Sponsorship Opportunities

On March 25-29, 2019 the National Water Quality Monitoring Council (NWQMC) will host
the 11th National Monitoring Conference at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel in Denver, Colorado. This forum is for ALL water stakeholders, including federal, state, tribal and local water professionals, non-profits, academia, volunteer citizen scientists, and industry.

We invite you to partner with NWQMC through one of our conference sponsorship opportunities. Sponsorship helps you build awareness of your brand and develop relationships with our 600-800 attendees. And the registration benefits included with some of our packages help you connect with the right people in the water quality community.

The Monitoring Conference features six or seven concurrent technical sessions, workshops, and training with several hundred individual oral or poster presentations over three days. The conference agenda features 30-minute breaks in the morning and afternoon and 90-minute lunches. All meals are held in the exhibition hall to maximize sponsor/exhibitor-attendee interactions during breaks.

Sessions will deal with monitoring design, advances in monitoring technology and instrumentation, methods for monitoring emerging water-quality risks such as harmful algal blooms or new contaminants, implementation of real-time water quality monitoring networks, assessing the effectiveness of water management actions, evaluating water-quality trends, and building partnerships.

We are confident that, no matter what your needs are, there is a sponsorship package that will make a difference for both you and our attendees.
