SESUG Conference Sponsorship Program

Do you have a product or service that you want to promote?  Sponsorship of this well established educational conference provides an excellent venue for you to promote your company to hundreds of SAS System professionals.

SESUG conferences have attendees who come from a broad spectrum of business, government and academic disciplines.  They cover a broad range of backgrounds from programmers to analysts to researchers to managers and they provide a perfect opportunity for sponsors to expand their base of SAS professional contacts.

For our attendees, SESUG conferences are a learning investment - not to learn just about SAS, but about products and services that will enhance their professional lives.  For sponsors, SESUG conferences are an opportunity to meet a group of bright and dedicated professionals - a group of professionals ready to learn about how your company and your services can help leverage their professional lives.

Sponsors can enhance their visibility and contact with conference attendees by presenting a paper. Abstracts will be accepted from February 7 until May 2, 2011.  Papers must have technical content that would be of interest to our attendees and they must be selected by the section chairs.

Sponsors may choose to have a booth in the SAS Demo Room.  The demo room is a great place to meet with attendees.

Sponsors may choose to present in the Demo Room Theater.  Sponsors are guaranteed one twenty minute presentation opportunity and will be allowed to present more as time allows.  If you choose to do this, please register early so we can include your presentation information in the presentation schedules.  The deadline for this information is September 6, 2011.

We realize that sponsors want to make the most of their marketing and sponsorship dollars, so it is our goal to maximize your company’s exposure relative to your sponsorship commitment.  Please review the benefits chart below and don’t hesitate to let us know if you have questions or suggestions on ways to improve this program.

We look forward to meeting you at SESUG 2011!

   How Do I Register To Be A Sponsor?

Register online using the Sponsorship tab at Sponsorship Registration.

Register early to maximize your benefits.  Your company name will be added to our email, your logo will be posted on our web site and your ad will be placed in the conference program.

Full Payment and all conference program content must be received by September 1, 2011.  Some program benefits may not be available after that date.


   What's next?

After you register as a Conference Sponsor, we will send you a special code to register your waived attendee(s).  This additional registration step is necessary so we can prepare a package of conference materials for your attendees.

We would like to have your company logo and a short description of your company (100 words or so) for on our website as soon as possible.

You may want to begin thinking about what you would like to insert in the conference bags (pens, paper, ad...), a give away at closing session, and your ad for in the conference program.  None of these are required, but are available for you to participate in.
