PAL members, join us for an opportunity to have conversations with producers, executives and individuals who are looking to buy film and/or television rights for books, a.k.a. Intellectual Property, a.k.a. IP. This is a chance to deliver your elevator pitches and perhaps schedule a meeting or two for the full deal.


May 9th 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

How Much:

$45 – includes hors d’oeuvres and one drink at the cash bar.

Can I bring a guest?

Yes, if you have a professional representative, such as a manager, agent, etc. you’re welcome to invite them for an additional cost of $20 each. Only a limited number of guest spots are available.

What if I know a producer or executive who might want to come?

We all know someone in the business, which is great, but not all of them are in the market to buy book rights. If you have a friend who is in that position, first, ask them why they aren’t buying YOUR books. After all, you have to look out for yourself. Then, let us know who you have in mind, and we’ll send you our official invitation to forward on to them. We can also send it directly to them if you prefer. There is no additional cost for guests who are looking to buy IP.
