WHY BECOME A FLORIDA LIBRARY ASSOCIATION SPONSOR?

Maximize your investment in Florida.

After a successful 2018 conference, with more than 670 librarians and support staff in attendance, the 2019 conference is one you will want to be part of. Take advantage of this special opportunity to feature your company or organization, and what you have to offer to librarians from across the state. As a Conference sponsor, you will maximize your investment. Thank you for supporting Florida libraries!

Support and grow your loyal customer base.

FLA offers many sponsorship opportunities as listed in this registration packet. Sponsorships at every level help to make the Conference a reality. The Conference, in turn, brings into one place a significant group of professionals who make up your customer base. Sponsorships provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Increase the visibility of your company and brand at the Conference beyond the exhibitor booth.
  • Show support for the Florida library community.
  • Give back to those who have made investments in your products and services.
