Annual Meeting Exhibits

Join us in Denver, January 5 – 8, 2017!

Since 1884, the American Historical Association annual meeting has been the premier gathering for historians to come together to share research and professional development, and to network with other scholars from across the world. Young historians attend to learn about the profession and their career paths. The Exhibit Hall is a major attraction for attendees seeking publishers for their work, procuring books for course adoption, finding new teaching tools, investigating the latest monographs, edited volumes, and journals, and exploring digital solutions.

The meeting will be held at the Colorado Convention Center, Hyatt Regency Denver, Sheraton Denver Downtown, Denver Marriott City Center and Grand Hyatt Denver.

Join us in Denver for the 2017 theme of "Historical Scale: Linking Levels of Experience," and productive networking with historians from around the world!
