A. Sure, you can query multiple agents at once. It’s recommended unless special circumstances make you want to contact one at a time.
So, yes, start querying agents now. As long as you haven’t signed a contract with agent when those conferences roll around, you can pitch reps then, too.
In terms of proper etiquette, you have the option to inform agents it is a “simultaneous submission” when you send in a a query, but you don’t have to do that. They assume it is unless you say otherwise.
