seMC Corporate Conference Sponsorship

Sponsorship

The Southeastern Museums Conference is one of the largest and friendliest regional museum associations in the nation, representing twelve states, plus Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Known for its creative programs and exciting evening events, SEMC’s “all in one” registration encourages informal interaction between sponsors and meeting participants at evening events.

In Chattanooga, TN, we hope to welcome between 200-300 attendees to the SEMC Annual Meeting October 25 - 27, 2021.  SEMC serves all levels of museum professionals in primarily mid-size museums. Museum leaders in many different disciplines include directors, curators, registrars, exhibit designers and educators. Every type of museum is represented including art, history, historic house/sites, science/technology, military and maritime, natural history, and children’s/youth museums, as well as specialized interest museums.

SEMC’s Annual Meeting is the perfect format for businesses to directly reach museum decision‐makers. SEMC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization supported by membership and contributions. Sponsorship support helps to make the SEMC 2021 Annual Meeting an outstanding opportunity for networking
