Due to public health concerns, NEIBA will postpone the Spring Forum until June 10 – 11, 2020 (to coincide with our June All About the Books date). Our venue will remain the same: the DoubleTree in Portland, ME.
Schedule of Events
We are still finalizing our programming and will update you as soon as we have a firm new schedule, but here’s the early plan: we’re looking to bookend this newly-scheduled event with two All About the Books sessions — one on the morning of June 10 and one on the afternoon of June 11. We’re pleased to report that many of our April authors will still be able to join us in June, and we’ll add new authors to the mix for twice the fun. If you are a publisher who would like to submit an author for our June All About the Books, please click here.
The education sessions (the Bookseller Bootcamp and the Owner/Manager HR Intensive) will still be held. And…keep polishing those tiaras and dusting off those dresses and tuxedoes because the PROM, hosted by our friends at Scholastic, IS STILL ON.
If you have already purchased tickets to the Spring Forum, you will be refunded. Ticket holders have already received an EventBrite announcement of a refund and will receive a second e-mail when the refund is complete. Registration for this event will re-open in April on our new website, which will allow you to register multiple booksellers for multiple events — all on a single platform.
If you have reserved a hotel room at the DoubleTree for April, your reservation will automatically be transferred to the corresponding dates of the new event. If you’d like to cancel your room, please contact the hotel directly at 207-775-6161.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to Beth Ineson (Beth@NEBA.org). We look forward to seeing everyone in June — until then, please take good care and stay well!
