Thank you for considering CAA’s Annual Conference to promote your business or organization! CAA organizes the largest conference in the world for professionals in the visual arts. For 2020, we’ll be in Chicago, Illinois, where more than 5,000 attendees will convene in the Hilton Chicago for four days of diverse programming, packed exhibit halls, dynamic events, and lively debate. This prospectus outlines how you can connect with our conference attendees and ensure your business or organization gains visibility with thousands of professionals in the arts. See why global art suppliers, publishers, universities and colleges, foundations, magazines and journals, art manufacturers, distributors, digital-image resources, and other businesses make CAA’s Annual Conference a must on their calendars. Whether you choose to exhibit at our Book and Trade Fair, participate as a sponsor, cohost an event, or place an ad on our website or mobile app, there is a marketing option that is right for you. 

The Exhibit Hall is located in Salon A, Stevens Meeting Center, Lower Level, Hilton Chicago, 720 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60605. All conference sessions and meetings are headquartered in the Hilton Chicago, which will guarantee high visibility and heavy floor traffic for all exhibitors. The Exhibit Hall is open for three days, with over twenty-four hours of exhibition time. Every attendee—each a potential buyer—will consequently have ample opportunity to visit your booth in a relaxed environment. The Exhibit Hall has direct access from the high-traffic public areas where conference registration will be located.
