Why sponsor an ESIP Meeting?

Meeting sponsors align their brand with an educated, tech-savvy audience of leading scientists, data practitioners, technologists and decision-makers who embrace innovation and fresh points of view. Sponsors increase their visibility and have the opportunity to promote products and services—and gain solid science credibility for being associated with ESIP.

By supporting ESIP meetings, sponsors:

  • Build relationships with the highly technical and influential Earth science data community
  • Demonstrate product leadership and expertise, and acquire new customer leads
  • Receive logo and brand exposure with acknowledgement in key places
  • Meet and recruit high-level science talent

Sponsors can choose to provide general meeting support, fund student participation or host conference events, including hackathons, breaks and receptions. Below are suggested options; we can also tailor a sponsorship package for your needs.

If you would like more information about sponsoring an ESIP meeting, contact Erin Robinson, Executive Director: erinrobinson@esipfed.org or (314) 369-9954.

If you are ready to sponsor our next meeting, please fill out our sponsor agreement to get started.

Custom Meeting Sponsorship Options

These opportunities can also be combined with one of the above packages.

Research as Art: $5,000

Host this popular evening event on Wednesday, July 20 where our community shows off their latest research in a creative way, and gain visibility in one of the more highly trafficked areas of the meeting. Includes branding on food and drink stations and prominently placed signage.

Plenary Live Stream: $7,500

Our event plenary talks are streamed on days two and three of the meeting and made available on YouTube immediately after. Live stream sponsorship includes branding of meeting live-stream and recordings with logo, providing huge visibility.

Travel Fellowships for Early Career Researchers: $2,000

ESIP supports talented young researchers by helping them explore collaborative new research projects at a critical early stage of their careers. Each year, six graduate students and postdocs interested in bridging the gap between informatics, technology, and Earth science and applying research to real-world problems are selected as ESIP Student Fellows. Travel fellowships cover registration, lodging and travel expenses for the fellows.

FUNding Friday: $1,500

Want to fund a creative and ambitious idea, and advance the use of Earth data science at the same time? The ESIP community has novel, experimental projects that need a small amount of funding, which can be difficult to fund through traditional funding mechanisms. The ESIP FUNding Friday competition is an internal funding opportunity that provides micro-grants to between six and eight researchers and students per year. These projects result in new collaborations and community engagement, and improve the use of Earth and environmental science data. Browse past grants to see what we mean.

Lanyard: $1,500—Sold out!

Gain high visibility with your branded lanyards during the meeting. Your lanyards will be given to every attendee to use throughout the conference. Sponsorship at this level includes company logo on lanyards, an acknowledgement on the meeting website, and in online and hard copy meeting materials.
