Exhibit Hall

The Exhibit hall features 60+ companies.

The 2022 Annual Meeting will take place January 5-8 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.  Each year over fifty companies exhibit and the showroom floor is always expanding to welcome new international and domestic exhibitors and attendees.  We welcome book, software/technology, outdoor gear, archaeological supply, travel, job placement, and finance companies as well as educational institutes, field schools, funding and non-profit agencies. Additionally, we seek artisans related to the classics/archaeology and local destination crafts and goods.

This year’s conference will be a fully hybrid event with both in-person and remote attendees. Following our pre-meeting survey we are anticipating 1,500 in person attendees and at least 1,000 virtual participants. This year we are offering options for both in-person and virtual exhibitors as well. All on-site exhibitors will also be included in the virtual platform.

The Exhibitor Prospectus is now available.  The Prospectus has full details on exhibiting. We also offer the option to become a gold or silver level sponsor to increase your visibility on-site and through the virtual platform.  Neither organization will produce a printed program this year, but we will post information on additional advertising and sponsorship opportunities later this month. If you have questions or wish to be added to the distribution list for exhibit hall information, please contact Kevin Mullen (kmullen@archaeological.org).
