Thought Leadership Opportunities

Take advantage of the exclusive opportunity to contribute to the science-sharing happening at the conference. Secure your place as a market leader or introduce new products or technologies through in-person address or recorded message, branded signage, subject-specific workshops, Tech Sessions, and more. These sponsorship options allow your organization to both support and contribute to the collaboration and knowledge sharing happening at the Meeting.

  • Plenary Session Sponsorship –  $10,000/per session
    These are our most exclusive opportunities. There are only three events where you can highlight your organization during one of the AFS Plenary Sessions. Sponsors are invited to run a short video (~2 minutes) or make brief remarks and will address the event’s largest audience. These programs are designed to be educational, celebratory, and focused. Many of our conference days are kicked off with a lively and well-attended Plenary Session. No other programming is scheduled against the Plenary Sessions. Benefits of Silver sponsors.
  • Scientific Symposium –  $2,500/per symposium
    A full listing of approved scientific symposia will be available on the meeting website. These opportunities are an excellent way to support specific topics or interest areas to your organization and the individuals showcasing their science. Benefits of Patron sponsors.
  • Tech Session – $2,000 (+ any food and A/V)
    These are unique events in a dedicated meeting room where organizations can showcase their products and newest technologies. Tech Sessions can be promoted in the meeting program or as invite-only options. These sessions are ideal for informational lunch-and-learns or demonstrations. These events are not the same as “Tech Talks” which occur in the Exhibit Hall area. Benefits of Contributor sponsors.
  • Workshops/Panel Discussions –  $1,500/per workshop
    These events are specialized sessions on pressing and current topics that allow you to reach a very specific audience. Benefits of Contributor sponsors.
