Total Sponsorship Value

We appreciate that different institutions all have different needs. That is why we offer to calculate your sponsorship level based on your total sponsorship value. For example a Bronze Sponsor ($1,250) that also sponsored a Coffee Break ($1,500) will be considered a Silver Sponsor because the total sponsorship was $2,750.

Sponsorship level adjustments will be made after your sponsorship registration has been placed.
