The SBL Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of scholars interested in the study of religion in the world. Each meeting showcases the latest in related research, fosters collegial contacts, and focuses on issues of the profession. One of the world's largest exhibits of books and digital resources for biblical studies is on display at the congress. At this meeting, scholars benefit from sessions on religion, philosophy, ethics, and diverse religious traditions.
The Annual Meetings, held in the United States in November, is the world's largest gathering of scholars interested in the study of religion. Each meeting showcases the latest in biblical research, advances education, and focuses on issues of the profession. The exhibit hall, with one of the world’s largest collections of books and digital resources for biblical studies, regularly draws over 5,000 people per day during the four-day event. Exhibitors are not restricted to books but can display other items of interest to our attendees.
The SBL International Meeting is held annually outside North America. It provides a unique forum for international exhibitors who are unable to attend the Annual Meeting or for those who want a more focused interaction with international scholars. The meeting normally takes place mid-summer and - depending on the city - draws between 400 and 1000 scholars. This meeting is usually held on a university campus and offers opportunities to display merchandise on tables set up in designated areas.
