About the PR Xchange Event at ALA Annual
The PR Xchange is a drop-in style event at the ALA Annual Conference. It will be held in the morning on Sunday June 26, 2016 at the ALA Conference Exhibit Hall, Special Events Area. It’s an exciting event where libraries across the country share their PR and marketing ideas. View and take free copies of award-winning promotional materials from the juried PR Xchange awards, as well as promotional materials from libraries across North America. Attendees can learn how to improve their own promotional materials by talking with John Cotton Dana Award Winners, PR Xchange award winners, and other Library Marketing authors and experts.
The PR Xchange Event and the PR Xchange Awards Competition are both overseen by the PR Xchange Committee.
Best of luck to all participants!
