Publisher’s displays will be located centrally and will be in a room which can be secured overnight. There is no charge for table space. Tables will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. Space is limited and publishers will be limited to one table apiece. The deadline for reserving space is March 12, 2014. If a press sends a representative to the conference he/she will receive a badge at no cost. Unaccompanied books and order forms will be grouped onto tables by student volunteers. Unaccompanied titles will not be returned; they will be donated to the student volunteers.
