Sponsors

We greatly value and appreciate the generous contributions of our sponsors, who make the CSM conference possible. Depending on the level of sponsorship, contributors should expect maximum exposure and visibility in our program on our international website and through the delegates bags' inserts. Sponsors also have the opportunity to hold a half hour workshop, sponsor a specific session, a coffee break, or keynote lecture. We look forward to working with each of our sponsors to ensure that they receive an exceptional value commensurate with their generous level of support.

Awards Support
Student Symposium Award ($1,000)

The Canadian Society of Microbiologists is looking to expand its awards programs in the coming year. We would like to work with your company to create new awards that match your company’s priorities and CSM’s mission. The awards are an important part of CSM’s mandate to promote research and education in Canada, as well as recognizing the accomplishments of Canadian microbiologists. Candidly, an award in a company’s name is one of the most substantial ways to increase company name recognition among our members; these awards are listed on CVs of our members for the rest of their careers.

Several specific benefits of award sponsorship include: 
   - your company name on the award(s) and all award materials
   - recognition on the CSM website
   - recognition in CSM Annual Conference print materials
   - recognition in the CSM Newsletter
   - Free ticket for a company representative to attend the CSM President’s Banquet at the CSM Annual Conference, where award presentations are made.

Exhibitors

Exhibitors not only make a generous contribution to the conference, but also provide essential information and resources for our participants. Exhibits, poster sessions and lunches are planned for 3 days from June 21 - 23, 2017. For our exhibitors, we have arranged the locations of events to maximize contact with conferees. Exhibitors will be in the Physical Activities Complex (PAC), where all lunches, poster sessions, and sponsor workshops will be held. In addition, each conference attendee will participate in a passport system that encourages them to visit vendor booths in order to win prizes. Exhibitors are encouraged to participate with door prizes for the draw. Please contact Wafaa Antonious and advise her of what you are planning to bring for the door prizes.  Please refer to the floor plan, contact Wafaa Antonious and provide her with your first three choices for your booth location.  

Benefits

1) Logo on Exhibitor Page - To ensure maximum exposure all exhibitors will have their logo on the program and website exhibitor page. 


2) Booth at Physical Activities Complex (PAC) for 3 days - To ensure that exhibitors have an opportunity to connect with conference attendees, booths are positioned in the poster, lunch, and workshops area for three days June 21 - 23, 2017 in the Physical Activities Complex at the University of Waterloo. Exhibitors will be present during the duration of the poster sessions. These sessions represent a substantial portion of the conference activities, and therefore provide a significant opportunity to engage conference attendees at your booth.

3) Passport System - We have introduced a passport system to encourage conference participants to visit booths. Conference participants will receive a passport card that must be stamped by vendors, and can be entered into a draw for vendor prizes. 


4) Complimentary Lunch - A complimentary lunch will be provided to all exhibitors (maximum of 2 lunches per vendor. 


5) 1 Complimentary registration to attend the scientific sessions
