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 July 2022

With the return to an in-person meeting the ESIP team is excited to invigorate our networking and social opportunities. We know that these were some of the most missed and hardest experiences to replicate in virtual meetings.

Sponsorship of these events will help us return to joyful and energetic networking! Our team is happy to work with you to incorporate your ideas.

Research Showcase: $7,500 (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. Please note the research showcase is expected to only have in-person access during the meeting with a poster galley available online. The research showcase will feature limited food and beverages.

Opening Reception: $10,000 (Limit of 1)

Host the opening reception allowing us to energetically kick-off the meeting. This sponsorship will help defer the costs of food and beverage. The sponsor will be recognized with signage and in remarks.

Coffee Break: $5,000 (Limit of 10)

We know that networking and sharing a cup of coffee with colleagues is one of the most missed elements from in-person meetings. Help us bring back the joy, the fun, the camaraderie, and yes, the caffeine and snacks by sponsoring one of our coffee breaks. Sponsors will receive signage recognition for this sponsorship.

Lanyard: $2,500 (SPONSORED)

Lanyard sponsors get their name around the neck of each and every in-person attendee. We use name badges to help identify Board Members, Committee members, Speakers, Sponsors, First Time Attendees and other categories.

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.
