RILA’s conference is the only statewide library event that brings together a large cross-section of librarians and library administrators representing many library types.  This event also gives RI librarians a chance to network with peers  and vendors from across the region.  This is the best opportunity to make an impact on this thriving market. 


We have many options to sponsor or exhibit at our 2016 conference.  So, whatever your budget, we have something for you! Use this opportunity to thank RI libraries for their business and to let them know what you have coming in 2016 and beyond! 



·         More vendors and exhibitors!

·         Digital Poster sessions available all day!

·         Members of any New England state library association or the regional New England Library Association (NELA) can register at the Rhode Island Member rate through the early bird deadline!
