Hosting a Reception

To secure space for a reception at the hotel, email Donna Dodd.

Attending Sessions and Special Events

Book Fair Exhibitors do not pay registration fees to attend conference paper sessions. Feel free to grab a program and sit in on the topics of your choice. If exhibitors wish to attend meal functions and mobile tours, tickets are available for those individual events. Tickets are required for entry and may be purchased on-site at Conference Registration.

Display Only

If your company is not able to send a representative to staff your display, the ACSP staff will collect your boxes shipped to the hotel and set up your books in the Fair area on your behalf. Tables will be monitored for neatness and ease of viewing the materials by ACSP staff. Notify ACSP in advance with how many boxes to expect and which shipping method is used, otherwise the ACSP staff will not be able to track missing shipments of boxes not received by the hotel. Please follow shipping instructions provided by ACSP at  Books shipped to the conference without a company representative will not be returned to the publisher and will be considered donated books for the ½ price ACSP book sale on Sunday morning.**

Please prepare and send 200 flyers with price, ordering and contact information which the ACSP will gladly place on your exhibit table. ACSP staff cannot be responsible for collecting these order forms, but will encourage the attendee to return them to you directly.

Self-Published Authors

Authors without representation from a publishing house can display their books for a small fee of $25 per title. This is not an option for a publisher only wishing to send one title to the show. Order forms for purchase, and the display copy of the book will be placed on a co-op table with other participating selfpublished authors. Again, this option is not available to publishing houses. Authors not willing to donate these books for the ½ price sale should pick them up Saturday afternoon. **

Banners/Electricity/Internet Access

Banners may not be hung on the walls of the exhibit room, however a banner may be pinned to the skirting on the front of the table. Only standard electricity will be provided — and upon request. Internet access is available through direct purchase with the hotel. The ACSP will assist in making the arrangements, but billing for this service will be to the exhibiting company direct.

Donated Books for the ½ Price Sale

Books shipped for display without an attending company representative will not be returned to the exhibitor unless the exhibitor makes special arrangements for such service. The display books will be considered donated books. These books will be marked at ½ the published retail price and will be sold to conference attendees in the morning at the ½ Price Book Sale. Proceeds from this sale go toward student travel scholarships for the future year's conference. Each year we hope to build enough of a fund to bring 10 students to the next conference. Along with attending faculty members, students are future faculty and truly appreciate the Book Fair's offerings. Help us bring more of them to the show.


Exhibitors staffing their own displays will be asked to breakdown, pack up and secure their books prior to the ½ Price Book Sale. Anything they do not wish to take back with them can be donated to the sale, or for free give-away if so desired.


The Book Fair Exhibit Room will be locked by the hotel security each evening and reopened each morning upon request of ACSP staff only. No one except security will have access to the room overnight.
