NISO Plus 2021 Sponsorship Opportunities

Expanded Sponsorship Opportunities

Following on from the success of the inaugural NISO Plus conference in February 2020, we are delighted to announce that NISO Plus 2021 is scheduled for February 2021.

The information community was a strong supporter of NISO Plus 2020 — an amazing 28 organizations sponsored the conference. Their representatives gave it a strong thumbs up, with a Net Promoter Score of 50! And they're putting their money where their mouth is - 10 of last year's sponsors have already committed to support NISO Plus 2021, at levels at or above their 2020 sponsorships. A big thank you to them all, and we hope that you'll considering joining them!

Due to uncertainty about the COVID-19 situation, NISO Plus 2021 will be an online-first meeting, with the possibility of an in-person element during 2021. This gives us a unique opportunity to open the conference up to a much broader and diverse, fully international audience. We know how committed the information community is to being inclusive and, with your support, we will be able to make NISO Plus openly available to everyone who wants to participate — from Baltimore to Berlin to Brisbane and beyond!

Moving to online first has also enabled us to expand the range of sponsorship opportunities available, allowing you to pick and mix to create the package that works best for your organization. From as little as $500 for a Bit-level sponsorship, there’s something for everyone. All options are first come, first served, and early bird sponsors also get first choice of in-person sponsorship options!
