NVNR EXHIBITS: Reservations and Author Submissions Now Open

Community, Conference News, Industry,


New Voices New Rooms, the joint NAIBA and SIBA conference, is now accepting reservations for exhibits and has opened its call for authors for its 2024 conference. NVNR 2024 will return to Arlington, Virginia Thursday through Sunday, August 8-11 and will feature a larger exhibit hall, more author placements, and expanded options for exhibitors to put their books in front of booksellers.

The move to weekend dates is designed to draw in seasonal and smaller stores with more flexible weekend schedules. NAIBA and SIBA will also increase the number of travel grants awarded to bookstores to offset the expense of attendance, as well as bring back day-pass opportunities. NVNR has also simplified the process for exhibitors to sponsor booksellers at the conference.

New for 2024:

  • Exhibitors allowed extra tables. On-site exhibits and sponsorships allow exhibitors to add up to two extra tables above what is already included.
  • More author placement in the program. The program for 2024 includes extra author receptions and author panel opportunities.
  • More Editor Spots at Our Editors Buzz Reception. NVNR expanded space for more editors at one of last year’s most popular events
  • More Region-specific programming focusing on dedicated NAIBA and SIBA markets.
  • An expanded focus on Genre titles, including a reception for genre authors.
