Exhibitor Hall Information

We would like to invite you to exhibit at the 35th Annual IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy to be held in Jerusalem July 6-10, 2015. This meeting will attract experts and researchers from Israel, North America, Europe and points beyond, approximately 700-900 participants.

The Conference focuses on exchanging information and ideas most important for genealogical research, and provides a special opportunity to promote your products or services to a targeted market. Based on our experience, Conference participants are very interested in discovering what is available in the marketplace. This includes books (new and out of print), maps, yizkor books, histories and descriptions of worldwide Jewish communities, archival materials, software, and research aids, Judaic, memorabilia etc… The Exhibitor Hall is always one of the most popular attractions at our genealogy Conferences as it gives attendees the opportunity to view and purchase publications and materials not easily accessible elsewhere. 

As this is an International Conference, the official language is English with some Hebrew lectures and translations. Although most publications will be in English, Hebrew or Yiddish, there is also a market for especially interesting or important works in European languages. 

Conference Venue: 

Ramada Jerusalem Hotel, Ruppin Bridge at Herzl Blvd.
