Exhibitor and Sponsor Information

Information for Publishers and Organizations

The Association for Practical and Professional Ethics invites publishers, distributors and organizations to exhibit and advertise publications, programs and services to our community of ethics educators, professionals and students at the Twenty-seventh International Conference in Chicago, Illinois at the Hilton Palmer House Hotel, March 1-4, 2018. There are many options from exhibits with representatives in attendance to combined exhibits and color ads in the Conference Program.

Typically, APPE International Conference attracts more than 400 scholars, teachers, practitioners, and students who have special interest in the interdisciplinary areas that make up the field of Practical and Professional Ethics and many more who come to the conference for the National Ethics Bowl Competition held each year.

Those interests include, but are not limited to bioethics, business ethics, engineering ethics, environmental ethics, medical ethics, ethics and sport, media ethics, as well as ethics in fund raising, health management, government, law, and the military.

NEW THIS YEAR! New this year is the opportunity to advertise to undergraduate university students and their advisers who attend the International Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl. Each year, the top 36 undergraduate Ethics Bowl teams gather at the APPE Conference to compete for the International Ethics Bowl title. We invite universities, ethics centers and organizations with special interest in recruiting top undergraduate students to their programs or professional opportunities to send representatives and displays to the Ethics Bowl Career Night – which will be held Saturday, March 3 from 5:30-7:30pm. Cost for participation is separate from the Book Resource Room exhibits and is $100.

The registration deadline for exhibitors is January 20, 2018 or as soon as all exhibition space is sold.
