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 on Sunday June 23, 2019 at the ALA Conference Exhibit Hall, Special Events Area. 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 experts. Each year we invite different library marketing experts, John Cotton Dana Awards winners, and library marketing authors to sit at our many tables.

The PR Xchange Event and the PR Xchange Awards Competition are both coordinated by the PR Xchange Committee, and sponsored by the Marketing and Communications Community of Practice of LLAMA.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

Best of luck to all participants!
