Sponsor Opportunities

Sponsor, Exhibit, or Advertise at the Annual Meeting

The Mid-Atlantic region is home to more museums than any other part of the country. Showcase your firm, service, company, or non-profit organization to over 500 museum professionals by supporting the 2021 Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums (MAAM) Annual Meeting.

Sponsoring MAAM gives your organization visibility to a wide audience, and also helps Mid-Atlantic museum professionals make better informed decisions for their institutions.

Sponsor opportunities range from advertisements in our program to supporting furloughed museum workers. Sponsorships can also support Annual Meeting costs. Please see below for sponsorship options.
