We are looking for local industry partners to sponsor this conference. The conference fees will be used to pay for some of the conference expenses; however, the majority of costs will be covered by the student chapters organizing the conference. By lowering the cost of attending this conference, we hope to increase attendance by local and international students. We have developed several sponsorship packages, which allow different levels of participation in the conference by an organization.

Sponsorship Packages

The following sponsorship packages are being offered to best suit your organization.

Additional Sponsorship


In addition to the packages above, companies may also sponsor an entire event during the conference. The sponsor would have their logo present in the schedule next to the event and will also receive special thanks during. The sponsor will also receive all the benefits in the silver package. For more information, contact the conference organizers at spieosa_rit@googlegroups.com.

We are open to coordinating with all our sponsors and are open to any additional involvement with IONS Rochester 2017. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
