PNBA Fall Trade Show: October in Tacoma

Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association will hold their Fall Trade Show on Oct 13 to 15 (Saturday – Monday) in Tacoma, WA, at the Hotel Murano and Convention Center.

The publishers’ exhibits for the show will be set up in the Muranoʼs Conference Center, attached to the Hotel. The exhibit tables will be six feet long, and the booth size will be 8′ x 8′. Book Publishers Northwest plans to reserve a booth space to display one title from each paid 2012 member at show. *

Publishers who would like to have their exhibit on both Sunday and Monday, October 14 and 15, need to reserve exhibit space by Friday, June 22. Vendors may also reserve space for Sunday only at a later date.

PNBA plans to have no author signings on the show floor during the first day of exhibits. The emphasis on the show floor on Sunday will be exclusively on the exhibitors, according to their website. PNBA president Thom Chambliss will be the May meeting speaker at BPNW. We encourage members and interested others to bring their questions about the show to this meeting.

For further information on this trade show for Northwest booksellers and librarians (the show is not open to the public), please see PNBA’s website.

*Free display of one title at the PNBA show is a benefit of paid membership in BPNW. Members also have the opportunity to volunteer at the booth as space permits. More information about BPNW booth,  staffing, and deadlines for submitting books for display will be emailed to paid members in August. For information on how to join BPNW, please click here.
