Advertising & Sponsorship

The 2022 AIA/SCS Annual Meeting will be a hybrid event. In addition to on-site exhibiting, we also have a virtual exhibit hall where university presses, booksellers, and others can present their latest publications and offerings and interact directly with attendees. We are offering additional ways for exhibitors and advertisers to reach out to attendees through the virtual platform. All meeting registrants will have access to the virtual meeting platform and app. To sign up as a sponsor, for a demo room, or direct messaging slot please complete the Ad/Sponsor Form.

Virtual Exhibit Hall

All exhibiting companies will be listed in our Virtual Exhibit Gallery. Each company will have a templated online booth including logo, contact information, video upload, book an appointment link, downloadable PDF materials, and optional live chat. We have a limited number of slots for Gold and Silver Level sponsors. Sponsors will be highlighted in the virtual meeting platform and through on-site signage.

Silver Level sponsors will have their logos included on the footer of most virtual meeting pages.
Gold Level sponsors will be prominently listed at the top of the footer and also be listed separately at the top of the full exhibit hall gallery.

Zoom Talk/Demo Rooms

We have a limited number of opportunities for exhibitors to reserve zoom rooms between academic sessions or in the evening. These can be used for any purpose such as book announcements, author recruitment, receptions, or special offers.

Direct Message to Attendees

We also have a preset number of daily messages that can be used to highlight your company, event, or program to all attendees. Messaging will be sent out directly to all attendees using the app and appear as a slide out ad on the virtual meeting platform.

There are many opportunities to promote your company at the conference. All sponsors are included on signage in the registration and other areas and listed in the official programs and meeting app for the event. Exhibiting sponsors will also be highlighted on their booth signage. Please contact Kevin Mullen (kmullen@archaeological.org) with any questions.
