2019 Sponsorships

The UNITE 2019 Conference will be held on 30 September - 2 October at the Hilton Minneapolis; 1001 Marquette Ave; Minneapolis, MN   55403

Sponsors can reserve space in the Exhibit Hall to provide a convenient marketing forum to conference attendees.  To increase your brand recognition, you can also sponsor conference activities and items that will be distributed to all attending during on-site registration.

Exhibit Hall space, where receptions and dinner will be held, can be reserved by submitting a Sponsor Contract to UNITE.  In addition, sponsor staff can easily meet with attendees during the conference breakfast and lunch which is also served in the Exhibit Hall. The contract document can be downloaded here:  2019 Exhibit Contract.  An exhibitor’s manual and Sponsor ID code will be emailed upon receipt of the contract.  Once you receive your Sponsor ID, you can go to the UNITE Event Management System (EMS) to complete your registration and purchase:  UNITE 2019 Registration

All space reservations include a number of full conference registrations with the same benefits as those available to attendees including session attendance, receptions, and meals.  Additional sponsor registrations are available for a reduced registration fee.  Registration is required for all sponsor personnel unless special arrangements have been made in advance.

Sponsors and any members of the UNITE community are welcome to offer presentations for Agenda consideration using the following link to the Abstract Entry site.
