It’s show time! Plan now to join other IPNE members and connect with more than 250 independent bookstores and 1,000 individual booksellers in one action-packed weekend, at the New England Independent Booksellers Association (NEIBA) Fall Conference, held this year at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, Rhode Island from Sept. 30 through Oct. 2. Register by August 20, and you'll save 15 percent on your total participation package.
We'd love to see you there, but you do not need to attend NEIBA in order to exhibit with IPNE – that’s where our organization adds great value to your publishing business. By exhibiting with IPNE at this major book show, you’ll save dramatically over the regular individual exhibitor rate of $600 per table. See rates below.
In addition to Saturday's exclusive exhibit time, IPNE will staff the tables early Friday evening, Oct. 1, for the bookstore buyers' preview of the exhibits; then we'll work the crowd at the popular author reception that evening. For a modest additional fee, IPNE can present your new books to bookstore buyers at Friday’s focused “Publisher's Rep Pic-Nic" and arrange for book-signing  sessions at our tables (signings are announced and promoted by NEIBA).
So sit back, relax - and enjoy the show!  Exhibiting with IPNE at the NEIBA Conference gives you a cost-effective, focused opportunity to participate in the largest of the regional book shows, where book buyers outnumber publishers and book reps by 30 percent! Although publishers do not sell books at NEIBA, all booth visitors will receive a copy of the IPNE catalog with your ordering and contact information. IPNE's tables will be adjacent to those of our affiliated organization, Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA, formerly PMA), so your company will benefit from IBPA traffic and activities, as well.
IPNE Catalog: All IPNE members receive a free listing in the IPNE catalog with an opportunity to purchase additional advertising. Catalog advertising discounts apply for exhibitors who register by the deadline (still to be determined and to be announced soon).

You will receive a confirmation email and reminders before deadlines.
