Sponsorship Opportunities

If you’re looking for a captive audience that has a built-in interest in your product and large collective buying power, become a NETC 2016 sponsor. At the annual conference, you will have direct access to the approximate 250 information technology professionals from over 40 states who are key decision makers in implementing hardware and software solutions that impact faculty, staff, and the general public across the nation. These decision makers have broad influence across the Extension network and support such Extension-related disciplines as agriculture, human sciences, forestry, and agricultural experiment stations.

The conference provides a relaxed and casual atmosphere in which to mingle with potential clients who are constantly looking for new ideas and innovative solutions for education, information delivery, infrastructure, application development, telecommunications, and resource management. Come pass a good time at NETC 2016 on June 6th – June 9th, 2016, at the Embassy Suites Orlando - Lake Buena Vista South! Thank you in advance for your support of the National Extension Technology Conference 2016! This conference would not be possible without the sponsorship of organizations such as yours.
