Reach Translators, Teachers, & Readers
ALTA fosters cultural and literary exchange between countries and languages through the art of literary translation, and provides support and community to emerging and established translators alike. Advertising in our digital and print program book, ensuring your name or logo is visible to both potential and registered attendees, or becoming a sponsor are great ways to promote your press, magazine, university program, organization, or service to translators, authors, editors, publishers, teachers, students, and others working in literary translation and international literature.
Secure any sponsorship by emailing ALTA Program Manager Kelsi Vanada at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since our first virtual programming in 2020, we’ve gathered a large virtual audience (~650 attendees per year) eager for literary translation community and support. This year, we’re planning a special day of virtual panels on May 23, called “Write the World: A Day of Translation.” (Don’t worry, our annual conference will once again be in person, from November 8-11, 2023 in Tucson, AZ…sponsorship opportunities for that below!).
Don’t miss your chance to reach this dedicated audience of ALTA Twitter followers (~11,000), Facebook followers (7,300), newsletter subscribers (3,000), and event attendees (~650) through one of the three sponsorship options below!
1) Social Media Shoutout ($100): Your organization/press/program/name featured across ALTA's social media in the leadup to our day of virtual panels on May 23.
2) Logo/Name on Branding ($200): Your organization/press/program’s logo (or name) featured on the platform for our day of virtual panels on May 23. Comes with a social media shoutout.

ALTA’s conferences draw around 500-650 people from all over the world to participate in sessions on literature in translation and the art of translating, and to enjoy readings of new works in translation. Our 46th annual conference, “The Place of Translation,” will take place online from November 8-11, 2023, in Tucson, AZ, offering sponsors a sustained exposure to an international audience.
Advertising in the digital and print program book, ensuring your name or logo is visible to both potential and registered attendees, or becoming a sponsor are great ways to promote your press, magazine, university program, organization, or service to translators, authors, editors, publishers, teachers, students, and others working in literary translation and international literature.

ALTA conferences offer a variety of featured programming. These special events draw the largest concentrations of conference-goers together, providing the best way to get lots of focused exposure to our audience. These collaborations are determined on an individual basis, and can range from $1,500 to $10,000. Featured sponsorships provide you with visibility at events such as our evening receptions, twice-daily coffee breaks, themed trivia night, cocktail receptions, and more. Your name/organization will be listed as the sponsor on all publicity materials promoting the featured event, as well as on signage during the event, and in a shout-out on social media. Sample opportunities are listed below.
Panel & Coffee Break ($5,000): This sponsorship gives you dedicated audience exposure during a conference session, plus a chance to display your books or materials during a coffee break—and most importantly, a dedicated networking opportunity focused on your group. Comes with two full-price registration waivers, a half-page ad in the program book, complimentary A/V, and organizational support from ALTA. For an additional $1,000, ALTA staff will design and program your panel based on your vision (working with you to select a topic, identifying and inviting speakers, etc).
Sponsored Panel ($3,000): This sponsorship gives you dedicated audience exposure during a conference session. Comes with two full-price registration waivers, complimentary A/V, and organizational support from ALTA.
Coffee Break ($2,000): Coffee Breaks are the primary networking event during the conference day. All conference attendees gather in this area, where there is coffee and tea provided during a dedicated 30-minute break twice during the conference day. This sponsorship gives you a chance to display your books or materials during a coffee break—and most importantly, a dedicated networking opportunity focused on your group, with lots of caffeinated goodwill from conference attendees.
Reception (starting at $1,500): The ALTA conference always features evening receptions after the day’s panels are over. By sponsoring this event, you can include limited programming organized or directed by your organization. This is a great way to spotlight a publication, organization, or celebratory mile marker. Actual cost may vary depending on the sponsor’s desired location, food service, A/V needs, and whether drink tickets will be provided.
The deadline for featured sponsorships is July 14, 2023.
Please note that all advertisements and sponsorships are non-refundable. Contact ALTA Program Manager Kelsi Vanada (email@example.com) for more information.
