The highly acclaimed virtual industry conference returns this year with an expanded program in both May and August. Attendees can register for either or both programs at the same time. There are discounts for publishers who commit to both conferences.
NVNR May is May 17-18 and is focused on bookseller and author/publisher connections, introducing booksellers to authors through panel programs, keynote presentations, and breakout rooms where authors and small groups of booksellers will enjoy get-to-know-you talks. The very popular Pick of the List Rep presentations, and Editors’ Buzz sessions are a feature of the May event, which is timed to give booksellers the information they need when they are making most of their holiday buying decisions.
NVNR August runs August 8-10, and features a week of education, bookseller retreats, author presentations, new and upcoming titles, and publisher studios, similar to NVNR from the past two years. There will be an added focus on networking and building industry connections among bookselling colleagues and publishers.
Registration for the New Voices, New Rooms Virtual Event is strictly limited to members of the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance, the New Atlantic Booksellers Association, and designated attendees. All staff of member bookstores are encouraged to attend. If you are not a member of either organization or otherwise designated and would like information on membership, please contact event organizers.
