Sponsor recognition signage will include your company name, logo, and booth number. $10,000 for this exclusive sponsor.
Registration Marketing Opportunities – You asked, and AERA listened. You want a low cost, effective way to market to our attendees.

This table for fliers will be in the same area as the program and tote bag distribution. $1,000, multiple available.
