Publicity Speed Dating: February 27, 2015 in New York City

Sign up NOW to be in this round of publicity meeting.

"I feel bad for those who did not get the opportunity to attend. When would I ever get the chance to be in front of 17+ publicity people and have their undivided attention for fifteen minutes? The webinar for our press kit was extremely helpful. I can proudly show publishers what I can offer." - Donna Fell, Sparta Books

 "Unexpectedly, we came home with quite a few solid leads for events. Many of the publicists had done their homework and had specific event possibilities to discuss. Others, as we were talking back and forth about what we do and what they need, offered some incredible leads that were not on our radar at all!" - Margot Sage-EL, watchung booksellers

"It was so very worth our time and efforts." - Kit Little, Towne Book Center & Cafe

Welcome to NAIBA, a regional trade association of locally-owned, independent booksellers, and the authors and publishers who enjoy working with them and promoting their books through the independent bookstore. We provide the community, education, awareness, and tools for independent bookstores to succeed. Our region covers New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington DC, northern Virginia and West Virginia.

To achieve these goals, NAIBA hosts an annual conference in the Fall to educate and enlighten booksellers and publishers; creates opportunities throughout the year for booksellers to visit with each other and exchange ideas and have problems solved; communicates weekly with our members on industry events, issues, and creative ideas.

"Our membership is worth every penny for all the great services provided to booksellers. Appreciate all your hard work."
