Upcoming AABP Events

AABP exchange of Event Promotions

Welcome to AABP's digital Promotion Information Exchange (PIE). Submitted material from the last exchange has been posted on AABP’s website at You will also see this link in the upper right corner of the home page if logged in. You log in by entering the user name and password you chose. If you don’t remember those, click on, Forgot Your Password? to have them sent to you via email (or contact AABP Staff). AABP has designated participants’ online records so only they will be able to view and/or download everyone’s materials to print. If you didn’t contribute, you won't have access to view the material online.

Each quarter, a new PIE is announced. Once new submissions are posted, previous files will no longer be accessible. So it’s important that you view and download what you want before that quarter ends. We want all member publications to participate. Send your e-mail now to avoid missing the deadline.

Upcoming PIE Theme
For this exchange, we're asking for event promotions, A number of publications report that they have expanded their event offerings - more of you are trying different and innovative events. For this exchange, lets take a look at materials promoting a recent event in your market particularly looking for newer event ideas; different ways of doing the same old thing, or different events entirely - whatever you have. Share samples promoting any recent event in your market. Any details you can provide regarding the event in terms of attendance, sponsor packages, etc. would be great. Please email that by Nov 30, 2014 to AABP Staff at AABP Staff. You can also submit a JPG, Word, Excel or PowerPoint file with relevant content to be included, if it's less than 4mb.

Publications Display
A popular feature at the Winter Conference is the Publications Display near the registration desk. Given the challenges of mail and express delivery to Mexico, most publishers carry sample issues with them on the plane. That is recommended. However, if you are shipping, then do so by FedEx or comparable air service, and allow at least one week for delivery. Click here for the Marriott's memo with shipping advice.
