Whether it is an advertisement in our print, digital or online offerings, or signage in the convention center, getting your message seen by conference attendees is a vital part of your exhibit experience. Becoming a conference advertiser makes your marketing dollars go further and last longer. Through advertising, you’ll enhance the attendee's conference experience, while increasing your company’s presence and impressions with customers.

IAHCSMM offers multiple opportunities for any budget that will help get you noticed and be remembered by conference attendees. We hope you’ll join us as a conference advertiser!


Advertising Print


One of the basic axioms of marketing is that it takes multiple impressions on target buyers to induce them to make a purchase. The more varied these touchpoints, the greater the impression and motivation to favorable action. Attendees who receive conference printed materials at check-in make a conscious decision to read it!

The printed conference advertising opportunities IAHCSMM provide are valuable resources that all attendees receive and refer to again and again as they navigate the Conference. Print advertisements are a great way to market to SP professionals, boost your exposure and help you secure long-term business.

Please note: to add a printed advertisement at the IAHCSMM 2020 Annual Conference & Expo, your company must be registered as an exhibitor on the expo floor.

Branded signs that stand apart from the subtle venue signage are much more distinguishable for conference attendees. Because of their highly visual nature, event signage provides plenty of opportunities to promote your brand, helping ensure your success at the show.

Conference signage is your most creative opportunity to incentify attendees to visit your booth, build recognition of your products or services, and market your company’s attendance at the show.

Please note: to add signage at the IAHCSMM 2020 Annual Conference & Expo, your company must be registered as an exhibitor on the expo floor.
