About the AUPresses 2023 Virtual Annual Meeting

The Association of University Presses is pleased to announce a plethora of sponsorship opportunities for our upcoming Annual Meeting—a flagship event for the scholarly publishing community. 

As part of its commitment to equity, justice, inclusion, and belonging, AUPresses has adopted a schedule for its Annual Meeting that alternates yearly between an in-person event and a virtual one. Following on a successful in-person meeting in Washington, DC in June 2022, AUPresses 2023 will be virtual. 

AUPresses 2023 will convene over two weeks in June—the weeks of June 5 and June 12—for a dynamic program featuring educational sessions, service demos, networking events, and more. 

Why Sponsor AUPresses 2023?

AUPresses 2023 offers a prime opportunity for direct access to and visibility with our members—and members of the wider scholarly publishing community—over an extended event. 

Our 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting attracted 1,100 registrants, representing more than 100 of our Association member presses, staff from non-member publishers, libraries, and higher education. Press directors; editors; sales, marketing, and publicity staff; production, design, and editorial staff; financial officers; digital and audio publishing managers; journals staff; IT managers; and a variety of other scholarly publishing stakeholders are among those who regularly attend.

AUPresses members collectively publish more than 12,000 print and e-books and 1,000 journal titles each year. Members are pioneering new platforms, workflows, and dissemination strategies, and are always on the look-out for new tools and efficiencies to support their mission.

In short, AUPresses 2023 gathers a wide ranging and engaged audience that you want to reach.
