The organizing committee of the 3rd Conference on Presenting Research invites you to send books to a book exhibit at the conference. We expect 200-250 attendees, mostly from North America. The conference will be held on August 3-5, 2011, at the University of Studies in Miami, NH. You can find more information about the conference at the following web site.
The book exhibit hours will be 10-5 on August 3 and 4, and 10-2 on August 5. The exhibit will be in a room adjacent to the registration area, between the two rooms we will be using for talks. The room will be locked when the exhibit is not open, and we will have signs posted throughout the conference pointing people to the book exhibit and listing the exhibit hours. Refreshments for conference attendees will be in the book exhibit room during the afternoon breaks on August 3 and 4, and coffee will be in the hall outside the book exhibit room in the morning on all three days.
The cost of a 5 foot table for all three days is $100. Additional tables are $75 each. Registration for publisher representatives is included in this cost, though we ask that reps fill out a preregistration form so we can prepare name tags. If you cannot send a representative, we can provide a student rep for your table for an additional cost of $150. If you want the student rep to take orders or sell display copies, please send a sample order form at least two weeks before the conference so we can see if we have any questions. An unstaffed table is also fine; we will have someone in the book exhibit while it is open to keep an eye on the room.
Instead of a full table, you may send up to three individual books for a joint book table, at a cost of $10 per book and donation of the book. You may include order forms or catalogs at no charge. Books from the joint book exhibit will be sold on the last day, and proceeds will go to the conference.
If you would like to send a single-page flyer for including in the registration packet, we will need 250 copies by July 15 at the conference address. This is free for exhibitors, and $50 for non-exhibitors.
The deadline for reserving space is May 25. We will send instructions to exhibitors by June 1 for shipping, return shipping, set-up, and take-down. Please contact Marisa Fetcherton at the following address or e-mail address if you have any questions, and use the enclosed form to reserve your space as soon as possible. Make sure to let us know who our contact should be at your press, and thanks for participating in our book exhibit!
