Sponsorship

We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities available that are outlined further below and in our Sponsorship Letter.

Please note that special sponsor opportunities (lunch, reception, breaks) and exhibitor space is limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Note: A portion of all sponsorship proceeds will be used for Indigenous and student inclusion activities and themes throughout the event. This recognizes the significant barriers Indigenous Peoples have in attending such workshops, as well as the value gained in having all voices at the table for water resource discussions. Funds will support the participation and attendance of Indigenous Peoples and students, including funding to support  Indigenous speakers and other aspects of inclusion throughout the workshop.
