Dear Vendor,

We are seeking vendor support for and participation in the 2017 UA System Scholars Institute, which will meet May 15 and 16, 2017 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This year’s theme is Lessons Learned and Future Directions: Technology in Teaching, Research, and Service.  More than 200 faculty and staff from UA, UAB, and UAH will attend to collaborate about technology in teaching and research through presentations, panels, and other learning opportunities.

The Exhibit Hall, open on May 15 and 16, 2017, will allow vendors to demonstrate current and emerging technologies and to distribute promotional materials. The event schedule will encourage visitors to frequent the Exhibit Hall to explore the latest and greatest technologies.

We are calling for sponsors to participate by hosting a booth, by providing merchandise giveaways, or by donating funds to support the Institute. Higher levels of sponsorship offer greater opportunities to connect with Institute attendees, including possible presentations, preferably co-presenting with a UA System colleague. Presentations cannot be a sales pitch and must contain relevant content that meets proposal requirements. Our Levels of Sponsorship are provided below as guidelines.

Sponsorship Levels of Commitment, each recognized in print program and web:

  • DIAMOND sponsor for $1,000.00 or greater, or in-kind donation. Diamond sponsors may (1) give organizers print materials for distribution during the event, (2) host a booth in the Exhibit Hall, and (3) submit a proposal for consideration.
  • PLATINUM sponsor for $500.00-$999.99, or in-kind donation; Platinum sponsors may (1) give organizers print materials for distribution during the event and (2) host a booth in the Exhibit Hall.
