Conference Business Opportunities

This year's conference will be online--join us for this once in a lifetime celebration of ALL of Virginia's museums!

We are excited to share our 2021 Business Opportunities for the VAM Annual Conference.  We welcome any businesses interested in museums or museum professionals as clients to participate as an exhibitor, sponsor, and/ or advertiser.  For the conference this year, because it is online, we worked to incorporate input from our recent survey to make sure everyone has a valuable and memorable experience.  We want your business to be a part of this unique event, and we want you to have an experience that is meaningful for your business goals. 

Explore all of our options below, and if you have any questions, or would like more information, contact Jennifer Thomas, Director, at

The conference will be held online, using the Socio platform (you may recognize it as our mobile app from the last few years).  The conference will be a week-long celebration of Virginia's museums, from March 15-19, 2021. Watch for a detailed schedule of events for the week, coming in January!!

Conference Sponsorship Menu 2021

If you haven't participated in a VAM conference in the past, review our "Conference at a Glance" Fact Sheet for some general information about our exhibit hall and attendees.

NEW!  Additional Sponsorship Options

As we add elements to our online conference, we may find new opportunities for sponsorship.  Watch for these here.

"Swag Bag" Sponsor    $600

Each registrant will receive, in the mail, a small registration packet to help them feel more like they are engaged with the VAM conference.  As our sponsor, you would not only have your logo on items in the packet, but could also include your own branded item to share with attendees.

Thank You to Our 2021 Sponsors!
