2020 Tentative Exhibit Schedule &
Announcements / Registration Forms

books on exhibit by ABE

Since we do require typed registrations, our announcements are now generated in Word and the 2nd page registration is fillable. See the underlined exhibits listed below. Meetings NOT underlined will officially be added to the final schedule as soon as we have made the necessary arrangements on a quarterly basis. Announcements are usually available at least 2 to 6 months in advance of a meeting's opening day. Most meetings have been on our schedule for many years in a row. Please give us a call for further information on any meeting that interests you.

Publishers who are interested in a group of exhibits are encouraged to call ABE at 703-619-5030 to discuss a multi-show Package Deal Discount. Please see additional notes below this schedule.

Note: * Italicized and asterisked exhibits have been done in the past and are under consideration, but not yet confirmed. Italicized only exhibits we have decided against for 2020. Call if you have an interest. It is ABE's intention to present the usual wide array of exhibits during this calendar year. A number of these exhibits may not appear on ABE's final quarterly schedule. Please assist us in our planning by noting those exhibits that interest you the most. Busy times of the year, unusual logistical challenges or simple lack or interest all can combine to result in an exhibit being dropped from our final schedule. Please let us know about your entire projected participation.

Did we forget anything?

If there are exhibits you would like ABE to consider adding to its final schedule, please let us know. Many of our top exhibits have been scheduled as a result of referrals from the publishers we represent. Meetings taking place in the Washington, DC/Baltimore area are of particular interest to ABE. Please notify us of these “new” exhibit opportunities at least four months in advance.
