Sponsors & Trade Show

The Washington-British Columbia Chapter of the American Fisheries Society is pleased to announce our upcoming 2017 Annual General Meeting to be held at Hotel RL in Spokane, WA on April 10-13. This conference will be a gathering of scientists, researchers, academics, practitioners, and policymakers focused on fisheries research and collaborations in the Pacific Northwest.

We invite you to participate in this event through financial contributions and conference exhibiting opportunities. As a Sponsor, your company logo will be featured in our program, on meeting signage and on our website. As a Trade Show participant, you will have the opportunity to engage with 150+ conference delegates.

The Chapter is sustained by the sponsorships received from agencies, industries and other groups. Your sponsorship money directly supports student travel, discounted student registration, student and professional awards, and allows the Chapter to host scientific meetings. Our organization is certified non-profit; thus, all of your contributions are tax-deductible.

The conference is publicized on academic, professional and institutional list serves, social and professional networking sites, and of course through this website.

See below for details of the sponsorship levels and trade show fees. Multiple opportunities are available to fit your exposure needs.

We are also accepting contributions to our silent auction. Items such as t-shirts, books, fieldwork supplies, art, and jewelry will be on display during the meeting. All of the proceeds of the silent auction go directly to student conference travel.

We look forward to hearing from you soon about your involvement in our upcoming conference. Trade show is space limited, so reserve your space now!

Please complete and return the appropriate form by March 1, 2017.
