Become an Exhibitor

The Historical Society of Michigan (HSM) hosts three annual conferences throughout the state: the Michigan in Perspective: Local History Conference, focused on the metro Detroit area each spring; the Upper Peninsula History Conference, hosted in a different area of the U.P. each summer; and the Michigan History Conference, highlighting a different region of the Lower Peninsula each fall. Each of these three conferences offers a multitude of exhibitor opportunities for book vendors, local businesses, societies, groups, and more.
