Conference & Attendee Profile
The AIA and APA Joint Annual Meeting is comprised of industry leaders who act as key decision-makers in the selection of a wide variety of textbooks, software, products, and services for their affiliated universities, organizations, and institutions, as well as professionals and students who use the hall to find information about new job offerings, shop for publications and products, and learn about field schools, grants, funding opportunities, and other non-profit organizations supporting the field. The conference brings together professional and vocational archaeologists, classicists, art historians, epigraphers, scientists, and anthropologists from around the world to share their latest research, network and learn about developments from the field.
To create a more interactive experience for both the attendees and exhibitor, the 2014 AM Exhibit Hall will be situated in the Grand Ballroom (East Tower, Gold Level) of the Hyatt Regency Chicago Hotel located at 151 E Upper Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60601. We invite you to participate in the AIA and APA Joint Annual Meeting, January 2-5, 2014 in Chicago, Illinois.
