LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience | About Exhibiting

Brought to you by the American Library Association, this new conference will offer an ALA member-focused experience designed to motivate, inspire, and engage in discussions that will shape the future of libraries and communities.
 

Exhibit Opportunities

The LLX Marketplace offers an engagement-proving ground, designed for creative collaboration and interactive learning within the exhibit space. Attendees will network with exhibitors and publishers to learn about the newest titles, engaging authors, leading technology, and core services to ALA members.

Each virtual exhibitor will have an Exhibit Room on the LLX virtual event platform. Exhibit Rooms provide companies with a dedicated meeting room to play pre-recorded video content or live sessions. Marketing materials can be made available under the files tab. Exhibitors can use the chat tab to engage and network with attendees and request contact information.

Exhibitors can choose to play a pre-recorded video, or switch their room to a live meeting for real-time demos, Meet the Authors chats, and more. When finished with your live meeting, exhibitors can toggle back to pre-recorded content.
