You are invited to exhibit at the 129th Connecticut Library Association (CLA) Annual Conference, which will take place April 26-28, 2020 at the Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa in Groton, CT. We hope you will join us.

 

The theme for 2020 is “Setting Our Sights on Success.” 

 

Year after year, our exhibitors tell us that the Connecticut Library Association conference is among the most worthwhile library trade shows in the northeastern United States. We expect another fantastic crowd of over 700 attendees over the two day conference.

 

In order to guarantee a listing in the conference booklet, your registration and payment must be received by April 1, 2020. Any registrations made after this date will be required to pay an extra $150.00 fee and your listing will not make it into the conference booklet.
