TMS offers you the supplemental tools necessary to build a comprehensive marketing plan designed to achieve maximum benefit from the TMS 2003 Annual Meeting & Exhibition. Even if you cannot exhibit with TMS in San Diego, you can still reach and influence our audience with on-site sponsorships or ads in JOM. Choose the additional features that best suit your needs. However, our special ad placements and sponsorship opportunities are limited, and exhibit participants are given the first choice.

The JOM Partnership Plan

JOM has earned must-read status within the discriminating community of metallurgists and materials scientists and engineers…and it is the only official journal of the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition. JOM consistently scores as one of the field’s most respected technical membership journals as measured by the prestigious Science Citation Index. Our journal is read monthly by approximately 30,000 of the world’s materials science and engineering professionals who require timely, accurate, and practical information.

As the official publication of the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition, special-issue advertising opportunities are available in conjunction with the 2003 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition. This includes the November 2002 issue, which will publish the preliminary technical program and exhibition “preshow” report, which many attendees use to map their schedules for the conference and refer to again and again. The February 2003 issue will serve as the on-site technical program and the show directory. It will be distributed to all attendees in San Diego. Exhibitors can save up to 15% on the standard ad rates in these special issues and will receive in addition, a free hypertext link from the JOM web site to their company’s site with each ad that is purchased.

Leading up to the meeting, many issues of the journal will feature extensive meeting and exhibition advertising—an ideal opportunity for you to leverage additional exposure. After the meeting, several issues will recap meeting events and technical programming—another set of opportunities to reinforce your message with our meeting attendees and readers.

Advertising in JOM is an optimal way to build interest in your company and attract more people to your booth. A variety of packages designed to support your marketing plan are available.

Web Advertising

JOM and TMS have a robust and very well established presence on the World Wide Web. Averaging a combined 500,000 downloads a month, the TMS web sites are universally recognized as a key source of information to the worldwide materials science and engineering community. The TMS Annual Meeting home page is annually one of TMS’s most visited sites, responding to requests in the hundreds of thousands.

You can sponsor any page on the JOM or TMS web site with a banner advertisement and your ad would be the first thing visitors see when users open the page. This is an ideal opportunity to establish brand recognition and cultivate interest among potential clients. You can also place an ad in the on-line meeting program, which is viewed more than 100,000 times. Your ad can be the first thing users see every time they open the program.
