 2020 SLATE Conference

 

Northern Illinois University Campus/Conference Center
Naperville, IL
November 11 - 13, 2020

SPONSOR REGISTRATION

The key reason why attendees come to the SLATE Conference is to establish personal contacts, network with others and identify new and emerging technology trends.  Being a sponsor at the Annual SLATE Conference builds visibility for your brand, connects you with educators and technology leaders, and gives you a forum to share your organization’s expertise. Aligning your company with this conference will win your brand valuable exposure to attendees from over 100 institutions around the Midwest and across the country.

The three-day annual event is an ideal environment for conference sponsors to expand business opportunities by participating in an ambitious, productive agenda that includes workshops, general sessions, keynote sessions, and networking events. Conference sponsorship packages combine exposure before the event and maximum impact during the conference. Sponsors will have the opportunity to connect with participants as they browse the conference floor and visit your exhibit area. The venue allows for a more intimate and individual opportunity to get to know the attendees and understand what they are looking for in a less intimidating forum.

 

Some sponsorship opportunities include a speaking role while others are focused on product branding. Custom sponsorship opportunities are also available (listed below). After considering your business goals, review the wide selection of sponsorship packages and select the one that's right for you. Don't miss this valuable opportunity to set your company apart. Contact the conference coordinator for additional information.
