Festival Exhibitor Booth – Shared Table

Portland Book Festival offers exhibitors the opportunity to reach thousands of book lovers who are ready to buy their products or learn about their services. Purchase your shared booth below!


Note: Once payment is processed, you will receive an email receipt from Liz Olufson (liz@literary-arts.org) within five business days. If you have not received a receipt by that time, please reach out.

*Shared table price of $720 is for the whole table, for both exhibitors; therefore, split 50/50 a shared table would cost $360 per exhibitor. No more than two exhibitors may share a table. The festival will accept only one application and one payment per table. Shared tables are priced to accommodate additional festival overhead and administrative costs required to host multiple exhibitors at a single booth, such as Wi-Fi, electricity, festival passes, signage, etc.

Standard registration includes:

– 6′ x 10′ site inside PAM
– One 8′ table per site
– 3′ tall side walls & 8′ tall back wall, with black drape
– Two chairs per site
– Identification signage*
– Password-protected Wi-Fi network for vendors only
– Access to electricity
– Exhibitor listing in event program*
– Exhibitor listing on event website*
– Two festival passes*

*For shared tables, each organization will be listed individually in event program and on website, and each organization will receive an ID sign and two festival passes. Exhibitor festival passes will NOT include the $5 book voucher.

Registration schedule:

  • Notification of acceptance and payment processed no later than SEPTEMBER 30, 2022. Registrations are not considered complete unless a complete Exhibition Application form and full payment has been received. No registrations will be accepted after SEPTEMBER 30, 2022.
