Missouri Library Association 2019 Performer Showcase
All attendees of the MLA 2019 Conference (October 2-4) will be invited to attend a Performer Showcase scheduled for Wednesday, October 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (Performers will be scheduled 8-11. From 11:00-11:30 p.m., attendees may visit performers’ tables to pick up information and ask questions). This is a great opportunity to present a short sneak preview of your program, distribute promotional materials and speak with librarians from around Missouri. The Performer Showcase Selection Committee will be looking for quality programming appropriate for children, teens, and/or families at a reasonable cost to the host libraries. Please note the following details about this showcase.
Due to time constraints and with the goal of providing a range of programming choices for our conference attendees, all applicants may not be scheduled to perform during the Showcase.
Each performer chosen will be given ten minutes, including set up and take down time, to perform for the conference attendees.
A print and online directory of performers will also be published; the print directory will be distributed to all conference attendees and the online directory will be available on the MLA website. The contents for both directories will be obtained from the information you provide in your Performer Showcase application; please be as complete and accurate as possible.
Performers will be provided with tables to display and distribute promotional materials. Outside food and beverages are prohibited by the KCI Expo Center.
