The COVID-19 pandemic transformed scholarly conferences as meetings and book exhibits shifted online. Virtual booths pushed marketers to develop new materials to reach scholars, changed conference sales, and impacted the discoverability of new titles. As the academic year nears its conclusion, this panel will discuss the view from here: a look at approaches and guiding philosophies that worked, as well as the new possibilities ahead: hybrid conferences, in-person marketing in the wake of a pandemic, and more.
Moderated by Anne Strother, Northwestern University Press
With panelists Julie Fergus, University of Washington Press; Kristin Kirkpatrick, University Press of Mississippi; Amy Lage, University of Nebrasksa Press; and Chase Strother, Indiana University Press
