Sponsorships, Exhibiting, and Advertising

NCPH Annual Meeting event sponsorship provides an excellent platform to promote your organization, institution, press, program, or company and demonstrates to conference attendees your commitment to the field of public history.  More detailed information about purchasing a sponsorship, a booth in our exhibit hall at the Hartford Convention Center (which comes with two complimentary meeting registrations), or an advertisement can be found in our 2019 Marketing Opportunities guide.

Exhibit hall and advertising opportunities are now closed for the 2019 conference. Look for information on options for our 2020 conference in Atlanta this summer!
