To insure the success of the conference, the organizers must initially rely on seed money from sponsors. We trust that our corporate partners in the field of Raman Spectroscopy will assist in underwriting the start-up costs of the conference. Your company’s support is vital.
We invite your company to support the conference as a Sponsor. Your support will provide the funds necessary to begin conference promotion, implement our planning and offer some travel support to invited speakers and students. Without your support, we will not have the financial resources to reach our goals for this conference.
Please feel free to call or email either of us to discuss your interest in the conference. We will work with you to design a custom strategy for your company.
We look forward to notification of your generous participation to assure the funds needed to push ahead with our planning. Different level of Sponsorship is available - please contact Igor Lednev for details. All levels will include, at a minimum:

- exhibit space (table)

- admission to conference (# people depends on level)

- logo on the website and all materials .
