2018 Tentative Exhibit Schedule &
Announcements / Registration Forms

books on exhibit by ABE

You can print out or save our latest announcements to your computer by clicking the underlined exhibits listed below. (These PDFs are not electronically fillable.) Meetings not underlined will officially be added to the final schedule as soon as we have made the necessary arrangements. Announcements are usually available at least 2 to 6 months in advance of a show's opening day. If a meeting that is of interest to you is not now underlined, it probably will be soon. Most ABE meetings have been on our schedule for many years in a row.

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.

Registration Submission Instructions. Word Registration sample. Excel Registration sample.
FYI: Our announcements give you the conference details including deadlines & our ship to address. We do not need the form returned, but do need a typed registration so you may wish to use one of our samples above.

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 2018. Call if you have an interest. It is ABE's intention to present approximately 30 - 75 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.
