Trade Shows

RWA regularly hosts booths and/or participates in panels at trade shows like the Public Library Association Conference, the American Library Association Conference, regional shows held by the American Booksellers Association and more. At these shows we strive to educate booksellers and librarians on the romance genre, as well as provide a platform for our members to make industry connections.

Members are often invited to sign at trade shows where we exhibit. Check back throughout the year for opportunities. Signing eligibility requirements can be found in the Policy and Procedures Manual.
