Exhibitor options for all 2020 meetings

NEW FOR 2020

  • Special, one-time 50% discount on tables at the 2020 Central Division meeting
  • Shared tables—For those who do not need much space, we now offer 1/3, unstaffed tables for meeting sponsors. This option does not include exhibitor badges. If you intend to have a representative at your booth, you will need to register them for the meeting—contact Mike Morris.
  • General book table—if you have only one to three items to display, you can include them on our general book display table for $60.

The APA divisional meetings offer great ways to increase your visibility within the philosophical community. Exhibiting with one or more tables includes the following benefits:

  • Your name/logo will appear on signage throughout the meeting space and exhibit area at each of the meetings.
  • Your name/logo will be printed on the hugely popular tote bags that registered attendees receive when they pick up their name badges at the meeting
  • Your name/logo will appear on the meeting page on the APA meeting website.
  • Your name/logo will appear on signage at the coffee breaks in the exhibit area, indicating that the APA is able to offer the coffee break thanks to exhibitors and sponsors.
  • Your name/logo, along with a brief description and/or a link to your website, will appear in the new APA-branded meeting app, which is made possible in part by APA exhibitors and sponsors.

Exhibitors can also choose from the same marketing options as event sponsors; see below.

Step 3

Logo submission: On the last page of your order form, you will be asked to upload a black and white version as well as a composite color version of your logo (more details on exact sizes and specs are provided on the order form). Your logo will be used on the APA tote bags, on signage at the meetings, on the meeting web page, and in the APA meeting app.

Once you submit your form, please allow 2–3 business days for your invoice to be prepared and sent to your email.

Payment options:
Once you have received your invoice, you can submit your payment by credit or e-check by clicking on the "Pay the balance due online" link on the bottom of your invoice. If you need to mail a check to the APA National Office, print your invoice out and mail it in with your check to The American Philosophical Association, Attention: Mike Morris, 31 Amstel Avenue, Newark, DE 19716.
