The 114th AAA Annual Meeting will cast common sense in a new light by making the familiar seem strange and the strange seem familiar. Common sense might also suggest that you make our attendees familiar with your organization. Anthropologists are a diverse group. Professors, department heads, students, authors, innovators, researchers, business people, and advocates will all be in great supply at the conference.
Exhibiting at the 2015 AAA Annual Meeting grants you access to thousands of educated consumers seeking the products that will expand their intellectual horizons. Entrée to this audience means access to their homes, universities, classrooms, research teams, advocacy networks, corporations, and beyond. It’s a ready-made market of new opportunities for exhibitors and attendees alike. The American Anthropological Association, dedicated to advancing human understanding and addressing the world’s most pressing problems since its founding in 1902, is the world’s largest professional anthropology organization.
