AFS 2011 Annual Meeting Exhibitor and Advertiser Information
Exhibitors and Advertisers

The American Folklore Society invites publishers of materials of interest to folklorists in all media to reserve exhibition space at the Society's 2011 annual meeting, scheduled for the Indiana Memorial Union on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington on October 12-15 (exhibit days are October 13-15). 

Produced every year since 1889, the AFS annual meeting is the largest professional gathering of folklorists in the world, bringing some 700 folklorists together each year for professional and social interaction.  The 2011 meeting is our first on a university campus since our last meeting in Bloomington in 1968, and we expect an especially large and even more significantly international attendance.  Last year our group of more than 20 exhibitors found our meeting to be a lively, engaged, and productive setting for sales, acquisitions, and networking.

The theme of the meeting, on which presentations will be encouraged but not required, is "Peace, War, Folklore." This theme is consonant with "Making War, Making Peace,” the IU College of Arts and Sciences' overarching educational theme for the Fall 2011 semester, and it is likely that the larger campus and town community will participate in theme-oriented AFS events.

In order to increase traffic to the exhibit room, we will schedule several other activities in or in the immediate vicinity of the exhibit room, including complimentary morning and afternoon beverage service each day for exhibitors and attendees, an curated AFS thematic exhibition of poster presentations, and table-top presentations by a number of AFS interest-group sections.

All exhibitors will receive a complimentary listing in the AFS annual meeting program book, but we encourage you to send your message to meeting attendees by reserving ad space in the book. All exhibitors will receive significant discounts (between 30% and 80%) on the purchase of display advertising space, and exhibitors who rent three tables will receive a half-page ad FREE!!
