Souvenir Book Advertising Rates – PDF Edition Only

Virtual Boskone 58 is producing a full-color, expanded Virtual Souvenir Book.

We’ve also added two new incentives for advertisers. Understanding the challenging times for our community, we are passing along the savings of having a non-printed book by offering advertising rates at reduced costs. Additionally, all advertisers in the Virtual Souvenir Book will also be given a Sponsor page (see below) on the Boskone 58 event website at no additional charge!
