How much can I save when I buy in the Store? The ATD Store offers books at conference-only discounts off the list price. Research reports are priced at $75 (normally $499), an 85 percent discount off list price. TD at Work issues are sold for $10 (normally $19.95).

Are there any other great discounts? If you spend $100, you can get the ASTD Leadership Handbook, edited by Elaine Biech, for an additional $29.95. That’s a $100 savings. This resource brings together 48 thought leaders you know and trust to share wisdom on every facet of leadership. Ask for it at checkout.
When should I buy? ATD stocks only certain number of each book. Keynote and session speaker books are known to sell out in advance of their presentations. To ensure you enjoy the ATD Store discounts, don’t wait until Wednesday.
Will there be a flash sale on the last day? Nope! Book prices won’t change.
What ATD merchandise can I get? This year, the store will have a Washington, D.C.-specific T-shirt, postcard, and tote bag. We also have a new long-sleeve T-shirt. Other merchandise includes “Future trainer” baby onesies, keychains, polos, journals, ATD tote bags, tumblers, notebooks, phone chargers, stickers, and bottle openers.
Can I leave my books at the store? We’ll hold all books that you have paid for through the conference. We cannot hold books that you haven’t purchased. You can drop off your books at the Information Booth at any time and pick them up by 3 p.m. on Wednesday.
How can I find what I’m looking for? Books are organized by topic and by speaker. Speaker books are also called out in the program guide by session. If you need help finding a book, ATD staff and volunteers are there to assist you. TD at Work and research reports have their own table and are organized by topic.
What are book bundles? ATD Press staff curate books, research reports, and TD at Work issues by topic. Bundles offer extra savings of up to 80 percent off retail price.
What payment options do you accept? The ATD Store accepts U.S. dollars, personal checks, travelers’ checks, American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. We do not accept CHiP codes.
Do you ship books from the store? We do not box and ship books at the Store, but the convention center features a shipping center from which you can mail your books. We will provide boxes and packing materials free of charge as supply allows.
