The 2017 conference happens May 4 & 5 at the Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa in Groton, CT, and we’d love to see you there. 

Last year, over 700 attendees came out to experience the programs, meet with vendors, and network with each other. We expect 2017 to be another fantastic conference year, with 400-500 attendees each day.

To help boost traffic to your booth, we're again having coffee and snack breaks located inside the exhibit hall, which is right next door to the Keynote and Break-out session areas. We're also offering Exhibits-Only passes to attendees, plus we're extending member rates to library associations in surrounding states.

At the 2017 CLA Conference at Mystic Marriott, we are committed to providing:

- Free & convenient parking, with easy loading and access to the Exhibits Ballrom

- Move-in days and times that work for you (either Wednesday PM or Thursday AM)

- Ample dedicated time for attendees to visit the Ballroom on both days

- Incentives for attendees to visit as many booths as possible

- Coffee & refreshments stations in the Exhibit Ballroom during session breaks

- Special exhibitor breakfast on Friday morning

- Affordable room rates, if you’re staying overnight at the Marriott


For increased visibility, choose a premium exhibit booth located at the ends of the aisles, facing the the doors to the Exhibits Ballroom. These high-traffic booths will be the first ones seen by attendees entering the Ballroom.

You can also highlight your message and your organization with a conference sponsorship! There is a level just right for you, and your company's logo will be displayed for all attendees to see.
