The MOBIUS Annual Conference is a chance for MOBIUS members to come together once a year and swap ideas, network, and receive training. The conference is free for employees of Missouri libraries and affordable for those coming from outside the state.
What to Bring
- Your computer (and power adaptor)
- A surge protector or extension cord (labeled with your name)
- A notebook and something to write with
- Business cards
- A water bottle and snacks
- A camera or video camera (encouraged - send us the video!)
- Your cell phone, set to silent
The MOBIUS Annual Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia, MO.
The hotel is located off I-70 Drive SW in Columbia, across the street from the Columbia Mall. But maybe you'd rather have a map?
Holiday Inn Executive Center offers complimentary wireless internet access in all guest rooms, the lobby, and our meeting rooms.
- MOBIUS, through a generous grant from the State, can only pay for 1/2 of a hotel room for each guest. This means that if you do not share a room with another attendee, you are responsible for paying the other half which is $49.98 (Total cost for a room is $99.95 not including fees and taxes).
- The meals at the conference will be pretty substantial, but you will most likely want to bring a little extra cash for snacks and other extras. Note from the organizers: Some of us are vegetarians and made sure there will be options, but let us know if you have other dietary concerns.
- You'll want to have some dough for after-hours things.
Need something official to be reimbursed for your expenses?
The conference rate at the Holiday Inn Executive Center is $106.90 per night. The dates for the conference are June 3rd, 4th, and 5th.
