Juried Product Development Forums
The Forums are focus groups designed for publishers and vendors to gather market input from librarians on the development of a particular product or service, and for librarians to discuss market issues with publishers and vendors invited to participate in a forum.

The Forum sessions for librarians are intended for library staff and will be closed to other publishers and vendors. Invitations will be sent to registered library workers by email, and there will be a staffed sign-up table at the Conference for attendees to register on-site. In addition, publishers & vendors may invite their customers to sign up for this event. Distributors, consultants or individuals from other companies will be admitted if the participating publisher or vendor has added their name to the list of attendees for their session.

Publishers and vendors have a unique opportunity for feedback from librarians regarding the design, features, feasibility or pricing of a particular product or service that addresses internal debates and shortens the sales cycle.

Charleston Chase and Chug
Join your fellow intrepid conference-goers for an early morning jaunt around some familiar Charleston haunts— 5k or 1 mile, run or walk, go the whole distance or just meet for an early coffee — it’s just a loosely organized* chance to get a little fresh air and fresh coffee (and maybe a fresh t-shirt) to complement the conference’s fresh content.

Schedule and More Info

Maps



*The fine print:  the Chase and the Chug are both non-certified, non-sanctioned, non-Boston qualifying, non-competitive, friendly, sidewalk-only events, and neither is officially or unofficially authorized or sponsored by the Charleston Conference. There will be no prize money, no police escorts, no waivers, no water stops, no fancy porta-potties, no sliced bananas at the finish line— that said, you could do worse than starting your day with a great cup of coffee and some nice new conference-wear.   Questions/comments/concerns may be directed to that one guy who’s vouching for this whole deal as legit: kanewp@wfu.edu.

Five minute previews of the new and noteworthy!

VIDEO

These sessions are designed to offer publishers and vendors the chance to showcase their newest and most innovative products, platforms, and/or content. This year, the Conference Directors are changing up the formatting for these Saturday morning sessions in order to better provide a wide breadth of content on new and updated products that are of interest to the Charleston Conference community. A Q&A follow-up session is also scheduled during the first round of concurrent sessions later Saturday morning to allow time to chat with the presenters. 

We’ll have a breakfast buffet available, so plan on getting some grub and getting information on the latest, most innovative products on the market.
