Companies and publishers are invited to exhibit products and books relevant to archaeology and technology at the conference. Building on the theme of “Making History Interactive,” the conference will offer attendees options for hands-on or behind-the-scenes experiences both in the conference venue and in Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area. The last session of each full conference day (Monday-Wednesday) will be a 2¼ hour session devoted to workshops and tours. Vendors will have the option of running a workshop during one of these late afternoon sessions to demonstrate their technology or show its application to cultural heritage.
