Please join us at the 87th Annual Meeting of the Southern Historical Association! Exhibitor
participation is invaluable to upholding our mission—promoting research and interest in southern
history; the collection and preservation of the South’s historical records; the encouragement of state
and local historical societies in the South; and the support and promotion of history education at all
levels and in all fields throughout the region.

The 87th Annual Meeting of the Southern Historical Association will be held at the Astor Crowne
Plaza (739 Canal Street at Bourbon, New Orleans, LA 70130), November 3-6, 2021. Please note that
this year’s meeting runs from Wednesday through Saturday. This packet includes all of the details
you need to reserve advertising space in our annual program and booth space in our exhibit hall.
Our headquarters hotel is located on the corner of Canal and Bourbon in New Orleans’s storied
French Quarter. The exhibit space is amazing, bathed in natural light and lined on the long side by
the verandas that make New Orleans justly famous.

We are excited to announce that this year our exhibit space will feature our new 'SHA Public Square,' a gathering place for all things public history at the SHA, a place for historians in all lines of work—museums, teaching, archives, and more—to gather, learn, and connect.
