The Exhibitor and Advertiser Prospectus for the 2016 Annual Conference in Washington, DC, is now available for download. Featuring essential details for participation in the Book and Trade Fair, the booklet also contains options for sponsorship opportunities and advertisements in the Conference Program and on the conference website.

The Exhibitor and Advertiser Prospectus will help you reach a core audience of artists, art historians, educators, students, and administrators, who will converge in our nation’s capital for CAA’s 104th Annual Conference, taking place February 3–6, 2016. With three days of exhibit time, the Book and Trade Fair will be centrally located in the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. CAA offers several options for booths and tables that can help you to connect with conference attendees in person. The priority deadline for Book and Trade Fair applications is Friday, October 30, 2015; the final deadline for all applications and full payments is Monday, December 7, 2015.

In addition, sponsorship packages will allow you to maintain a high profile throughout the conference. Companies, organizations, and publishers may choose one of four visibility packages, sponsor specific areas, events, and objects (such as the Student and Emerging Professionals Lounge and hotel room keys), or work with CAA staff to design a custom package. Advertising possibilities include the Conference Program, distributed to over four thousand registrants and press contacts in the conference tote bag, and the conference website, seen by tens of thousands more. The deadline for sponsorships and advertisements in the Conference Program is Friday, December 4, 2015; web ads are taken on a rolling basis.
