Thank you for your interest in sponsoring the 2023 APPAM Fall Research Conference! The conference will be a multi-disciplinary research conference attracting the highest quality research on a wide variety of important current and emerging policy and management issues. This year’s conference theme, Policy Matters: Making Public Services Work for All, encourages us to consciously and explicitly consider how social science theories and empirical research about policy design and implementation has a direct and practical effect on the lives of people. #2023APPAM will be fully in-person again. We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta this November 9– 11!

Exhibits & Lounge Space

The APPAM Exhibit Hall has long been the meeting, networking, and refreshment spot for attendees. Various special events are hosted inside of the Exhibit Hall, such as the welcome reception, poster sessions, morning and afternoon refreshment breaks, the headshot lounge, charging stations, lounge areas, and much more. There are now two great options for your to participate in the 2023 Exhibit Hall:

Booths & lounge pods orders will be accepted through Wednesday, October 25.

  • Booth – This is the traditional APPAM booth that will come with back and side drape, one to two draped six-foot tables, two chairs, and a small ID sign. Exhibit booths should be staffed throughout the open exhibit hall hours.


  • Lounge Pod - Can’t staff a booth but want a spot to meet with colleagues and have your logo featured prominently in the hall? Exhibit hall lounge pods are a hot commodity for attendees looking for a spot to network, catch up on emails, or to enjoy a quick cup of coffee before the next round of sessions. Lounge pods will be located inside of the Exhibit Hall and will come with comfortable and attractive seating for up to four people and a branded charging tabletop for your logo or ad of choice.
