Conference sponsorships for organizations include:
  • Keynote Lunch - $2000 sponsors a hearty lunch on Saturday with our distinguished Keynote Speaker. Your organization can make our general session (and some say, a highlight of our Conference) even better. Sponsored by Microsoft!

  • Industry Expo Event - $1500 provides hot and cold appetizers during our Expo Event where vendors staff tabletop displays highlighting their products and services. Often considered the most festive event of the Conference, this event features cash bar, delicious snacks, and prizes galore! We'll even have a "Knowledge Hunt" activity for participants to get to know our vendor partners and earn some goodies in the process.

  • Technical/Model Shop Tours (Full) - $1000 sponsors a full-day tour with two stops at Seattle-area model shops or industry-related attractions, including lunch  Tour E - Sponsored by VELUX!

  • Technical/Model Shop Tours (Shared) - $500 sponsors half of a day-long tour to area model shops or industry-related attractions, including lunch

  • Meet & Greet Event (Option 1) - $1000 underwrites the popular Pizza Meet & Greet event  Sponsored by Herman Miller!

  • Women in Model Making (WIMM) Happy Hour - $250 sponsors an informal gathering of women who make models. Formerly a breakfast event, participants in the past few years (yes, this will be our 4th WIMM gathering!) have asked for a later timetable, and adult beverages - so, we've shifted gears to an afternoon happy hour featuring complimentary appetizers and a free drink for each participant. We'll welcome women of all levels of experience in our field, including students. Additionally, women who are model shop owners or managers can arrange to be available for one-on-one mentorship during the conference.

    • Workshop Snack Break - $500 provides an assortment of sweet or salty grab&go snacks.  Sponsored by Acropolis Studios Model Works!
    • Morning Coffee Break - $800 sponsors hot tea, coffee, juices, and pastries during workshop sessions (2 available)
