Our Sponsors, Exhibitors and Advertisers are of critical importance to us! We will be reaching out to you in the coming days to discuss new and different sponsorship opportunities, arrange refunds, etc. Thank you for your patience as we work through this process!


25-August-2021: As it turns out, the prognosis for gathering in person is not as good as we'd all hoped. Due to a significant uptick in COVID transmission via the Delta variant, your Board of Directors and Conference Planning Committee share the concerns voiced by many of you regarding an in-person conference as originally planned. With the health and safety of all participants in mind, we are currently working with the Omaha Hilton to postpone the conference to a later date (to be determined.) We appreciate your continued patience and support as we continue to strive for the best possible solution for all concerned. Thank you!


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.

The packages contain details describing the benefits and options for Sponsorship, Exhibiting and Advertising. To review the packages to determine your preferred level of support, please click here: Packages & Pricing
