Technology Exchange Sponsorship

Why Sponsor?

You won’t find a better venue to experience, interact with, and be immersed in “what’s next”!

The Internet2 Technology Exchange, bringing together a wide range of technical visionaries to address the challenges facing the research and education community.  to share expertise in a forum designed to facilitate the cross-pollination of ideas and information. Together, Technology Exchangers advance the state of the art in areas such as advanced networking, trust and identity, virtualization, cloud services, security, high-performance computing, and storage, forge new connections between them, and reimagine the future of research and education. 

The Technology Exchange is attended by hundreds of technical leaders across many fields, allowing for intensive, topic-focused discussions and working meetings, as well as innovative, crossover collaborations. Bracketed by professional development opportunities—including workshops, tutorials, community gatherings, and innovative competitions—the core event comprises three full days of content.

Sponsorship provides unmatched visibility, engagement and alignment with this leading community of innovators.

These sponsorship packages have been crafted to offer integrated, high-touch engagement. 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.
