DSA2019: Opening up Development
The Open University, Milton Keynes, 19-21 June
DSA2019 Book exhibit
The DSA annual conference will take place at The Open University in Milton Keynes, and is likely to attract around 450 delegates, comprising both academics from development studies and practitioners and consultants from NGOs, think-tanks, government and elsewhere. The exhibits will be in the centre of the action, in the same space as the catering. The catering will be provided in 3 separate locations and so the publisher stands will also be spread across these 3 locations. All locations will guarantee a steady footfall throughout the conference.

How to book
To register for the conference including some exhibition space at DSA2019, please email conference(at)devstud.org.uk and specify the type of participation required (number of staff and display tables required); we shall then contact you with instructions on how your staff members attending the event should register in our system.
we do NOT offer unstaffed displays - experience shows that you do not get to really market your company and simply lose your stock. We would have to pay a student to mind your stand, so the cost would rise, and while very able, students are not trained in marketing and are not grounded in your company profile. Come along and meet your client base!
we do NOT offer insertion of ads/catalogues in delegate packs - experience shows that the clutter in a delegate bag is quickly junked, and rarely placed into a recycling bin. Ads printed in our conference book will not be thrown away, and so will have a longer shelf-life. This will also have environmental benefits.
