Vendor donation levels will continue with the three tiered donation structure. The schedule will remain as formatted in 2016. Invited speakers will talk in the morning, and vendor talks will be in the afternoon, starting at 2 pm. Below are the price tiers.
- “The Full Monty” - This tier includes a tabletop for displays and a speaker. This tier is limited to 8 (eight) vendors and are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Registration confirms your intent and payment must be received in full within two weeks if not paid by credit card at the time of registration. If payment is not received, your slot will be forfeited and given to the next person in queue. The talks must be scientific, rather than just an ad for your company. Talking about new things in development is always welcome too. All presentations must be approved by the SWES board. Slides and all relevant information are due to the SWES by September 15th for approval.
- “The Half Nelson” - This tier includes a tabletop only. This tier is open to all and a table will be provided.
- “The Lone Gunman” – This tier gives a vendor admission to the conference. This is more akin to a participant, with benefits. You are able to approach participants and talk to them about your company and provide literature, if desired.
Please let us know if your company is interested in being a vendor and if you intend to sponsor a speaker by clicking here and sending a message. If you are going to invite someone who is not an employee of your company, then you will be responsible for their registration. Each company can bring 2 people as part of their registration fee, including a speaker (if applicable). Additional participants will need to register and pay the nominal registration fee.
