Will you be an Exhibitor at
the Author U Extravaganza?

Exhibitor & Sponsorship Opportunities

at the Author U Extravaganza 2017

The AuthorU Extravaganza is an annual event held in September. Throughout the year, AuthorU holds a BookCamp each spring along with a variety of meetings throughout the month – members can attend in-person and remotely.

All bring together a variety of authors and delivered with the quality that I’ve brought to all the conferences I’ve done in the past. AuthorU is based in Colorado, yet its membership is in many states. The Extravaganza welcomes authors from the novice to the expert.

There are a limited # of Exhibitor spaces for the Friday-Saturday (75% are now committed); the event runs from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm each day with an evening function on Friday night—includes continental breakfast, lunch, breaks and workbooks.

If you are interested in participating, you can do so with a booth. AuthorU is a huge supporter of its Exhibitors, maximizing your exposure. Please consider becoming a Sponsor of many of the Activities during the Extravaganza.

Author U is about building community with authors who desire to be seriously successful

Early Bird Exhibitor Cost is $700 for AuthorU members and $850 for non-members for the two days and includes meals (this will save you at least $300 in hotel related meals—dinner Thursday, Friday, breakfast and lunch Friday and Saturday).

This price is good until July 1, 2017. If there is more than one person in your booth or you are sharing a booth, there is an additional charge for the second person.

If you can’t attend, you can submit flyers at a cost of $100 (we will need 200). Set up will be on Thursday AM – you will be notified of the time within the month. There will be a buffet for Exhibitors to graze on along with attendees. Exhibits open on Thursday at 4:00 pm – and include dinner.

Extravaganza sessions start at on Thursday morning. The Deep-Dive Dinner Workshop starts at 6:00 pm and runs until 9:00 pm. Friday starts at 8 am. Saturday’s Exhibit runs until 1:30 p.m.

This year’s location is at the Radisson Denver Southeast, Denver CO. There is free shuttle service between Denver International Airport and the hotel. The AuthorU Group room rates are $119 through September 1st and then released if not sold out prior to that date – a discount from $209. Reserve your room at 800-HOTELS-1 or 800-468-3571 or 303-399-7500. (THIS IS THE LOCAL NUMBER).
