|SIBA in the Springtime|
SIBA hosts two major education and development events for its members every year: the annual Fall Discovery Show in September, and SIBA in the Springtime, in March. While the format of the Discovery Show remains fairly constant – a day of education sessions, and a day and a half of exhibits – SIBA in the Springtime is a place to experiment with new formats and creative ideas. In the past these have included spa retreats, field trips, tours of related industries, user group meeting spaces, town-hall gatherings, and TED-formatted talks.
2020: THE MARCH MADNESS BOOKSELLER SERIES (MMBS)
Where every bookseller is a champion!
SIBA in the Springtime (SITS) takes our programming to a new level of participation and engagement by member booksellers. May we present our March Madness Bookseller Series! Thirteen bookstores across our territory will host one-day education and networking gatherings running from 10am-3pm with an author luncheon. Events are within 2-3 hours driving distance from a majority of our member stores, and take place over a three-week period in March. Booksellers may register for multiple events, as each host store's education is tailored to share their best practices and innovations. We're so excited to offer this range of programming to our booksellers, and are opening up registration now so folks can save the date!
The American Booksellers Association will present during lunch at our events at Page 158 and Avid Bookshop: ABA Open Forum: Members are encouraged to ask questions, give feedback, and share ideas.
