Information for Publishers

This year's annual meeting of the Business History Conference will take place in Frankfurt, Germany, on March 13-15, 2014. We invite publishers to participate in our Book and Journal Exhibit. We particularly encourage non-U.S.-based publishers to take part.

The publishers' exhibit is a combined book and journal table-top display, housed in an area near the meeting rooms to encourage browsing. We would be happy to receive one display copy of each book or journal you wish to exhibit, along with order forms, subscription information, catalogues, brochures, and other handouts.

We expect approximately 250 people to attend, primarily historians and economists. Members of the BHC have interests ranging broadly across the fields of business and economic history. The BHC is international in membership: scholars from the UK, many European countries, Canada, Japan, and Latin America will attend, as well as academics from several other parts of the world. The theme for the 2014 meeting is “"The Virtues and Vices of Business—A Historical Perspective.” The preliminary program has now been posted.

There is no fee for exhibiting books or journals at the BHC meeting, but we require exhibitors to donate the books and journals they send to the conference for our silent auction. There will be a fee for the display of flyers, catalogs, and like materials by publishers who do not display books and/or journals. Publishers may also elect to purchase advertising in a variety of packages and/or to sponsor meeting events. We offer the following:

Table-top display of books and/or journals,
plus any flyers, etc.
free, with donation of publications
Flyers and/or catalogs distributed on tables in book display (no books or journals provided)$100
Flyer insert in registration packets$200
Advertisement in BHC program$250
Advertisement in program and flyer in book display$300 ($50 discount for combination)
Advertisement in program and insert in
registration packet
$400 ($50 discount for combination)
Publishers wishing to purchase paid advertising without joining the display need not register. Instead, they should contact BHC Secretary-Treasurer Roger Horowitz, who can also explain sponsorship possibilities.

Please note that we cannot return books, journals, or any advertising materials to publishers. Therefore, please do not send banners, book stands, or other valuable materials; we can accommodate small table-top cardboard stands, such as enlarged jacket images. Order forms are encouraged, but we do not permit selling at the conference.

To assist us in planning, we ask publishers who wish to send books, journals, and/or advertising materials such as flyer and brochures to the table-top display to register, using the form provided.

Please submit your registration form no later than March 1, 2014. If you have questions about the exhibit, please contact Pat Denault via email.

This year, we have substantial storage space. Books and other materials for the exhibit therefore may be sent at any point, but should arrive no later than Monday, March 10, 2014. Materials should be sent via FedEx, UPS, DHL, or a similar service, with the shipping label addressed as follows:
