What Is New for 2022?

New Voices New Rooms is now a year-round program with events in the spring, summer, and fall. Read more. The Fall Conference is now held in August, and a Spring Conference has been added in May. Publishers can book for either event, or receive a discount when registering for both.

Publisher & Vendor Partner Menu

Each partner receives a “studio” in the gallery. A studio space includes your logo featured in our mobile-friendly Publisher & Vendor Gallery. As an NVNR program partner, your studio will also receive a feature piece in each association’s newsletter in the weeks prior to the conference. For our conference, each studio will include up to three breakout sessions for authors to meet booksellers (publisher responsible for invitations to booksellers) and five listings in the Readers of the Lost ARC Galley Room for each registered NVNR event.

  • Standard Studio Listing: $500 (one conference) or $600 (includes both conferences):  You have the option to either build your own studio spot on your website or upload your content to NVNR for a standard studio listing on the NVNR website. Publishers and Vendors who were featured in previous conferences have the option to update their existing listings, or replace them with new ones.

What you decide to put in your studio space is up to you. Because the emphasis of the show is building connections between booksellers and their industry partners, NVNR highly recommends including some or all of the following:

  • Contact info to make an appointment with you during or after the show, and all sales rep contact info for SIBA & NAIBA territories
  • Show specials and stock offers (discounts, book bundles, special shipping, etc).
  • Event grids and upcoming promotions
  • Links for stores to create a new account
  • Information introducing new authors and access to shareable content.

▶︎ Themed Author Events (Author Panels, Pre-recorded events, other)

$500/author plus ARCS for all bookseller attendees
NVNR Aug only

Themed author events have a variety of formats, with 3-4 authors at each event. They will be hosted Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

▶︎ Interludes: Pre-recorded content up to 10 minutes.  $350/Interlude

NVNR May and NVNR August

A bookseller favorite when we premiered this program in 2021. Promoted with the same visibility and social media presence as the live events, Interludes offer brief, intensely focused moments in the program with a built-in audience. We’re particularly interested in poetry readings, creative play (journaling, drawing/illustrating, idea sparking), and wellness topics, but welcome your ideas. Give us a glimpse of an illustrator in their studio, a writer in their writing space reading a favorite passage of their work, or an author walking outside, or visiting a library or other setting that inspires them. Because we’re virtual, We have the opportunity to have fun and spotlight the author / illustrator / book theme in memorable ways, so let’s get creative!

▶︎ Rep Picks and Editor Buzz: $300 per ten-minute slot

NVNR May and NVNR August

By far some of the most popular events at NVNR! The schedule allows for three Editor Buzz sessions, and six Rep Picks events, so space is limited!

▶︎ Show Box: $350 per item

NVNR August only

Highly anticipated and now in its third year. Inclusion of one item in a box sent to all registered booksellers prior to NVNR Aug.

▶︎ Readers of the Last ARC Galley Room: $25 per listing

Hundreds of booksellers searched and requested books (digital and print). Traffic was especially heavy during and after each pick of the list, editors buzz, and author events.
