Costs

Travel costs for presenters vary, depending on flight costs for the presenters based on their locations in relation to host sites, and the lodging options made available (1 or 2 nights depending on schedule and flight availability). We have found that costs for past workshops usually land in the ballpark of $800-1,200 per presenter, but can inch a bit higher on rare occasions. Because of this, we recommend a $2,000 budget total for these expenses in addition to the license fee.

You can charge attendees to help recover costs but please note, our RoadShows are not intended to serve as profitable events for the host institution.

Contact Chase Ollis by email at collis@ala.org or phone at (312) 280-2521 for a licensing fee quote.
