Exhibit Opportunities

Exhibitors must provide exhibit staff. Publishers who are unable to attend, but wish to have a few titles exhibited should contact The Scholar's Choice. They will again be providing the combined book exhibit at our annual conference. Please contact Mary Lynn Howe by email (mlh@scholarschoice.com) or phone (585-262-2048 x.111) for more information.

Any individual authors interested in having their book displayed at the upcoming meeting should contact their publisher between December 13, 2013 and February 14th, 2014, and let them know they will be speaking at the meeting and would like to see their latest book included in the exhibit.  The Scholar’s Choice displays on behalf of the publishers and all requests must come from them, not the individual authors. If they don’t already have it, the press may request the appropriate paperwork by emailing Mary Lynn Howe at mlh@scholarschoice.com.

One table: $250
