Although we say ATD 2019 has something for everyone, that’s especially true for book lovers. If you love books, make sure to attend one of the ATD Store’s events or visit the store during your down time.
Located in Salons GHI of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the store will offer more than 650 titles, including ATD Press books, conference speakers’ books, research reports, and TD at Work issues. It’s also where you can pick up ATD-themed merchandise, meet some of your favorite speakers and authors, and mingle with other attendees.
The store will be open:
- 4-6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 18
- 7 a.m.–6 p.m. Sunday through Tuesday, May 19-21
- 7 a.m.–5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22.
When the store first opens at 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, come by for a preconference reception and book sale. Attendees will receive a 10 percent discount off their entire purchase until 5:30 p.m. There’s no need to preregister—just stop by and enjoy.
Throughout the conference, you can visit the store for books from keynote speakers Oprah and Seth Godin; meet and greets with featured authors and the ATD Press team; and author chats. During meet and greets, take the opportunity to connect with authors in a more casual setting and get your books signed. Each meet and greet will feature a different group of authors, so check the schedule in advance and make plans to meet your favorites.
Author chats are 45-minute sessions that take place in the ATD Store where authors will discuss their respective books. Confirmed authors are Steve Shallenberger, Kevin Kruse, Susan Robertson, Beverly Kaye, and Julie Winkle Giulioni
