Book Buyers Retreat
NAIBA and NEIBA, are hosting another Book Buyers Summit. This event is meant for adult book buyers only. Space is limited and registration will open in mid-December. Hold the date on your calendar and watch for updates on registration.
Book Buyers Summit
Monday & Tuesday January 23 & 24, 2023
We will be joined by four publishers: W.W. Norton, Penguin Random House, Hachette, and HarperCollins. Each publisher is there to get buyer input on just a few titles in an upcoming season, each making their own unique presentations.
This is also an opportunity to spend time with your fellow book buyers. A large part of our time together will be in group discussion on challenges, ideas, tips, and discussing books. That agenda will be created by the participants in the retreat.
There is a nominal registration fee. Hotel information will be shared soon.
