If you didnít 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 itís 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 data sales (Providence Business News suggested this new theme and explains it as follows: "Many of us are trying to monetize information in new and creative ways. Some of us have seen increases in circulation revenue. Many of us wonder about data sales (lists and other data and information) and how we are able to monetize that. We would welcome screen shots that itemize what you sell, perhaps leading to increased revenues from the data we collect, correct and manipulate on a daily basis. Or submit some text about data sales."). Please email that by May 31, 2014 to AABP Staff Associate Barton Ortberg at 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.

Address packages like this:
Attn: Guest (YOUR NAME)
AABP Winter Conference, 1/23-25/15
CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Hotel
Paseo La Marina 435, Marina Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco 48354 Mexico.


Please have 30-40 copies of whatever you bring.
