In-Person Conference Sponsorships

Organizations can increase their visibility within the UIDP community by sponsoring UIDP meetings, regional events, workshops and other educational programming.

A small and strategic set of sponsorships allows UIDP to produce quality programming and avoid over-commercialization of events. Sponsoring UIDP meetings and other events provides an opportunity to:

  • Gain exposure to an audience of university and industry representatives
  • Make strategic relationships in an environment conducive to networking
  • Showcase your organization as an innovation leader
  • Contribute in a meaningful and appropriate way to the event (depending on the type of event and/or level of sponsorship).

Below are our standard sponsorship benefits, but please contact us to discuss how we can best help you achieve your goals. UIDP has also developed virtual conferences and events with a range of sponsorship options to help you meet your goals. Click to see our virtual sponsorship options.
