Wi5 Booked to Capacity -- Waiting List Now Forming

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Registration for the American Booksellers Association's Fifth Annual Winter Institute (Wi5) is now booked to capacity. ABA bookstore and provisional members who would like to add their names to a waiting list should send an e-mail to Wi5@bookweb.org. As cancellations are received, spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Registered booksellers who no longer plan to attend are also asked to notify ABA as soon as possible via e-mail to wi5@bookweb.org, so that waiting booksellers can fill their places. Registration for Wi5, which will be held from February 3 - 5, 2010, in San Jose, California, is capped at 500.

Reservations at Wi5's host hotel, the Doubletree San Jose, at the special room rate of $115/night are also soldout. Booksellers who no longer need their hotel reservations are asked to contact ABA rather than the hotel, so that waiting booksellers can be assigned their rooms.

Full Wi5 program details, including session descriptions, are available on BookWeb's Wi5 Event pages. Questions about the education program and event registration may be addressed to Wi5@bookweb.org.
