The Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) offers sponsorship opportunities to both corporate and academic organizations. Corporate organizations enjoy ample opportunity to increase relationship building, branding marketing and sales efforts. Academic sponsors will help to perpetuate the long WSC history of providing a high quality outlet for simulation research. WSC sponsorship is an ideal way to:
- Generate a prominent presence at WSC 2016
- Increase visibility for your organization and products on a variety of conference venues, including the WSC website, conferences signage, the WSC Final Program, pre-conference emails, and a newly added mobile event application
- Deliver a personal message of commitment to the simulation community
WSC 2016 offers Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze Sponsorship Levels. Additional ideas for other events or sponsorship activities are welcome. Contact for sponsorship: Joe Hugan
PLEASE NOTE: INFORMS would like to make you aware of some important changes to the sponsorship registration process. We are excited to announce that we will be utilizing an online registration system through Association Anywhere. This is the same system that attendees use when registering for the conference. Online sponsorship registration will eliminate a lot of the manual tracking and processing that was done in the past and will allow sponsors to:
- Register, pay with a credit card or request invoice online
- Agree to terms and conditions
- Receive an instant time stamped confirmation e-mail
