What if you could connect with leading community partners, discover remarkable literary works, and network with the best and brightest scholarly minds from across the country and beyond, all at one remarkable event? It’s all possible at the Congress Expo, at the 89th annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences! Join over 8,000 attendees and visit over 50 exhibitor booths at Western University.

Located in the Congress Hub, Expo will be housed in the Western Student Recreation Centre (WSRC). It will be a hub of activity, with a dynamic event space hosting thought-provoking discussions, career presentations, book launches and book signings. Visit the Calendar of Events for more details.

Whether you are attending your association’s conference or are a member of the London community, all attendees have access to the Congress Expo, free of charge. Don’t miss this opportunity to develop your social network, add some books to your home library and purchase a Congress souvenir.
