Exhibitors & Advertisers

We welcome commercial, non-profit, and government exhibitors and advertisers to join us for the 2019 American Ornithology Meeting in Anchorage, Alaska, the week of 24 to 28 June. The international conference will convene more than 700 attendees from academic, government, nonprofit, and industry sectors. Exhibitors play an important role in our meetings and attendees will come seeking information about your organization and its products!

The exhibition will be located in the William A. Egan Civic and Convention Center in downtown Anchorage (where the conference will be held). The exhibition hall will be open Wednesday through Friday afternoon and will host all of the large networking events, coffee breaks, and poster sessions. All exhibits will be tabletop displays based on first come/first served selection after placement of sponsors.

Exhibitor registration includes one six-foot draped table and exhibitor badges for two individuals with access to the conference. Exhibitor badges include:

  • Attendance at plenary, concurrent, and poster sessions
  • Program book with session listings and schedule
  • Evening keynote speaker on Tuesday, June 25
