Sponsorship & Exhibition Opportunities

Why Support the Annual Summit?

As a national conference supporting economic development experts from across the U.S. and Canada, the UEDA Annual Summit attracts more than 250 C-level and director-level professionals from universities, communities and for-profit businesses. The Summit provides an ideal venue for exposure to top-level economic development practitioners from across North America and beyond. UEDA sponsors, supporters, and exhibitors are critical to the success of the Annual Summit. Sponsorship and supporter investment brings high-profile attention and recognition to each sponsor organization. A variety of sponsorship levels and events are now being offered with limited availability. Securing these opportunities early will gain your organization increased exposure on registration brochures, the UEDA website and in our regular Summit communications. We encourage and appreciate your support!

All sponsorship and exhibition opportunities can be packaged into custom branding solutions to meet your organization’s needs. Opportunities can be packaged with year-round UEDA sponsorship and advertising that creates a full-service plan for the greatest impact with your target audience. For more information, download our 2017 Annual Summit Sponsorship Guide.

To discuss sponsorship opportunities or to begin your sponsorship package, contact Tim Hindes at (216) 200-UEDA (8332) or tim.hindes@universityeda.org.
