Exhibits, Advertising, & Sponsorship
As the largest event in its field, the CIES Annual Conference draws academics, researchers, and practitioners in multiple disciplines—comparative education, international development, and global and regional studies—from all over the world. 

At CIES 2011 Montréal, we will make available prominent space and internet access to all exhibitors and vendors who are interested in displaying publications and other resources to our conference attendees and CIES members. Below you will find information about exhibition, advertising, and sponsorship opportunities available at this year’s conference. 

We hope that you will decide to promote your organization by supporting the Society and reaching out to the approximately 1600 people from over 100 countries across the globe who are expected to attend CIES 2011 Montréal this May.



EXHIBITOR INFORMATION
Exhibitors will be hosted in the Hochelaga 1 meeting room at Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel. This charming and centrally-located space is adjacent to the Grand Salon, where all keynote lectures and plenary sessions will take place. It will also be the site of daily conference coffee/tea breaks for conference attendees.

Exhibitor booth options, at a range of prices, are outlined in the Exhibitor Information Packet. To download this packet, which also includes detailed information about display guidelines, site specifications, space assignments, and customs and transportation information, please click on the link below:

PROGRAM ADVERTISEMENTS
Advertising in the official CIES 2011 Montréal Conference Program gives your organization instant recognition and exposure.  Each attendee receives a copy of the program, which is the source for information about every activity, session, and event that takes place on and off the conference site.  Additionally, the program remains a year-round reference after the conference, providing you added exposure to the non-attendee audience.

Ads will be accepted in .PDF format only, preferably saved as “PDF/X-1a:2001” to assure the best print quality ad; “Press Quality” or “High Quality” PDF is also acceptable.  If you are importing images (photos or logos), they should be at minimum 300 dpi.  Please keep in mind that all ads will be printed in black and white.
