Kidlitcon 2019-Providence!

Kidlitcon is coming to Providence RI March 22 and 23 2019!  We'll be the Hotel Providence, right in beautiful, quirky downtown, and we hope you can join us!  Here's our website, with all the information to date.

Kidlitcon is an annual (more or less) gathering of children's and YA book folk (authors, illustrators, reviewers, librarians, gatekeepers, parents, publishers and more), and we can promise two days full of great discussions and great friendships, with two keynote speakers and concurrent panels on a wide variety of book topics!  There will also be food and drink and swag.  The Kidlitcon organizers for 2019 are Mia Wenjen and me, and we are determined to make this the best Kidlitcon ever (which is a high bar).

Since we're still a bit more than a year out, registration isn't open yet, but you can start planning to come now!  We welcome ideas for panels and expressions of interest (there's a poll at the website, to give us a sense of what people are most interested in talking about), and we've also started looking for sponsorships so that we can keep registration costs down and still break even.

Here are some sponsorship opportunities:

As soon as we have ticketing set up, you can select Sponsorship from the list of options. Any amount over $50 will get you a side bar listing on our website, a post on our facebook page, inclusion in the program and on signage at the conference, recognition from the podium, and will be part of a coordinated social media blast to the c. 300,000 folks reached by our team!

 The following special options are also available.

 Food and beverage sponsorships:  

 These sponsorships will give you the listing and outreach above, plus an easel in the food and beverage room displaying an advertisement/promotional image of your choice (that fits on a standard conference easel) on display both days of the conference.
·            Breakfast $250 (two available)

·           Morning coffee and tea. ​$200 (two available)

·           Afternoon snack: $250 (two available)      

·           Lunch: $500 (two available)

·           Friday Evening reception sponsorship $150 (four available)       

·                Snack: $300 (two available)
Audio Visual sponsorship

Sponsor the AV needs of one of our meeting rooms!  As well as the listing and outreach above, you can send us an image to use as the screen saver/default page of one of the projectors, and each session in that room will begin with a thank you image and acknowledgement from the podium.

AV sponsorship: $225 (three available)


Your ad placed in the program given out to attendees. Attendees actually look at and keep our program.

Quarter Page                       $50
Half Page                            $100
Full Page                             $200

Easel Display

Your promotional image/advertisement displayed on an easel in the registration/food and beverage area! Kidlitcon attendees love to look at book pictures and book news, so this is a great way for publishers to showcase forthcoming titles, or if you're an author, it's a great way to spotlight your newest book (you can share your spot with other authors too, to save money!).  Limited to 6, we can print your image for you at cost or you can mail it to us.

One day  $50
Both days $75

If you are interested in coming, presenting, sponsoring, or all of the above, please shoot me an email-charlotteslibrary@gmail.com. Thanks!

And keep an eye on the website for more information as we get closer to the date!
