MPSA is proud to offer a variety of opportunities for you to connect with key decision makers in the political science field at its 74th Annual Conference, April 7-10, 2016 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.  Introduce new textbooks, software, journals and other products and services to a diverse group in the political science field.  Put your name and your message into the hands of thousands.  Take advantage and increase your exposure. You may choose to exhibit, advertise or sponsor!  Each opportunity offers profound benefits. 

MPSA is an international academic association with members in the United States as well as over 90 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, more than 5,000 papers presented and nearly 6,000 authors/speakers.

With an exhibit hall which boasts nearly 14,000 square feet, nearly 50 exhibitors and over 5,000 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 which enables you to meet the people you need to know!  The exhibit hall is the center of conference activity and includes charging stations and refreshments.  It also houses the poster presentation sessions for the conference which adds additional traffic to the space. In addition, the Exhibitors’ Reception is a favorite gathering place for attendees following a full first day of meetings.

The exhibit hall is located on the 4th floor of the Palmer House.  The Exhibitors' Reception is held in the exhibit hall on Thursday evening. Please review the exhibitor packet to review all of the available opportunities in detail.
