Global Summit Sponsorship

Why Sponsor?

You won't find a better opportunity to drive awareness, visibility, and demand directly with the decision-makers!

The Internet2 Global Summit hosts nearly 1,000 C-level information technology decision-makers and other high-level influencers from the nation's top universities, government and scientific research organizations.

Sponsorship of the Internet2 Global Summit will provide unmatched visibility and alignment with your organization's target constituencies. No other promotional vehicle can single you out so effectively before an audience of this size and caliber. As a sponsor, you automatically earn a benefit package worth thousands of dollars—and special privileges not available by any other means.

Along with official acknowledgements, special signage and promotional strategies, sponsorship puts your company's name foremost in the minds of your target market, bringing with it industry leadership positioning, unmatched brand awareness, equity and promotional value—and the good will of your target audience, key business partners and prospects.

Sponsorship packages have been crafted to offer integrated, high-touch experiential branding with Internet2 members. Opportunities are available to fit any budget, and if your company has different resources, goals, or ideas for the expression of your brand, a customized sponsorship package can be developed to meet your needs. Sponsorships are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so act now to align with this group of information technology and advanced networking decision-makers from the research and education community.

To reserve your sponsorship today, and/or discuss a sponsorship package spanning a full year of Internet2's events, contact Taylor Kopocis, Internet2 Marketing and Communications Program Manager at tkopocis@internet2.edu or 804.822.1986.
