AAC&U's sponsorship program provides organizations, nonprofits, companies, publishers, and others the opportunity to showcase their products and services while exchanging information with members of a higher education audience.
AAC&U provides exhibit and display areas at its Annual Meetings and Network Conferences. Instead of a separate exhibit hall, all exhibits are centrally located in high-traffic areas that serve as a "conference commons." These areas attract conference attendees between sessions and during coffee breaks. As a part of this environment, sponsors are encouraged to welcome attendees to their exhibit areas for discussions about their products and services.
AAC&U's conference websites also feature sponsor descriptions and clickable logos.
ABOUT THE AUDIENCE
AAC&U's Annual Meeting has drawn an audience of 1,800 to 2,000 participants in recent years. Approximately 75%-80% are academic administrators (deans, chief academic officers, department chairs, presidents, and others); and 20-25% are faculty members and higher education professionals.
The Network for Academic Renewal—which offers four conferences per year, two in the autumn and two in the winter/spring—draws approximately 350-1,000 individuals per conference. The General Education and Assessment conference is the largest, exceeding 1,000 participants in recent years. The typical Network conference audience includes approximately 40% academic administrators and 45% faculty members, many of whom are influential at the national level.
Our sponsorship opportunities differ slightly between the Annual Meeting and the Network for Academic Renewal conferences. There are a variety of sponsorships at several price points. Please see the links below for detailed descriptions of our sponsorship opportunities.

AAC&U offers discounts to multi-conference sponsors (organizations that sponsor more than one conference in the same academic year).
