Make Your Conference Experience ‘Extra’ Special

You’re going to the SLA 2015 Annual Conference in Boston for the big things—the education, the new ideas, the networking, the exhibits, the passion and energy you feel being around hundreds of your peers. But it’s the little things, the “extra” things, that can make or break your conference experience.

Extras like maps of the convention center and hotel meeting rooms. An insider’s advice on where to eat, shop, or just hang out. A brief overview of what’s new this year, so you can more easily decide how to spend your valuable time. Without these, you feel like a tourist in a strange town where the locals don’t speak your language and your money is no good.


Fortunately, help is at hand. In addition to the familiar pocket guide, with its daily schedule of workshops, meetings, and networking events, attendees at SLA 2015 will receive the Conference Extra, a 12-page publication with floor plans of the Boston Convention Center and Westin Hotel, tips on “getting around” Boston from someone who knows the city well, and an overview of the new features (Master Classes and Crescendo Sessions). You’ll also find photos of the 2015 award recipients and a reflection on the value of SLA by President Jill Strand.

With the Conference Extra and the pocket guide, you’ll have everything you need to make your conference experience productive. And if you want to make your load even lighter, consider downloading the app for the SLA online schedule. You can find it at
