The deadline has been extended to Friday, Dec. 4 to reserve your organization's spot in the inaugural Drilling and Blasting Marketplace that will be featured in the January/February 2021 issue of the Journal of Explosives Engineering. With ISEE’s conference cancelation, we wanted to provide an opportunity for companies that typically exhibit to advertise new or existing products and services all in one place.

This is open to all companies interested in reaching ISEE members and other key explosives industry leaders. All ads and website links will be included in both the print and digital editions of the Journal of Explosives Engineering.

Each ad will be sized to 1/6 page. Advertisers needing more space can purchase additional space in 1/6 page increments. Ad copy should be approximately 50 words per ad. ISEE will design the ad for you to keep formatting consistent. Please provide 50 words, a color logo, and a photo. Photos and logos should be high resolution and at least 300dpi.

If you or your organization would like to showcase your products or services, fill out the attached order form. For more information, contact Dede Manross, ISEE director of communications, at 801.942.5650 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
