Sponsorship Opportunities

AAUP's Annual Meeting is more than two days of educational sessions, exhibits, and networking events for the scholarly publishing community. AAUP 2015 will convene in Denver June 18-20 at the Sheraton Denver Downtown. Between 600 and 800 people are expected to attend. AAUP 2014 in New Orleans drew nearly 650 people and close to 800 attended AAUP 2013 in Boston.

Attendees represent nearly 100 AAUP member presses plus staff from non-member publishers. Press directors; editors; sales, marketing and publicity staff; production, design, and editorial staff; financial officers; electronic publishers; journals staff; IT Managers; library publishers; and more are all expected to attend.

AAUP is seeking event sponsors to help keep registration fees low and accessible to its non-profit members.

Why Become an AAUP Sponsor?

AAUP members collectively publish over 13,000 books and 1,000 journals annually. They also publish ebooks and are experimenting with new platforms, workflows, and dissemination strategies. Sponsor companies and organizations can garner additional exposure for their products and services while helping to promote dialogue and the exchange of ideas about issues in scholarly publishing.

Sponsors support helps the meeting in the following ways:

  • Sponsors provide networking events where new ideas are exchanged and connections are made.
  • Sponsors improve the meeting experience by underwriting technology costs, educational speakers, materials production, and more.
  • Sponsors support travel grants for junior staff who bring fresh perspectives to the meeting and develop their publishing knowledge.
