2017 Symposium Sponsorship Packages

 Sponsorship Benefits and Packages

The Symposium provides a platform for you to showcase your company, your products, and/or services offer.  Based on the positive response from last year’s PMI-SV Symposium, we are offering the same Sponsorship packages, at the same price with added benefits in 2016.  Our primary goal is to provide our Sponsors with equity, value, and flexibility.

Align your organization with PMI’s 23rd largest chapter and the largest chapter in California!  PMI-SV’s Symposium is a practitioner’s educational event, with networking opportunities for project management professionals and key business decision-makers.  Seize this opportunity to show project management professionals how you can help them to deliver project success – more critical in this economic climate than ever before.  Select from pre-bundled packages, plus maximum your exposure with our à la carte list of value-added opportunities.  Our flexible Sponsorship menu will enable you to target your money and time on establishing the presence you desire.

The Symposium is being held from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 2rd, thru Tuesday, October 3rd. The proceedings will occur at the Santa Clara Convention Center.  Approximately 200 attendees are expected from PMI-SV and other PMI chapters, both locally and across the nation.  Attendees represent key influencers and primary decision makers in their organizations.

Why Sponsor the PMI-Silicon Valley’s Symposium?
