MAA MathFest is the largest annual summertime gathering of mathematicians. In 2013, MAA MathFest offered all of the great sessions that you have come to expect from the conference: Invited Addresses, Invited Paper Sessions, a Short Course, Contributed Paper Sessions, Minicourses and more.
This is a wonderful meeting of our close-knit community of mathematicians who are interested in the advancement of mathematics, particularly at the collegiate level. Participants include mathematicians, professors, students, and math enthusiasts who come year after year to reconnect with colleagues, learn how to invigorate their curricula and techniques, see what's new in teaching and learning resources, and share their expertise and love of math.
MAA MathFest offers exhibitors and sponsors an excellent opportunity to generate brand awareness, lead generation, and product sales among the mathematical community. Last year, MAA MathFest attracted more than 1,500 attendees. Sessions included noted speakers, contributed paper lectures, minicourses, and student activities.
Your support of MAA MathFest will reach the most dynamic members of our community, including pioneers in the field of mathematics, educators, students, and applied mathematicians from the world of business. There are a variety of ways that your organization can be a part of this four-day event. Whether you hope to target academic faculty, undergraduate or graduate students, or any other group, there is an option available to meet your needs.
