Symposium Sponsors and Vendors

The Western Wing of the IAPPP is soliciting sponsors and vendors for the Symposium.

Vendors are encouraged to provide compact displays that will be attractive and interesting to the symposium attendees and may take the form of a 3x4 foot poster presentation that can be shown in the hospitality suite as well as in the main hall. Vendors will be provided with different colored name badges and designated space within the main hall for easy access of attendees during breaks. Vendors will be asked to provide a prepared Vendor Statement consisting of a brief bio of their company, their representative attending the meeting and a brief highlight of one of their products. The emphasis is on brief and if too long will be shortened. A member of the Symposium Executive will give the Vendor Statement from the podium by way of an introduction to the vendors. Symposium participants will be regularly encouraged from the podium throughout the meetings to approach and hold discussions with the vendors. All reasonable efforts will be made by the Symposium Executive to highlight the efforts and availability of the Vendors for discussion with attendees. At no point will the Symposium Vendors, be permitted to give uninvited presentations from the podium that solely extol their product offerings. Rather, Symposium Vendors are encouraged to provide technical presentations that are to the general education of the symposium attendees.

Sponsors of the Symposium have all the privileges of the Symposium Vendors described below and in addition will receive highlighted exposure in advertising brochures, symposium banners, symposium web sites, invited to give brief presentations on their company or product during the symposium, and may, at the discretion of the Symposium Executive, be invited to provide keynote addresses at planned dinners.
