Why Sponsor Us

To remain a sustainable organization year after year we depend on our network of generous sponsors and donors. We would not be able to provide these great learning experiences to nursing students without you! Running a conference is not an inexpensive event. We have many costs to cover ranging from the venue, to catering, and the cost of travel for all of our speakers. The 2014 conference sold out, with 114 attendees and an extensive waitlist. We project around 200 nursing students, plus professional nurses for the 2015 conference. See below for the various methods of sponsorship available.

We provide the opportunity to have personal exposure to our students and attendees during the conference by purchasing booth space. There are many opportunities throughout the day for attendees and students to walk around and mingle. This can present an opening for organizations to engage students and talk about the services and benefits your organization may offer.

Raffle Donations

As discussed earlier, we rely on generous donations every year for our raffle gifts, which is another essential part to our yearly funding. This raffle is available throughout the day and in between speakers, where our nursing students and attendees purchase tickets on the gifts you kindly donated to us. All of the funding from the raffle goes towards keeping the conference going for years to come.

Delegate Bag Donations

Each person who attends the conference receives a delegate bag which is comprised of their certificate of attendance, snacks and small gifts such as custom pens, paper and an assortment of donated items. This has always been a key feature of the conference as our delegates take this bag home with them to remember the conference and all the generous sponsors for years to come.
