UIDP Sponsorships

UIDP offers sponsorship opportunities to organizations that want to increase their visibility within the UIDP community or help the UIDP meet its organizational goals.   UIDP sponsorships can be provided for a variety of activities and purposes; representative sponsorships include meeting or project support, or assistance for a specific educational program.    

Meeting Sponsorships

A small and strategic set of sponsorships allows the UIDP to produce quality meetings. These opportunities are limited to avoid over-commercialization of UIDP meetings, and the type of meeting sponsorship determines the level of acknowledgement.

Sponsoring the UIDP meetings gives you 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 content to the event, including panelists and keynote speakers

Meeting sponsorships can vary but are generally assigned at the following levels:
 
     Gold Sponsor – $15,000
 
     This level of sponsorship is for organizations that agree to host a UIDP event and provide the majority of meals, meeting facilities, and 
     logistical assistance at the event.  The support can be provided in direct costs or in-kind services/materials.
     § Recognition of your organization on the UIDP homepage
     § Ten (10) complimentary event registrations
     § 50-word profile and logo in the program materials
     § Conference signage

    Silver Sponsor – $5,000
    The support for this level of sponsorship can be provided in direct cash investment or in-kind services/materials.
                § Recognition of your organization on the UIDP homepage
     § Two (2) complimentary event registrations
     § 25-word profile and logo in the program materials
     § Conference signage

     Bronze Sponsor
– $3,000
     The support for this level of sponsorship can be provided in direct cash investment or in-kind services/materials.
     § Recognition of your organization on the UIDP homepage
     § One (1) complimentary event registrations
     § Conference signage

     Other amounts are welcome, and potential sponsors should discuss with UIDP staff to determine the needs for specific meetings/activities
     and which benefits accrue  with the planned investment.

Project Sponsorships
