Through its 60,000+ members, ALA serves as the nation's top resource for public, academic, private, and school libraries. Exhibiting at ALA tradeshows provides the best and most comprehensive opportunity to reach decision-makers in the library industry.

Overall, 92% of the attendees are a buying influence for at least one of the products and services exhibited at the Midwinter Meeting.

62% of the Midwinter Meeting attendees found new companies to do business with based on their time spent in the exhibits.

By its very nature, the American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting attracts a focused group of top library professionals from across all facets of librarianship and information technology. No longer just a business meeting of the Association, the Midwinter Meeting has been redesigned to include programs and special events focused on the conversation of librarianship. The Midwinter Meeting has quickly become the place where librarians from across the country discuss and explore the future of librarians and librarianship. They are searching for new ways to deliver service and keep their libraries a focal point of the communities they serve. Over 8,000 librarians are expected to register; these are the decision makers you need to meet!
