We are privileged to be located in the hub of publishing with access to publicists. NAIBA's annual Publicity Speed Dating will be on Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 9:30am to 4:30pm. It consists of 15 minute one-on-one conversations with publicists from all the major houses & imprints, as well as our treasured independent presses.  We also feature three authors (speaking at 10am and during lunch). 

To prepare you for the day, our marketing consultant, Maribeth Pelly, will conduct the annual press kit webinar. This will be on Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 10am. You will be asked to register for this as well as you register for Publicity Speed Dating. You may submit your press kit to Ms. Pelly for review in advance. The webinar will be one hour long and will show you what you need to include and how to create a compelling marketing piece.
