The major shows attended by IPG are:
IPG also attends a growing list of specialized meetings such as those organized by the Museum Store Association (MSA), the Association of Partners for Public Lands, and the National School Supply and Equipment Association (NSSEA).
In addition, IPG attends various trade shows each year, many of which are associated with scholarly groups, such as the Modern Language Association, the Association of Asian Studies, and the American Sociological Association. Many of these specialized meetings and shows offer an opportunity to sell books, and all of them generate sales leads.
IPG takes 2,400 square feet of booth space at the yearly BEA exposition. The IPG display includes 10 x 10-foot booths, many fixtures on which cover posters can be mounted, and a large area for tables and chairs used by publishers for business meetings with customers and contacts during the show. Publishers can choose their level of participation and expense.
Except for the BEA national convention, there is never any charge to IPG client publishers when their titles are displayed at these meeting and shows.
