Thank you for your interest in exhibiting or advertising with MAPACA. Our annual regional conference hosts an average of 400 attendees whose research often crosses disciplinary boundaries, spanning presentation areas curated around genre, identity, media, history, and environment (find a complete list of areas here). We are committed to providing our attendees with access to resources that will further their scholarship and we appreciate the contributions and opportunities you provide.

We invite any regional, national, and international publishers, presses, and academic institutions to take advantage of our exhibitor and advertising opportunities. Advanced degree programs are also welcome to table with us.
