Book Exhibit

MESA’s Book Exhibit is another aspect of the annual meeting that attendees look forward to every year. The MESA 2021 Book Exhibit is the opportunity for attendees to see the latest offerings from publishers and organizations. The exhibit hall is centrally located in the conference area for attendees to visit the exhibit area during breaks and to meet with other attendees. Our spacious 10' x 10' booths give exhibitors ample room to display books and other materials. This year the book exhibit will open the first day of the conference when many attendees are free, before panels begin. We are also hoping to have one or more sponsored coffee breaks — please see our expanded sponsorship opportunities with special considerations for book exhibitors.

RESERVE NOW! Gold Sponsors given priority Booth assignments begin April 26, 2021

Gold Sponsors are given top priority of booth placement. Following those assignments, a lottery will be held for those who have submitted the Booth Reservation Form by 9:00am (Eastern) April 26, 2021. For this reason, MESA does not guarantee your top choices. Booth reservations received after this date will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Following the lottery, please check the online floorplan for booth availability. MESA reserves the right to make changes to the floor plan if necessary.
