ASR will have a book exhibit space available for book publishers during the dates and times specified on the Preliminary Program. Book publishers wishing to reserve a display table(s) should send a check (drawn in U.S. funds from a U.S. bank), made payable to the Association for the Sociology of Religion, for $250 for the first table and $200 for each additional table by July 1 to:
James Cavendish, Executive Officer
Association for the Sociology of Religion
c/o Department of Sociology
University of South Florida
4202 E. Fowler Ave., CPR 107
Tampa, FL 33620
Credit card payments over the phone are also accepted.
Publishers requiring an invoice in advance of payment should contact the Executive Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org. ASR’s fee covers the book exhibit space itself (i.e., the tables) and the publisher’s registration for the meeting. All other expenses are the responsibility of the publishers. Publishers will be responsible for paying for their own shipping and the fee the hotel charges for receiving shipments (i.e., $5 per box during the 3 days prior to the event dates, $100 per day for shipments arriving earlier than 3 days prior to the event dates). In the event that the hotel charges publishers for the tear down of displays after the conference, ASR will pass those charges onto the exhibitors. Should exhibitors wish to ship out a package at the conclusion of the event, The JW Marriott has daily pickup with FedEx Air, or they may schedule a pickup time with FedEx Ground or UPS, both of which charge a package pickup fee. The JW Marriott staff will be happy to assist in bringing the boxes to the hotel’s shipping/receiving area at no additional charge.
Publishers should also inform the Executive Officer of the name of their representative(s) who will be attending the meeting so ASR can process their registration and name tags. Set-up of displays can begin during the evening before the first day of the exhibit and continue during the early morning of the exhibit’s opening. Take-down of displays is during the late afternoon and evening of the last day of the exhibit.
Exhibitors should note that neither ASR nor the JW Marriott can guarantee the security of any items in the display room(s), even though the space will be locked at night. Consequently, neither ASR nor the JW Marriott can be held responsible for the loss or theft of any items. Items of high value should not be left unattended.
