Sponsorship opportunities

At the 2013 conference, we expect an attendance of approximately 90 librarians from key aquatic and marine research organizations and universities around the world. Sponsoring the conference is an excellent way to reach these attendees and promote your products. Our program will include scheduled time to visit the exhibits, which will be located adjacent to the main meeting room. In addition, the intimate size of our meeting provides ample opportunities to speak informally with attendees.

We have identified the following four levels of sponsorship to address specific needs for the conference.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss the sponsorship opportunities, please contact the conference convener, Sally Taylor by email at sally.taylor@ubc.ca or by phone at 1-604-822-6638.
