Table and Registration Fees for Book Exhibitors and Publishers

The 2013 ASLE Conference Publishers' Exhibit will be located in the Alderson Room of the Kansas Union, a large and attractive space located directly off the building's main entrance and the conference's coffee/lobby/registration area. The Union is the central building for the conference, hosting all the plenary sessions, the banquet, two coffee shops, and the central dining facilities.

Alderson is 2153 square feet and nearly square (44x46), and offers wifi, Ethernet, landline telephone, and AV. It can (and will) be securely locked during off-hours. For sample pictures click thumbnails below (please note, the pictures depict the room set up for a lecture; chairs will be removed and tables arranged suitably for the exhibition).

Full Table Rates:
Full tables are available at the cost of $300 each. Each full table purchase includes 2 registrations. Additional tables can be purchased for $100 each. Additional attendees will be charged the rate of $100 each.

Half Table Rates:

Half tables can be purchased at the rate of $175. Half table purchases include 1 registration. Additional attendees for half-table purchases will cost $100 each.

UPDATE: ASLE cannot staff tables for authors or publishers, and prefers that you send a representative. However, in response to several requests, we WILL allow unmanned tables and set up your books at the beginning of the conference and take them down at the end. We cannot ship books back to you, so they will be donated or given away at the end of the conference.

If you cannot attend and would like to display and sell a limited number of titles at a table with a representative present, please contact Mary Lynn Howe (mlh@scholarschoice.com) at The Scholar's Choice (http://www.scholarschoice.com).

Prices for unmanned tables are the same as for those with representatives due to our increased logistical/administrative costs.

Pre-Conference Shipments

Boxes of books will be accepted beginning March 31, 2011. Boxes should be clearly labeled "Books for ASLE Conference" and include the

Please be aware that KU and the conference co-hosts cannot be responsible for return shipping of unsold books. Any books that remain on display or in pre-conference storage after 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 2, 2013 will become the property of ASLE.
