Advertising Opportunities at the Summer Symposium
Sponsor the continental breakfast $5000
What you’re sponsoring: Why are Symposium attendees so happy? Because they’ve had a great breakfast! Help us provide a complimentary breakfast for our attendees! However, food costs have increased dramatically this year. We need your help!

Bonus: Symposium attendees will subconsciously associate your product or group with food!
Sponsor the closing banquet $3000
What you’re sponsoring: We always end the symposium with a banquet, bringing in musicians, performers, comedians, and sometimes scholars (if they’re really interesting) to entertain our attendees. Your sponsorship will go directly towards the cost of the venue.

Sponsor a plenary session $1000
What you’re sponsoring: Normally, Sunstone has up to seven tracks going at each session, but we stop them all so that everyone can go to our plenary sessions—that’s how good they are! But it takes money to cover AV costs, set-up, and speaker fees.

Sponsor the “swag bags” $1000

Sponsor a session $500
What you’re sponsoring: Are you especially enthused about a particular session? Do you want its message or speaker to be associated with your product or group? Do you have a special session or speaker you’d like to bring in? Sponsor the session!
