Sponsorship Opportunities

AAUP's Annual Meeting is more than two days of educational sessions, exhibits, and networking events for the scholarly publishing community. AAUP 2013 will convene in Boston June 20-22 at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center. Between 600 and 750 people are expected to attend. AAUP 2012 in Chicago drew record numbers—close to 800 attendees. And almost 700 people attended AAUP 2011 in Baltimore. Attendees represent nearly 80 AAUP member presses plus staff from non-member publishers. Attendees include directors; editors; marketing, advertising, and publicity staff; production, design, and editorial staff; financial officers; electronic publishers; IT staff; and more.

AAUP is seeking event sponsors to help keep registration fees low and accessible to its non-profit members. AAUP sponsors can garner additional exposure for their company's products and services while helping to promote dialogue and the exchange of ideas with issues in scholarly publishing.
