An announcement regarding the 2020 location and venue will be made shortly.

Booking for 2020 will open late 2019 for members and March 2020 for non-ABA members.

ABA members can book via logging in to the members-only online store

Non-members can book online via the online Australian Booksellers store

The ABA Conference is attended by 250 – 300 people each year and these delegates are a mix of chain, independent, library, educational, and university booksellers as well as publishers, librarians, suppliers and industry specialists.

Dress code is ‘after 5’ – whatever you would wear to a special dinner out with friends.  Of course, feel free to raise the bar!
