Support and Promotional Opportunities

Why sponsor an ESIP Meeting?

Meeting sponsors align their 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 increase their visibility and have the opportunity to promote products and services—and gain solid science credibility for being associated with ESIP.

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

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

Custom Meeting Sponsorship Options for 2021 ESIP Summer Meeting Only

These opportunities can also be combined with one of the above packages.

Research Showcase: $5,000

Host this popular 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 in event platform and in introduction.

Support for Early Career Researchers: $1,000

ESIP supports talented young researchers by helping them explore collaborative new research projects at a critical early stage of their careers. Each year, ~7-10 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 will cover their participation in the meeting and may be used to support additional early career researchers as well.

Plenary Live Stream: $5,000

Our event plenary talks are streamed on days two and three of the meeting and made available on YouTube immediately after. Live stream sponsorship includes branding of meeting live-stream and recordings with logo, providing huge visibility.

Social Sponsorship: $3,000

Host one of our meeting social events such as a coffee break or evening Happy Hour. ESIP uses a state-of-the-art spatial chat platform that enables effective networking and small conversations. Your logo will be featured in the agenda and the networking space and you will have the opportunity to make a broadcast announcement or introduction to all participants. Alternatively we welcome brainstorming with the ESIP team creative and interactive ways to achieve the fun and camaraderie of an ESIP meeting in a virtual space. This could be a virtual Trivia Competition with teams, a virtual happy hour, art reception, open mic. We would be happy to work with you to develop something fun and productive.

FUNding Friday: $5,000

Want to fund a creative and ambitious idea, and advance the use of Earth data science at the same time? The ESIP community has novel, experimental projects that need a small amount of funding, which can be difficult to fund through traditional funding mechanisms. The ESIP FUNding Friday competition is an internal funding opportunity that provides micro-grants to between six and eight researchers and students per year. These projects result in new collaborations and community engagement, and improve the use of Earth and environmental science data. Browse past grants to see what we mean.
