ASTC Virtual 2021 Annual Conference
October 5–7, 2021

The Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) Annual Conference is one of the premier annual events for science-engagement professionals across North America and around the world. Each year, this event brings together several thousand science and technology center and museum and allied professionals working in science communication, STEM learning, and the broader intersections between science, technology, and society.

This year’s conference will be held online Tuesday, October 5–Thursday, October 7, 2021, with Preconference ASTC Intensives held between Tuesday, September 28 and Friday, October 1, 2021. The conference will again be virtual, acknowledging that even as there are improvements in the public health crisis, the road to financial recovery for individuals and organizations will be long. It also builds on the success of the 2020 virtual conference, which had the largest participation in ASTC history: more than 2,600 registrants.


Although we know the virtual experience is different than the in-person conversations you value at ASTC conferences, we have kept your needs very much on our minds as we considered virtual platforms. In particular, we have focused on technologies that will foster connections among conference participants and which will enable rich interactions with exhibitors and sponsors. We are optimistic that this year’s virtual experience will showcase your product, service, or organization to our attendees, maximizing your visibility and helping you secure more leads, new clients, and valuable partnerships.

Our attendees are the leaders and decision makers from the world’s cutting-edge science centers and museums, nature centers, aquariums, planetariums, zoos, botanical gardens, and natural history and children’s museums. They come to network, attend sessions, and learn about your products or services.

A detailed prospectus of marketing opportunities is now available. Please contact Kellie Shevlin at exhibits@astc.org for more information.
