Sponsorship Opportunities

The 41st Annual Conference and EURASLIC Biennial Meeting will be held September 7-11, 2015, in Rome, Italy, hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The conference theme is Blue Growth: Motivating Innovations in Aquatic Information Management.

We expect an attendance of approximately 100 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.

This year we have identified the following four levels of sponsorship to address specific needs for the conference. Thank you for considering support of the 2015 IAMSLIC Conference!
