The New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association will hold its 2013 fall trade show in New Jersey again this year. But it will be farther north than usual at the Somerset Doubletree in Somerset from September 30 through October 2. The new location is close to Amtrak’s New Brunswick Station, NJ Transit, and Newark Airport. The show will return to the Washington, D.C. suburbs and the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in 2014.
Other regional booksellers associations have begun announcing fall conference dates and locations. The New England Independent Bookstores Association is back at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence from October 6-8, and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association will return to the Airport Holiday Inn in Portland from October 6-8. The Heartland Fall Forum, held jointly by the Great Lakes and the Midwest Independent Booksellers Associations, will be held at the Crowne Plaza O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill, from October 4-6.
