  • Reach an estimated 12,000 mathematics educators and decision makers who attend the Annual Meeting and even more online by advertising in the Annual Meeting and Exposition Program. Attendees refer to this program throughout the event, using it to plan their daily conference schedule and for special-offer coupons. They then take it home with them as a professional development and vendor resource book. This ensures your ad and coupon receives maximum exposure. Remember, the Annual Program allows you to reach a vital, engaged audience of mathematics education decision-makers—all at the same time.

Tab-divider pages will mark the major sections of the program. Printed on cover stock, the tab pages will lead off one of the five main sections of the printed program. These tabs are a perfect alternative to advertising on cover pages. By reserving either the front and/or back of the tab page, your 4-color ad will be seen again and again—during and after the conference—as attendees use the tab pages to locate the important areas of the program.

Reserve a tear-out coupon in the back of the program book for attendees to redeem at your exhibit booth. Exhibitors who provide special offers, prizes, or gifts, experience heavier traffic and report better show results. Coupons are also a great way to gather more qualified leads. Your offers will be printed on both sides of perforated, card stock—three coupons to a page—for one low price!
