The TLA Conference is an essential annual destination for library and information professional communities — ranging from academic, public, school, to special library markets, information professionals, experts in technology and research, authors, illustrators, and publishing industry representatives.

Each year more than 7,000 attendees join our community for four days of insightful dialogue, networking, and unrivaled access to the organizations and opinion-makers that matter most in the delivery of informational learning resources and services. The 2015 conference featured 1,500 presenters and 400 sessions, events, panels, and industry lectures. The annual conference showcases how libraries are at the forefront of changes in educational technology, digital publishing, and community initiatives for literacy and workforce development.  The exhibit hall hosts close to 500 companies, publishers, interactive media outlets, and professional library service organizations from around the world. TLA is the largest state-wide library conference in the country. Visit the Exhibits Buyers Guide (mobile friendly!) to learn about the many exhibitors who are planning to see you in Houston!
