Become an ESIP Meeting Sponsor

Why be an ESIP Meeting sponsor?

ESIP meeting sponsorship aligns your brand with an educated, tech-savvy audience of leading scientists, data practitioners, technologists and decision-makers who embrace innovation and fresh points of view. Sponsors show their commitment to collaboration,  increase their visibility, and have the opportunity to showcase products and services — and gain solid science credibility for being associated with ESIP.

Registration fees alone do not cover all the costs to running engaging in-person and online meetings. Meeting sponsorship is essential to provide the best events. Will you join us?

What is the ROI for meeting sponsors?

  • Build relationships with the highly technical and influential Earth science data community
  • Demonstrate product leadership and expertise, and acquire new customer leads
  • Receive logo and brand exposure with acknowledgment in key places
  • Meet and recruit high-level science talent, from early career to senior professionals

Sponsors can choose to provide general meeting support, fund student participation or host conference events, including workshops,  breaks and receptions. Below are suggested options; we can also tailor a sponsorship package for your needs.

If you are ready to become an ESIP Meeting sponsor, contact ESIP Executive Director Susan Shingledecker and fill out our sponsor agreement.

Custom ESIP Meeting Sponsorship for January 2023

Join the ESIP community in what it does best – building connections and sharing ideas through virtual collaboration tools. With the help of sponsors, ESIP is able to take our collaborative framework and open up even more space and opportunities for open, inclusive, and community-driven Earth science data.

In-Person Reception: $25,000 (Limit of 1)

ESIP does virtual well, but there is no replacement for in-person networking. With your help, members of the Earth science data community could gather in the Washington, D.C., area to connect, share ideas, and gather the social connections that ease and encourage innovation.

Research Showcase: $5,000 (Limit of 1)

Host the popular Research Showcase  event where our community shows off their latest research in a creative way, and gain visibility in one of the more highly trafficked areas of the meeting. Receive recognition with logo placement during the event and in introduction. 

Support for Students and Early Career Researchers: $1,000

Each year, a handful of graduate students and postdocs interested in bridging the gap between informatics, technology, and Earth science, and applying research to real-world problems are selected as ESIP Community Fellows. Your support covers their participation in the meeting and may be used to support additional early career researchers as well.
