*** Background about the Online TSSP Newsletter and its Advertisements ***

Top and Mid-Page Ads: Premium advertisements appears as the top-most banner or the item below the news section.

End-Page Ads: A regular advertisement (or more than one) may appear as the final item(s) below the stack of news and announcements. There is no discount for multiple issues. Readers may have to scroll down the newsletter before seeing these advertisements. The stacked order of regular advertisements will reflect the time at which NCSS reserved them, with the earliest appearing above the next reserved, and so on.

Caveats: NCSS will add the words “Sponsored Message” to above your advertisement. NCSS reserves the right to refuse any advertisement.

Advice: Use static images for your advertisement artwork. Avoid using JavaScript in your advertisement links, as most email clients block JavaScript as a security precaution.

The Conference Program will be distributed to all attendees of the 2019 NCSS/NCGE/TCSS Conference in Austin. Advertising in the Program is the best way to ensure maximum exposure for your products and services, and to build booth traffic. The Program is the official guide to the conference, and includes the exhibit hall floor plan and exhibitor listings.

*Tabbed Sections Dividers. Tabbed section dividers are of heavier weight paper stock with a tab that sticks out and holds the place of a special position in the Program. Advertisers can put their message on both sides of the divider. The tab must reference the specific section it begins. The available sections are “Sessions,” “Exhibits,” and “Index/Maps”

Reserve a tear-out coupon in the back of the program book for attendees to redeem at your exhibit booth. Exhibitors who provide special offers, prizes, or gifts, experience heavier traffic and report better show results. Coupons are also a great way to gather more qualified leads.

Your offers will be printed on both sides of perforated, card stock—three coupons to a page—for one low price! Space is limited, so reserve your coupon today!
Fee: One coupon, $450; two or more $375 each

Black/white on front and back coupon with no bleeds
Size Image area/inches = 5.75 wide by 3.21 deep.
Perforated area/inches=7.25 wide by 3.58 deep.
