Sponsor a Bookseller Scholarship

$1000.00. That is what it costs to bring a bookseller to the SIBA Discovery Show. SIBA does its best to keep things affordable, but after you add up the costs of travel, hotel, meals, extra staffing, shipping and other incidental expenses, the total can really get up there. Many booksellers just can't afford to come. Many would love the opportunity to bring their staff as part of their training and staff development, but the costs are just too high. SIBA encourages its friends in the publishing industry to consider sponsoring a bookseller to come to the show. The show helps make better booksellers. And better booksellers are better at selling your books!
