Dear Publisher, 

The Western Book Reps’ Association are going to have an in-person Summer Book Fair in 2022, and would be thrilled to get your support for this. 

We will of course have any necessary Covid protocols in place, but felt that it was worth taking the leap back to in-person book fairs again. The BC summer trade book fair is taking place in Victoria, BC, from June 13 to 15, 2022, and we are as usual looking for your kind donation. 

Sponsorship levels are as follows. All sponsors’ logos will be included on a poster at the entrance to the fair, and announced at the start of each meal. 

  • $1000+ – Platinum
  • $501 to $1000 – Gold
  • $500 to $301 – Silver
  • $300 or less – Bronze

We are happy to accept any amount towards the cost of running the book fair! It helps cover ballroom and equipment rentals, a coffee station, wine and cheese reception and lunches for booksellers. 

It’s also of course a golden opportunity to generate goodwill for your company among your customers. The usual suspects will be attending: independent bookstores, libraries, Indigo folk, local specialty retailers, and BC wholesalers. This is a working fair, and we generate a lot of our sales at this event – another reason why it would be a viable use of your marketing dollars. 

What does this donation get you apart from our gratitude? You will be listed on all literature pertaining to the book fair, on the WBRA website, and thanked at any public announcements made at the fair. Your name would also be on the Sponsors’ List in a poster at the door to the Book Fair. 

This is your chance to be a great corporate citizen, and get your name in front of your key customers! 

If you are able to be a sponsor, please have your rep notify us directly by email, to Iolanda Millar at imillar@mandagroup.com and Megan Ferguson at megan@hpdm.ca. And if you have any questions about sponsorship, feel free to contact us. 

Cheques can be made out and mailed to: Western Book Reps Association
