WELCOME SPONSORS, EXHIBITORS & ADVERTISERS!


At SIETAR USA we strive to keep the value and quality of our conference high and the cost low. An integral factor in our ability to do so are our partners and colleagues who support us as Sponsors, Exhibitors, and Advertisers.  It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your organization’s commitment to the valuable work in IC and DEI fields carried out by SIETAR USA members around the world, as well as making our membership and followers aware of the work you do that they may find valuable. The Sponsors, Exhibitors, and Advertiser packages are designed to provide high return on your investment—we appreciate your partnership with SIETAR USA and show it in the way we market your company to the participants at the conference.

Sponsorship is an opportunity to showcase your organization and gain recognition as a supporter of intercultural education, training, and research. By Exhibiting at the conference, you will be able to highlight your organization to an audience of many people who travel, read, use, design, and purchase products and services such as yours. Placing an Advertisement in our conference program as well as in our conference app, provides your organization with the opportunity to reach a diverse audience of intercultural and diversity professionals and students.
