Bookmanager Academy is three days of Bookmanager software, webstore, and general bookselling education and round table discussion. Coupled with plenty of social events to meet and network with your fellow word nerds; it's like summer camp for booksellers, minus the obstacle course!
Booksellers from across North America are invited!
If you heard great things about BMA, or attended the retreat in 2015 or 2017, this year's event will be structured much the same. “If it ain't broke, don't fix it!”
BMA2019 will be held from Friday, September 6 – Sunday, September 8, 2019, in beautiful downtown Kelowna, British Columbia. This year's hotel accommodations and education sessions are all located on the waterfront at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort.
The full itinerary of education sessions and parties will be released early in the summer. This year's BMA will be similar to 2017's event, with full days of education on the Friday and Saturday, a special half-day session on Sunday for Canadian booksellers hosted by Penguin Random House Canada, and a smattering of social events throughout the weekend.
There will also be a reps only session on Sunday morning while the Penguin Random House seminar for booksellers is going on. The reps only session will conclude no later than noon.
Please note: There will be no WBRA bookfair as part of this event!
Registration for BMA2019 is now open, and can be done by clicking the big button below. A $60 registration fee per attendee is required, with no limit on the number of attendees per business. This year's hotel and conference space is much larger than 2017's venue, so our "two attendees per store" cap from 2017 is no more, with leg-room to spare! The registration deadline is June 15, 2019.
Bookmanager Academy would not be possible without the generous support from our sponsors. Really, this stuff ain't cheap, so make sure to give your reps/publishers/distributors a big "Thank you!" the next time you see them!
