Conference Sponsorship Opportunities
There are many benefits to sponsorship of the CNPS 2012 Conservation Conference. First and foremost your organization will benefit from exposure to the wide range of conference participants and the much wider range of people and organizations to whom we market the conference. The conference expects to draw up to 1,000 researchers, land managers, resource decision-makers, restoration professionals, policy-makers, planners, students, horticulturists, active volunteers and members of the public from around the state and across many borders. Like the 2009 conference, we will attract international participation.
Sponsors are offered significant benefits including complementary registrations and workshops providing your employees with valuable technical training and professional networking opportunities. High-level sponsors will receive complimentary exhibition booths and complimentary banquet tickets. Sponsors will benefit from significant public recognition such as acknowledgement in pre-conference promotional materials and the conference program, prominent display of your name and logo on signage at registration, website listings and links, and much more.
If you pledge early (before June 1) you will maximize your advertising potential when we mail the Preliminary Program and Registration pamphlet out to 20,000 people and organizations. Sponsorship of this conference shows your organization’s commitment to conservation.

You may fill out a Sponsorship Form (109kb PDF) right now if you are ready to go! Many sponsors also have an exhibit booth at the conference because of the discounts available to sponsors and because it gives organizations extra visibility to 1000 or more conference attendees. Having an exhibit booth allows you to showcase the strengths of your organization to all conference participants. This year we will open the exhibit space up to the public for our Public Day Events on Sat, Jan 14th. You may find details for Exhibitors on the Exhibitors Sheet and to sign up as an Exhibitor please use the Exhibitors Form.
