2016 Solutions Showcase
Additional support for the Solutions Showcase is being provided by Ingram
AAUP’s inaugural Solutions Showcase in Denver was a huge success. Check out the feedback from 2015 attendees:
“I did take away some highly useful vendor information during those presentations.”
“Fun way to end a very full day.”
“This was a fun way to get a snippet of what some of the exhibitors have to offer.”
“The Solutions Showcase was a lot of fun! I enjoyed hearing about the products.”
“Solutions Showcase - so much fun! Well done to organizers & vendors!”
“The Solutions Showcase was a blast AND I heard about some new things that I will follow up on to learn more. I likely wouldn't have responded to a cold call or email about the same things.”
So we’re going to do it again in 2016!
What is the AAUP Solutions Showcase?
The 2015 Solutions Showcase was huge hit, so AAUP will produce this successful event again in 2016. The 2016 Showcase will be modeled after "Let's Make A Deal" allowing participating companies to give a brief presentation to a large and enthusiastic audience. This afternoon session, scheduled for 5:00 PM on June 17, will have no competing sessions. AAUP will provide snacks, beer, and soft drinks and participating companies will provide brief (no more than three minutes), but informative and entertaining presentations and prizes (service discounts! ipads! gift cards!).
When and Where?
This stand-alone session will take place from 5:00-6:30 PM on Friday, June 17 at the Loews Philadelphia.
Who Will Attend?
Expect at least 400 people to listen and learn from you. Between 600 and 800 individuals normally attend the AAUP meeting. At least 100 AAUP member publishers are typically represented across all specialties including directors, marketers, editors, designers, production professionals, IT professionals, and journals folks. Academic librarians and non-profit scholarly publishers not often represented at other publishing industry meetings will also be attending.
