Corporate Partnerships

Corporate partnerships are designed to give organizations high-value opportunities to present their products and services to the SBI2 community, both at the annual conference and throughout the year, whether through the Society’s digital outreach or regional workshops. Renewable annually, Corporate Partnerships are vital to furthering the educational aims of the Society and extending its reach to young researchers. It is anticipated that Corporate Partners will promote both their involvement in the annual conference and the annual conference itself through their marketing networks.

Three levels of Corporate Partnership are available:

                      • Founding
                      • Executive
                      • Supporting

Discounted conference passes are available to Corporate Partners for $250 (maximum 10/company). Additional benefits of Corporate Partnership are as follows:

Sponsorship packages

SBI2 offers three Sponsorship Packages. These allow companies to associate their brand with the Society and show their support for its mission.

* Every effort will be made to accommodate booth requests by Platinum and Gold Sponsors. However, SBI2 cannot guarantee that 8′ W x 8′ D corner or in-line spaces will remain available over time, and thus urges those interested in Platinum and Gold Sponsor Packages to apply quickly. Platinum and Gold Sponsors wishing different or larger spaces should reach out to david.becker@sbi2.org.
