Sponsorship and Exhibit Opportunities Abound at "Making a Great Lake Superior" Conference

September 07, 2007

Companies, agencies, and organizations are invited to exhibit at or help sponsor the "Making a Great Lake Superior 2007" conference, held in Duluth, Minn., from October 29 to 31, 2007. This international conference will focus on using research, education, and resource management approaches to address pressing issues facing the Lake Superior ecosystem, including:

  • climate change,
  • aquatic invasive species,
  • and water levels.

Over 300 residents, educators, resource managers, and researchers from around Lake Superior are expected to attend this meeting at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center. The two-and-a-half-day event will include a mixture of:

  • plenary presentations,
  • contributed sessions,
  • facilitated working sessions,
  • exhibits,
  • posters,
  • evening socials,
  • pre-conference community gatherings, and
  • post-conference field trips.

Environmental stewardship is built into the conference organization, which will help ensure the event is carbon-neutral, provides locally grown food to the extent possible, and minimizes waste production.

Exhibitor registration costs $350 and includes one full conference registration and exhibit space in a room adjacent to the conference registration area. The exhibit room will be the location of all refreshment breaks, the poster session, and reception. For details, visit: www.seagrant.umn.edu/superior2007/registration/ or call Minnesota Sea Grant at (218) 726-8106.

Sponsorship is offered at a variety of funding levels and venues, starting at $500. Sponsorship funds can also be used for scholarships and travel awards that will help students, teachers, and volunteer organization members attend the conference.
