Welcome to the 2018 San Francisco Antiquarian Book Print & Paper Fair®! First of all, let us introduce you to our venue, the South San Francisco Conference Center. The Center is 21st century all the way. No more leaky roofs at older facilities. Interior lighting is excellent and the building is carpeted from the moment you enter the lobby until you leave. No pillars in the ballrooms. Complimentary wireless connectivity. In-house catering, and yes, we are serving drinks and pastries on set-up day. Free parking onsite! Location is just off Highway 101, 15 minutes from San Francisco, 20 minutes from Silicon Valley, 5 minutes from San Francisco International Airport. BART connects San Francisco and the East Bay via the South San Francisco and San Bruno stations. CalTrain station at South San Francisco. We have developed this floorplan to provide a variety of booth sizes and pricing within the Conference Center. All lobby and ballroom booths are shown as 10’x10’; hallway booths vary. See the Contract Addendum for specifics. There is no place in the Center where you will say “I’m going to get stuck somewhere”. Signage inside the facility, volunteers and staff giving directions in the new facility, and plenty of information on our web-site pointing dealers to their locations will insure that everyone has visibility. Every booth/space has its appeal, it just depends on what you need and want. Please keep in mind that ‘right inside the front door’ may not be the best choice. When Mr. Larsen’s Fair at the Concourse was acquired by Nancy Johnson Events, your fellow dealers were quick to point out to me that the ephemera and paper dealers wanted to be together and on the mezzanine — don’t move us! The next two events saw the majority of ephemera and paper dealers cluster to the back of the exhibit halls, and it has worked well. Baden and Oyster Point are ideal ballrooms if ephemera and paper dealers want to be together. Oyster Point also has the largest bar, drinks, and food service area! For dealers who want frontage, or who want a less expensive selling area (pricing dependent on square footage), the booths in the hallways are good choices. The hallways connect all parts of the facility. We are looking forward to 2018 and beyond in this venue! We know you will be pleased too!
