Meeting Exhibitors Information
General Exhibition Information

The Annual Meetings, , held in the United States each November, brings together professors and students, authors and publishers, religious leaders and interested laypersons, to its venue each year.Co-hosted by the Society of Biblical Literature and the American Academy of Religion, the Annual Meetings focuses on the fields of biblical scholarship and research, religious studies, and theology.Attendees of the event will have access to more than 1,200 academic sessions and workshops.The Exhibit Hall features one of the world’s largest collections of books and digital resources for biblical study, as well as a vibrant networking space where attendees can present ideas to publishers, browse the latest publications, and connect with colleagues.
The SBL International Meeting is held annually outside North America. It provides a unique forum for international exhibitors who are unable to attend the Annual Meeting or for those who want a more focused interaction with international scholars. The meeting normally takes place mid-summer and — depending on the city — draws between 400 and 1000 scholars. This meeting is usually held on a university campus and offers opportunities to display merchandise on tables set up in designated areas.
The SBL Regional Meetings are groups of US members that meet annually, in the spring, with other complimentary groups such as the American Academy of Religion (AAR), the Catholic Biblical Association (CBA) or the American Society of Overseas Research (ASOR). These meetings tend to draw hundreds of attendees, depending on the region. They govern themselves autonomously and information on exhibiting and advertising can requested from the Regional Coordinators listed on the regional meetings page.
