Dear BHC Members,


The registration for the 2019 annual meeting of the Business History Conference is now open! Please use the following link


The information below supersedes prior emails that may have contained inaccurate information.


You may register in advance for the meeting by 25th January 2019. Please remember that all presenters, chairs and discussants have to register for the meeting. The advance registration fee for regular BHC members will be $120, and for BHC members who are students registration is free. Non-members pay $160, and non-member-graduate students $35. More details can be found on the conference webpage. After January 25th advance registration will close and will only be available in person at the annual meeting for an additional surcharge of $40 in all registration categories.


Meal purchases also are available on the advance registration form. It may not be possible to purchase meals after advance registration closes.


The registration fee schedule contains an incentive to join the BHC if you are not already a member. BHC membership includes a subscription to our scholarly journal, Enterprise & Society, and access to special membership benefits on our web site, including the option to upload information on publications and other scholarly activities. Of particulate value is our Expertise Database, where you can create a profile with your publications and research interest. Anyone going to our website can search this database, but only members can include a profile; it is particularly used by journalists seeking expertise on particular subjects.

The conference will start with workshops on Thursday morning, March 14, and with a plenary session and reception on that evening. All papers will be included in sessions on Friday and Saturday. The awards banquet on Saturday evening will close the conference. There are no Sunday sessions. 


Please also remember to make your hotel reservation. The 2019 annual meeting will take place at the Hilton Hotel and Resort, Cartagena located at Avenida Almirante Brion, Cartagena, Bolívar, Colombia. Rooms (all suites) are $169/night single and $189/double occupancy (plus tax) and include a full breakfast. Lodging and other information can be found at the BHC 2019 webpage . 


Please do not hesitate to contact the Program Committee at for any further question. We look forward to welcoming you at our 2019 meeting in Cartagena!
