Prospective Exhibitors

Become an #AAM2021 Exhibitor!

Showcase your products and services in a dynamic marketplace in front of buyers for museums all around the world.

AAM’s Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo is the only event of its scope and scale. It brings together museums of all types and sizes—from art and history museums to zoos and botanic gardens—to share ideas and make connections that are transformative.

Learn what AAM exhibitors have long known—that a presence at MuseumExpo leads to a significant increase in museum market share. MuseumExpo offers your organization top-level exposure to decision-makers across the museum leadership spectrum. Reach engaged decision-makers who are looking to you for the answers to current and post-pandemic challenges by sharing your products and services at the largest museum conference in the world. There is no better opportunity to connect with museum professionals who recommend, influence, and make purchasing decisions.

During a time of constant change and experimentation, we are planning for the 2021 AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo (#AAM2021) to be a hybrid event with a robust virtual program and an optional in-person add-on. The virtual meeting will take place on May 24 and June 7-9, while the in-person add-on is scheduled to take place May 9-12 in Chicago, IL.

2019 Conference Attendees by the Numbers

Beware of Hotel and Attendee-list Scams

It has come to our attention that scammers are targeting our meeting attendees and exhibitors, attempting to sell attendee lists and solicit bookings at unauthorized hotels. AAM does not rent or sell email lists to third parties.

Attendee List Email Scam

Unfortunately, emails offering to sell attendee lists from our annual conference are often sent by scammers impersonating the American Alliance of Museums. If you receive emails that propose to sell the American Alliance of Museums conference attendee lists, do not engage with the sender and delete the email.

Hotel Booking Scam

Large conferences, including AAM’s, are also often the target of hotel scams. Scammers call or email attendees and exhibitors, claiming to represent AAM and encourage customers to book rooms using fake promotion codes at a variety of hotels close to the conference venue(s). AAM and our host hotels will never send emails or place phone calls to individuals in order to promote specific accommodations. Any legitimate message to attendees will direct them to the conference’s hotel information page, where attendees will find secure links to our approved hotels.

If you receive emails or calls regarding discounted AAM hotel accommodations, please do not engage with the sender and delete the email.
