Indie Author & Program Garden: smaller booths at a smaller price
November 16-19, 2021
Exhibit Dates: November 17-18

Dear Independent Authors of Wisconsin, and friendly reenactors, 

Let’s get Back on Track! and Face-to-Face at the 2021 Wisconsin Library Association Annual Conference! 

We will meet at the KI Convention Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin, November 16-19, 2021. The conference focus is on helping libraries reconnect to their communities, create innovative spaces, and use resources in new and exciting ways.  

Move-in day is Tuesday, November 16, and Exhibits are open Wednesday and Thursday, November 17-18. Along with you in the Indie Author Garden, several events are planned for the Exhibit Hall including the Career Center, the ever-popular WLA Foundation Silent Auction and “Back on Track Bingo”. There will be two no-conflict breaks each day, providing opportunities to spend face-to- face time with attendees from the library community. 

The Vendor Prospectus offers many ways for you to participate, support WLA and get your name out there. Take a look at page 7 to see the Exhibits Space Floor Plan to see the location of the Indie garden. Prices are $100 per day. For this you get ½ of an 8-foot table to display your books, and meet with potential customers. Options are available for meals too.  

Please complete the online form to reserve your spot!       


We appreciate the opportunity to work with you to produce a great conference in 2021!       

Please email any member of the Exhibits Team with your questions about these opportunities. Make sure to reserve your hotel room by October 25, and refer to WLA to get the discounted group rate – see page 2 of the Prospectus. 

Libraries are getting Back on Track! and we hope you will join us at the KI Convention Center to create an outstanding WLA Conference!   

Your Exhibits Team,
