Book Buyers Retreat
NAIBA and NEIBA, are hosting another Book Buyers Summit. This event is meant for adult book buyers only. Space is limited to just 12 NAIBA buyers. One buyer per store and your store must be a current member of NAIBA.
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 of $25. NAIBA will provide $100 travel grants to the bookstore after the event. The event begins on Monday at 12:30pm with lunch, and ends on Tuesday at 2pm following lunch.
For your hotel room, please call asap: The Beekman Arms directly at 845-876-7077 option 1
The rooms range in price (depending on the building they are in) from $209 - $229.
