You are cordially invited to exhibit at the 2017 Association of Bookmobile & Outreach Services Annual Conference to be held October 25-27 at the DoubleTree at GreenTree in Pittsburgh, PA.

ABOS members are professionals and support staff of public libraries who offer library services outside the walls of the library, such as bookmobiles, home delivery or early literacy programs. We have members from all across the United States and some international members as well. Our membership consists of approximately 55% managers, directors, and leaders who make purchases directly and 45% support staff, many of whom influence purchasing decisions at their library. Last year’s conference drew 275 people. We have a variety of sponsorship and visibility options for you this year. We recognize the importance of the Vendors and their participation to make our conference a success and we greatly appreciate your support of ABOS.  This year we will be planning an onsite Evening Extravaganza Networking Event and would love to have our vendors take part as well.
