Solutions Showcase


AAUP’s annual meeting and exhibit hall provides one of the few opportunities for AAUP’s publishing professionals to get broad sense of what’s new in publishing tools and services. This year, we’re making sure our members can get even deeper knowledge of some of those products. Welcome to AAUP’s first Solutions Showcase!

Do you have an innovative idea, platform, service, or product that will wow the AAUP community? Can you describe it in 5 minutes or less? Then you need to participate!

For the first time ever, AAUP will hold a session offering you the opportunity to speak directly to our annual meeting attendees in a lightning-round format with games and music to help energize attendees. This afternoon session will have no competing sessions, and we’ll be serving free beer, soda, and snacks.
