After a year of virtual trade shows only, booksellers and publishers are making plans to gather together again. Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association announced that they will hold their regular tradeshow on October 3, 4, and 5 at the Red Lion on the River in Portland, Oregon.
The 2021 Tradeshow will have some virtual elements as well. This year PNBA has added an expanded online presence for tradeshow participants. Each exhibitor will earn a profile on the official PNBA Tradeshow page consisting of company and rep identification, show floor location, and three links to their website or PDF documents for each purchased table or booth.
The schedule also has been modified to encourage more activity on the tradeshow floor. The PNBA Education Day has been moved from the first day to the last. Organizers said that this will focus the attention of the booksellers and librarians on the exhibitions as well as allow exhibitors to leave by the end of day two, giving the exhibitors an extra day between the back-to-back PNBA and MPIBA tradeshows.
