Annual Meeting Advertising & Sponsorship

MESA’s annual meeting is the single largest gathering of experts on the Middle East. These are scholars who have been in the field, studied the people, and know the ins and outs and all the complexities of the region. They assemble each year to share their research and plan future collaborations, and you could have their undivided attention!

If your target audience is Middle East studies academics, you do not want to miss the opportunity to advertise, sponsor, and exhibit at MESA 2021. Take advantage of these advertising opportunities to make your company stand out. Questions should be directed to secretariat@mesana.org.
