Where: SQUARE Brussels Meeting Centre

Conference attendees, be sure to pencil into your conference schedule this unique opportunity to meet many of the great minds behind the leadership books you've read and used in your work, research, or classrooms. In addition to the many authors that will be on hand, the reception also includes an opportunity to meet and congratulate ILA's 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award winners, in person. This reception is open to all conference attendees and is included in the cost of conference registration.

Leadership authors, the Meet the Authors Reception is a popular conference event where participating authors are assigned cocktail tables where they can display an author-provided copy of their book and converse with attendees interested in their work all while enjoying an evening reception at the conference.

If you are an author of a leadership book…

  1. Sign up for the Meet the Authors Reception via the conference registration form.
  2. Ask your publisher to support your attendance at this event by:
    • Exhibiting at the conference and selling your book at their table.
    • Purchasing an advertisement in the program book or tote bag insert promoting your book and participation in the event.
    • Share with your publisher ILA's sponsorship, exhibitor, and advertising guide which has details of these and other opportunities
All authors are welcome to participate in the Meet the Authors reception, but please remember to sign up in advance so we can list you in the program book! A limited number of authors who sign up to participate in the Meet the Authors reception may also be selected by the conference bookstore to participate in an author book signing during this event. Should the bookstore choose to host a signing for you, you will be notified by the end of September.

Conference Bookstore

This year's onsite conference book store will be run by Sterling Books. Sterling Books is an independent English bookstore in the center of Brussels. They opened their doors in 1997, and quickly became a favorite destination for the city's book-lovers.
