You will notice that the ASA has made some exciting changes to our Exhibit Hall this year. The ASA has teamed up with an organization called Sponsorship Boost to expand our exhibitor and sponsorship audience and to improve the overall effectiveness of our Exhibit Hall. Sponsorship Boost has more than 20 years of experience working with Associations, including other Learned Societies, on sponsorships, exhibits, and advertising. Sponsorship Boost brings us expertise on how to ensure that you, our exhibitors, get the most out of your participation in our Annual Meeting.
Some of the innovations in this year’s Exhibit Hall include:
1) The ability for exhibitors to select a specific premium ($1100) or standard ($900) booth on the floor plan
2) New booth/advertising packages with discounted rates!
– Platinum Premier Package (2 Premium Booths + 2 Full-page ads + Post-conference Mailing List)-$2880 (20% off!)
– Gold Premier Package (1 Premium Booth + 1 Full-page ad)- $1620 (10% off!)
– Gold Standard Package (1 Standard Booth + 1 Full-page ad)-$1440 (10% off!)
– Display Table Package (1 6ft Display Table + 1 Full-page ad)- $840 (10% off!)
3) The introduction of new “table displays” ($550) for non-profits and Africa-based publishers and book stores Subject to ASA approval (Please note that only six tabletops are available.)
4) Improved floor-plan to increase traffic to booths
