In an email message on Monday, March 22, Carlos Saldago, from the Society of American Archivists, announced the annual meeting will be virtual in 2021.
SAA will meet virtually for its 85th Annual Meeting in August 2021, rather than in Anaheim as planned. (Mickey and Minnie will just have to wait!) This was a tough decision, given how much we’d all like to be together. But it does give us the opportunity to build on our success in 2020 (with more than 2,400 attendees!) and construct the 2021 SAA Annual Meeting from the ground up.
What does that decision mean for our industry partners? Based on your feedback about “virtual expos,” we’ve decided not to offer an “expo” this year. Instead you’ll have the opportunity to craft a conference sponsorship to serve your budget and marketing needs.
Every industry partner who signs on will receive a listing on our “Sponsors” page (including your logo with a link to your website), as well as three complimentary registrations for the full conference and access to the attendee roster (name and email address). The fee at this level is $1,000. From there, you can choose from a variety of sponsorship “Add-Ons” to meet your budget and enhance your marketing message. See the list below.
As always, we’re delighted to work with you to develop a sponsorship package that meets your needs. Just contact Carlos Salgado at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started! We expect the conference to “go live” on April 15—and we hope to include your message on Day 1!
