’ve listened to your suggestions over the years and are trying a bunch of new ideas to pull people into the Exhibit Hall more frequently throughout the day.

We’re locating an area of interest in each row of vendors, as well. So our “gold booths” that came at a premium in order to be closer to the action are no more. Now ALL of our booths are gold booths. Take a look at the map and decide if you want to be close to:

  • the Career Center & Information Station
  • the food and snack station
  • the Indy Author and Programming Garden
  • the Silent Auction
  • or near the tables that will feature activities throughout the two days

The individual links above provide 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.

We appreciate the opportunity to work with your company to produce a great conference in 2017! Please contact the WLA office at 608.245.3640 or email any member of the Exhibits Team if you have any questions about these opportunities. We look forward to seeing you at the Kalahari in Wisconsin Dells!

Thank you,
