Offsite Events Service
Did you know that Quail Ridge Books can provide books for your author event held outside the store?
Is your organization hosting an author event? Are you an author presenting at a local conference, university, or venue? We partner with authors directly, as well as a broad range of organizations, including universities, businesses, libraries, conferences, non-profits, museums, hospitals, theaters, entertainment venues, churches, and other houses of worship to provide books for your events.
We provide books and all the necessary sales equipment (cash box, Square Reader for credit cards, etc.) as well as bags, bookmarks, display easels, and signs with pricing.
How It Works
We have two options for your event:
1. A volunteer from your organization will pick up the books and sales kit, sell the books, and return the kit and extra books once the sale is over. Your organization will receive a 20% commission on all sales that exceed $200.
2. For large events with limited sales time (typically 1-3 hours), a Quail Ridge Books (QRB) employee can bring the books to your event and staff the sale.
We need about 2-3 weeks' notice to order books. If you prefer QRB staff conduct the sale, rather than your staff or volunteers, we need 4-8 weeks' notice.
For more information please see the attached PDF. To set up an outside sale please contact Kristen, our Outside Sale Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919-828-8777. We look forward to adding to the success of your event.
