By becoming an NIWeek sponsor, you’re showing attendees, many of whom are C-level, that you support their opportunities to learn how they can implement the most recent advancements in design, automation, manufacturing, test, measurement, and control systems.Contact the NIWeek Sponsorship Manager
If your goal is to reach a captive audience of influencers whose companies integrate NI products, sponsoring NIWeek is a smart decision. Additionally, product vendors involved in control and design application areas who attend NIWeek every year represent the following interests:
Sound and vibration
As a sponsor, your company will be associated with the new insights attendees gain by networking with peers, industry experts, and academicians. These discussions can help attendees accelerate their careers, enhance their productivity, and deliver best practices back to their organizations.
You can find a complete list of sponsorship benefits by level in the NIWeek 2016 Sponsorship Prospectus.
Sponsorship levels are determined by the total amount marketing promotional opportunities (MPOs) investment your company makes.
With a minimal MPO investment of $10,000, your company secures a Silver sponsorship and receives benefits including branding at NIWeek, on the event website, in electronic communications, and in social media posts. A Gold sponsorship at $20,000 includes additional benefits such as track sponsorship and a keynote chair drop, and a Platinum sponsor at the $30,000 level receives expanded marketing exposure including keynote recognition. The Sponsorship Prospectus includes company benefits by sponsorship level.
A complete listing of MPOs can found in the Sponsorship Prospectus. Please note: Several of the MPOs are exclusive and many have limited availability; all are on a “first-come, first-served” basis.
