  • Hotel Door Drop

    Provide a custom piece for this effective and convenient marketing tool that delivers promotional material, invitations, announcements, etc. to the hotel rooms of AAO 2023 attendees. There is no better way to directly put your message into attendees' hands in San Francisco.

    The Academy's official contractor, Convention Communications, will:

    • Coordinate logistics with each hotel.
    • Deliver your materials to each hotel.
    • Be on-site to ensure that your literature is distributed on schedule.

    For additional impact, brand the door drop bag. One sponsorship is available each night.

    Benefit from the cost savings of a shared door drop service or explore options to deliver special items (with Academy approval) to hotel rooms.

    Materials will be delivered on your choice of nights: Thursday, Nov. 2 or Friday, Nov. 3. Drops are made to all attendees’ rooms staying in official Academy hotels.
