Charleston Premiers

Five Minute Previews of the New and Noteworthy

Thursday, November 14, 2024
Charleston Gaillard Center

These sessions are designed to offer publishers and vendors the chance to showcase their newest and most innovative products, platforms, and/or content. The focus will be on new companies, content, or technologies that are not widely known by the general library population and that will be of interest to the Charleston Conference audience.

Speakers will be organized in a “lightning round” format with 10 companies, each allotted 5-minute presentations, back-to-back. Audience members will vote on several “Best of” categories and awards will be given to the winners. More information on presentation requirements will be sent upon acceptance of your proposal.
