MPSA is an international academic association with members in the United States as well as nearly 60 other countries.  Founded in 1939, MPSA is dedicated to the advancement of scholarship in all areas of political science.  The association publishes one of the premier journals in the field, the American Journal of Political Science, and hosts attendees at its annual conference every spring – the largest political science conference in the country with approximately 1,100 sessions with 5,000 papers and 7,000 authors/speakers.

Meet potential authors; introduce new textbooks, software, journals, and other products and services to a diverse group in the political science field.  The exhibit hall boasts over 40 exhibitors and 5,200 attendees.  As an exhibitor, you will have unprecedented exposure to the decision makers who plan courses and select textbooks.  Average daily foot traffic in the exhibit hall has grown to over 3,000 – meet the people you need to know!  The exhibit hall is the center of conference activity and includes email kiosks, complimentary coffee and poster presentations.  In addition, the Exhibitors’ Reception is a favorite gathering place for attendees following a full first day of meetings.

NEW THIS YEAR!  MPSA will be awarding raffle prizes during daily drawings.  This will serve to draw even more attendees into the exhibit hall!

The exhibit hall -- nearly 14, 000 square feet -- is on the 4th floor, three escalator rides up from the hotel lobby.  The Exhibitors' Reception is held in the exhibit hall on Thursday evening.
