Sponsorship

Corporate sponsorship of the annual NIPS Conference contributes to the successful outcome of each year’s conference. NIPS appreciates your support and participation and wants your sponsorship to meet the needs of your company.  NIPS will send a contract and the Code of Conduct; upon signing the NIPS contract and receiving payment, your booth will be assigned.  Access to the recruitment database and complimentary registrations will be processed upon receipt of payment.

NIPS Policy for Sponsor Events 

NIPS welcomes sponsors at the meeting and provides adequate space for them to interact with NIPS attendees. Sponsor parties during the NIPS Conference should be held after 7:00 pm to allow time for attendees to go the poster sessions. NIPS discourages corporate events that conflict with any official NIPS events, conference sessions or poster sessions. 

NIPS does not organize sponsor presentations at the Conference or Workshops and discourages parallel meetings organized by sponsors. Satellite meetings should be organized by sponsors immediatley before or after the NIPS meeting.

Information Required to Apply for Sponsorship

To start the application, it's helpful to gather some information up front. When you are ready, please hit the "Go to Your Information" button to begin.

  1. Company PO number. After you complete the application, you may send yourself an invoice from NIPS.cc for the amount of the sponsorship. If you need that invoice to have a PO number from your company on it, then you will need that PO number in step 3, the application.
  2. Will you host an event?  If you intend to host an event during the conference, you will be asked about the type of event you will host, your target audience, and how will attend. We collect this information so we can align our goals with yours.
  3. Branding.  Our sponsor page highlights your company logo, provides a link to your website, and displays a paragraph about your company.  You will be asked for each of these in various steps.
  4. Vector logo. We need a high-quality vector version of your logo in .pdf, .ai, or .svg format. This logo may be enlarged for a sponsor poster, so it is important that it be a high-quality image in vector format.
  5. Payment. Sponsorship and exhibitor payment is due by Oct 24th. You will receive an invoice during step 4.

Exhibitor Badges

Each person at your booth will need a badge to get into the exhibitor area. An Exhibitor Badge is free but only grants access to the exhibitor area and not the meeting itself. Exhibitor badges should be given to the staff who will be manning your tables.  Please enter the email addresses of those needing an exhibitor badge and press Submit Exhibitor Badges. Repeat for each person. If they do not have an account at nips.cc, a red X will appear after you type their name below. Please invite those without an account to create an account by sending them a Profile Create Request.

You may revisit the sponsor portal to add booth workers until November 20.
