Information for Publishers.
Publishers who have booked a display table (or tables) for the Western Literature Association’s 49th Annual Conference (Bordersongs 2014) please note: The conference takes place at the Fairmont Empress Hotel, Victoria British Columbia, Canada, 5-8 November 2014.
The hotel highly recommends any shipments go through a customs broker. Fed Ex and Purolator have their own brokers. Should you choose to use another shipper, please be sure to confirm with your shipping company that the items will be brokered. All shipments should use the shipping label attached here. And all shipments must include copies of the attached Canadian Border Services letter regarding special arrangements for this international conference. The hotel asks that you arrange for any shipment to arrive not too far in advance of the conference start date.
Displays will be in the Palm Court where the Wednesday evening reception and the pre banquet reception (and probably morning coffee service) will be held. Set up will be Wednesday afternoon, November 5. The room is not 100% secure because staff have access via an unlockable service entrance at back of house; however the doors to the public areas lock once closed and you should be able to confidently leave your displays in place overnight.
