Exhibitors, Sponsors, and Advertisers

Since 1884, the American Historical Association annual meeting has been the premier gathering for historians to come together to share research, engage in professional development, and network with other scholars from across the world. Young historians attend to learn about the discipline and career opportunities.

The change in our meeting plans opens up new and exciting opportunities for sponsors and exhibitors. Within the next month, we will launch Virtual AHA, a suite of video and online content that will run through June 2021. Virtual AHA will include presentation and social components from the canceled annual meeting, a series of Online Teaching Forums and career development workshops, additional video content streams, and a virtual exhibit hall.

In preparation for Virtual AHA, we have developed new exhibitor packages that bundle virtual exhibit booths with significantly discounted advertising space in our existing print and digital publications: our Perspectives on History print newsmagazine, its online homepage and monthly email newsletter, and our Fortnightly News email digest. We have also developed new sponsorship tiers that include logo placement on Virtual AHA video content and on our website and ad space in the Annual Meeting Program PDF version. We encourage you to explore the available exhibit, sponsorship, and advertising opportunities here.

We hope you will retain the full funding you had originally budgeted for our annual meeting. We are confident our new Virtual AHA packages will provide you with the full advertising and networking value you expect from an AHA annual meeting without requiring the added costs of conference attendance. If you would prefer an option not listed in on our website, please contact us at advertising@historians.org, and we will work with you to craft a custom package that suits your needs. We will continue to update you as more specifics about Virtual AHA are available. If you do require a refund, or would like to transfer your exhibit reservation to the 2022 annual meeting, we will gladly honor your request.
