Two Hundred and Nineteenth Meeting

The 219th Meeting of the AOS will be held Friday, March 13–Monday, March 16, 2009, at the Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town, 800 Rio Grande Blvd. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104.

Publishers and vendors who plan to mount book exhibits at the Annual Meeting of the American Oriental Society may choose from two options:

1. Exhibit with Scholar's Choice, who runs the main combined book exhibit every year, and deal with them.

voice 585-262-2048 x.111
fax 585-262-2228


2. Publishers and vendors may mount their own exhibits. In this case the cost for exhibit space is $250 per table (payable to the AOS in advance of the meeting). It is responsibility of the exhibitor to manage the exhibit, including setup, security, take-down, and removal of discarded materials. We also request that exhibitors follow our book exhibit tradition of selling exhibited books at the conclusion of the meeting to those in attendance for discount. We provide the exhibit space and equipment (tables, chairs, etc.).

The address to which books should be sent for the 2009 exhibit is:
