Sponsorship opportunities

 

The 40th Annual Conference and 2nd Pacific Regional Group (PIRG) Meeting, will be held in September 14-18, 2014, in Noumea, New Caledonia, hosted by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC). As such, the conference theme will be focused on the 40th anniversary of this unique association, international partnerships and open access resources within the Pacific region.

At the 2014 conference, we expect an attendance of approximately 70 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 (in US Dollars).
