Three anthropology associations (AAS, ASA and ASAANZ) are collaborating to put on an international conference in Adelaide, Australia, 11-15 December 2017, bringing together 300-400 anthropologists from across Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Commonwealth and beyond. The conference will include four and a half days of presentations and social events, in South Australia’s cosmopolitan coastal capital, Adelaide. ASA and AAS conferences have usually vibrant events, with the attending crowd always keen to buy books! The publisher space will be positioned close to the tea/coffee distribution and reception area, ensuring that this will be the space where delegates congregate, linger, and they won't be able to miss your presence. We would encourage publishers to come along and participate.

- We do NOT offer unstaffed displays - experience shows that you do not get to really market your company, but simply lose your stock. However if your company wishes to send he books for sale and would like to hire a local to do the selling, please contact conference(at)shiftingstates.info ASAP so that we can arrange this in good time.
- We do NOT offer insertion of ads/catalogues in delegate packs -- experience shows that the clutter in a delegate bag is quickly junked, and rarely into a recycling bin. Ads which are printed in our conference book will not be thrown away, and so will have a longer shelf-life; while this will also have environmental benefits.
If booking a display table(s), please email the following information:
- name of company
- number of tables and/or adverts you wish to book
- names and email addresses of any staff wishing to attend (for badge/access purposes)
- whether you require electricity at your stand
- any information you need to appear on the invoice we will send
Terms of payment will be 30 days from receipt of the invoice, and payment methods will be card payment online or bank transfer.
Email conference(at)shiftingstates.info to book your presence.
