  • Participate in Our Meetings


    We can help you reach your goals through many venues, such as exhibiting, corporate presentations, sponsorships, and advertising.

    Reserving booth space at AACRAO’s meetings is the perfect opportunity for savvy exhibitors to showcase products and services, connect with new customers, and renew existing relationships.

    Corporate Presentations
    A limited number of corporate presentation slots are available to companies and organizations, and participation is on a first-come, first-served basis. Although Corporate Presentation slots allow you the opportunity to sell your products and services, we suggest that you have a university representative co-present the session, or that you make it an educational session.

    Develop corporate name recognition, reach your target audience, and generate leads and sales.

    The conference on-site program is distributed to all conference attendees. Meeting participants depend on the on-site program to plan their days and navigate the meeting. The on-site program includes session and workshop details, room locations, and exhibitor information.
