Event Details

Join us for the annual NAIBA and NEIBA Book Buyers Summit. This year's event is meant for children's book buyers only. Space is limited to just 15 NAIBA buyers. One buyer per store and your store must be a current member of NAIBA.

Book Buyers Summit

Sunday & Monday, February 25-26, 2024

Beekman Arms, Rhinebeck, NY

We will be joined by four publishers: Hachette, Scholastic, Nosy Crow, 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 reimburse full cost of one night in the hotel to NAIBA members after the event.  The event begins on Sunday at 12:15pm with lunch, and ends on Monday at 2:30pm following lunch.
