Fall Discovery Show 2018 – Bookseller Reservation Form

Register for the Fall Discovery Show by September 14, 2018

Current MPIBA member bookstores are welcome to attend this year’s Fall Discovery Show. If you haven’t already renewed your membership dues for 2018-2019, you can easily do that in this form.
Meal and event tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis, so plan on submitting this form at your earliest convenience. Beginning September 15, 2018, a $25 late fee will be automatically added.

No registration is necessary for the Saturday bookseller educational sessions and roundtables.

You will pick up name badges and meal tickets at the Registration Desk when you arrive at the Fall Discovery Show.
You will pay for your Fall Discovery Show 2018 and Membership Renewal with a secure credit card transaction below.
You must pay for your total charges when you submit this form; otherwise, you are not considered registered for the Show. Your selections and charges will be recapped in a notification letter you will receive after submitting. Your credit card receipt and e-mailed notification will be used instead of an invoice or sales receipt from MPIBA.
If you have questions about this Bookseller Reservation Form or your bookstore’s registration status, or if you already submitted the form and need to make changes for yourself and your attending booksellers, please do not complete another form.
Instead, communicate changes via e-mail to MPIBA:

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Show!

    Publishers' author and events sponsorships allow meal ticket prices for booksellers to be well below MPIBA's cost. Publishers and sales reps will provide MPIBA with the names of booksellers who have been invited to join their table during a meal event by giving them a complimentary meal ticket, so you do not have to list your invitations in this form. Booksellers' meal tickets will be refunded after the Show, when MPIBA has processed all of the complimentary ticket lists.
