Workshop: From Bookstore to Campus Store

In Partnership with Slingshot

As course material delivery models change, the traditional bookstore is transitioning to a campus store. This gives your institution the opportunity to ensure your store is in the center of the campus ecosystem.

Throughout the Workshop, you will have an opportunity to learn from thought leaders, break into smaller groups to discuss how topics align to a self-operated versus leased store model, and brainstorm ways to address the trends happening within campus stores.

Registration is free for institutional members and $250 for business partners.
