Book and Information Fair

Thanks for your interest in displaying at the conference. The form at the bottom of this page will register you for a space to display your materials.

Only those registered to attend the conference should fill out the form.


Tables (which are six feet long) will be available for you to showcase your materials throughout the duration of the conference. Space is limited, so you will likely share a table with another exhibitor. Participants must also be registered to attend the conference; however there is no extra cost to participate in the fair.

Fair participants will be responsible for staffing tables and for securing valuable items during conference hours and after hours. We will have a room available in which participants may store their materials, but it is not secure.

Bulletin Boards

Posters will be displayed on a free-standing bulletin board approximately 43 inches tall x 67 inches wide (109×170 cm).


Our bookseller will have its own table and is planning to have presenters’ publications available there.

If your publication is available through a mainstream publisher, our bookseller will seek to have them on hand for the conference (don’t wait to submit the form below: it takes time for them to receive books).

If your work is self-published or is a print-on-demand title, you must ship copies to us or bring them with you.  In that case you can arrange for on-the-spot consignment with our bookseller, or you may reserve a table and sell the books yourself. When you arrive at the conference, see the bookseller’s table to arrange for your on-the-spot consignment if that is your wish.  The bookseller’s fee will be 40% of the sale price.

Shipping your materials

You can ship materials (e.g. posters, pamphlets, flyers, self-published works) to us at:

Neither the organizers of the conference, nor the University of Iowa, nor the College of Medicine will be responsible for the condition of, theft of, damage to, or loss of your materials. Return of your materials to you will be at your own expense and effort; materials left behind after the conference will not be kept.
