Annual Conference 2021

Sponsorship & Exhibitor Opportunities

Holiday Inn, Missoula, Montana | Sept. 27-30, 2021

The 2021 NAISMA Annual Conference is the organization’s 28th Annual Conference and will be co-hosted with the Montana Invasive Species Council.

The 2021 Conference will be a hybrid in-person and virtual conference. Both in-person and virtual platforms will provide exhibitor and sponsor networking including 1 on 1 meetings, and sponsor recognition opportunities. Thanks to our hybrid approach we expect nearly 500 attendees from a range of backgrounds in invasive species management from across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and beyond.

All in-person attendees will have access to all virtual content.

As the most-comprehensive, all-taxa, international invasive species conference in North America, this year’s conference sessions will highlight transboundary cooperation.

The program includes various opportunities to connect with the invasive species management community, including concurrent sessions, an exhibit fair, field trips and a silent auction.
