If a person or group wishes to display information of a mathematical nature promoting a product or program for sale, they may do so in the exhibit area at the Joint Books, Journals, and Promotional Materials exhibit for a fee of US$50 (posters are slightly higher) per item. Please contact the exhibits coordinator, MMSB, P.O. Box 6887, Providence, RI 02940, or by email at for further details.
