The Super Expo is the exhibit floor of the Super Conference. It’s your chance to interact with all of the major vendors working in the library industry. You’ll have the opportunity to sample new products, play with different technologies and learn about upcoming services and publications. This is a great chance to meet with company representatives and let them know what your library needs most.

Attending the Super EXPO only is free for OLA members and $45 for non-members.

Things to look out for:

  • Join us at the IdeaHUB Stage for fresh new ideas and practical tools presented by the most innovative vendors in the library world. We will also host authors throughout the day, so drop by either Thursday or Friday for the lively discussions. Don’t forget to check out what’s new in indie publishing with the Ontario Indie Pavillion!
  • Building on the success of last year’s fantastic Style Lounge, we’re bringing it back again. Open both Thursday and Friday on the EXPO floor, we’ll have professional hair, makeup and photographers onsite to give you a headshot that will make your selfie cower in shame. And new this year? Two words: Lash Bar.
  • Author Signings: This is our biggest year yet! Almost 200 author signings will be happening at the conference this year. Keep checking the website as new signings will be added right up until the conference!
  • Join our gamers and gadget lovers for fun, playing, making, learning, and networking at the Tech Petting Zoo. See how you can transform your thinking, your programs, and your spaces with the latest games, gadgets, and STEAM ideas!

Only attending Super Conference on Wednesday? We got you covered with the Community Partners Showcase! This year OLA has invited out community partners to join us and help spread the word of their valuable services. Learn about literacy, advocacy, French services, outreach, and more!
