Exhibitor Information

Virginia Association of School Librarians (VAASL) 2021 Annual Conference
"Library - Love, Literacy, Learning"

We invite you to join with VAASL as we celebrate being back together in person, and promote Love, Literacy, and Learning in school libraries across the state of Virginia.

The Virginia Association of School Librarians (VAASL) has a membership of over 1200 school librarians and educators, many of whom are district level supervisors with large purchasing budgets and decision makers for the largest school systems throughout Virginia.  We anticipate more than 800 will participate in this year's 2021 VAASL Annual Conference in Williamsburg.

Your financial support of the VAASL annual conference helps us to provide librarians around the state with this professional development event.

Registering for a booth, sponsoring an event, and/or advertising in the program are perfect ways to showcase your company to our membership and conference participants. Sponsorships can be reserved and paid for via the online Exhibitor Registration form at the time you reserve your booth(s).
