Sponsorship Benefits 

Being a sponsor at a URISA BC event has many benefits including:

  • Your company name and logo (linked to your website) will be added to the URISA BC web site (links on the URISA BC website will be removed 2 weeks after the sponsored event).
  • Includes option to bring a Company Banner (Standard vertical standing banner) that will be placed within our exhibit hall.
  • Includes option to participate in the Vendor Fish Bowl door prize.  See below for details.
  • You will receive 1 free pass to the event. Please review ‘Sponsor Registration’ information below for more information.

Vendor Fish Bowl 

How it Works:

  • Each participating exhibitor will be recognized for donating a prize
  • Every exhibitor donating a prize will be given a fish bowl with a label, recognizing them as a participant of the Give-Aways. Attendees will place their business card in the fish bowl to be eligible for the drawings.
  • Drawings will start at the end of the event and be presented by participating exhibitor
  • The conference staff will draw and announce the winner. The winner must be PRESENT, and if not, a new name will be drawn.
  • Business Cards collected will be distributed amongst participating vendors by conference staff.

Vendor Booth Inclusions 

For booth sponsorships, the following vendor amenities are available:

  • Includes a six foot table (with table cloth) **
  • Includes electricity
  • Includes two chairs
  • Internet access (available for a charge) ***

** There is room for a small display between the table and the wall.

*** Both wireless and wired internet access is available. However, in the past the wireless connectivity has been found to be inadequate for vendor presentation purposes. 

Marketing Materials 

In order to complete the event marketing materials, the following information will be required shortly after a sponsorship commitment:

  • A high resolution logo preferably in JPG or TIFF format (required for event posters, and placards).
  • A low resolution logo preferably in JPG format (required for the website).
  • The URL where you would like the web site to link to.
  • Optional: An additional URL to a company abstract page or a demo page.
  • Optional: A PDF of a company abstract.

URISA BC also welcomes our sponsors to provide door prizes which are awarded at the end of the event. If you are interested in donating a door prize, please mention this to the URISA BC vendor liaison when they contact you to confirm your sponsorship registration.

Previous Sponsors
