Two Hundred and Twenty-Seventh Meeting

The 227th Meeting of the AOS will be held Friday, March 17–Monday, March 20, 2017, in Los Angeles, California USA, at the Omni Los Angeles Hotel at California Plaza, 251 South Olive Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 USA. Publishers and vendors who plan to mount book exhibits at the Annual Meeting of the American Oriental Society may choose from two options:

1. Publishers and vendors may mount their own exhibits. In this case the cost for exhibit space is $250 per 8′ table (payable to the AOS in advance of the meeting). We shall send an invoice for payment for exhibit space upon request. 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 at a discount. We provide the exhibit space and equipment (tables, chairs, etc.).

To reserve exhibit space and request an invoice for payment, please email the Office of the Secretary:
