2015 Southwest Conference Sponsorships

Planning is underway for the 2015 NIRI Southwest Conference and we are pleased to provide sponsorship opportunities for what promises to be another successful event. Previous conferences hosted by Houston’s NIRI chapter have received significant recognition including NIRI National’s “Best Large Chapter Special Event” award, a Top 3 Grand Excalibur Nominee, Gold winner for Special Events Tradeshow, and a Silver winner for Educational Campaign. We plan to continue this success with another award winning conference in 2015.

Historically, the NIRI Southwest Conference has proven to be an excellent opportunity to showcase vendor services.  To ensure that legacy continues, we have developed several sponsorship and vendor showcase options to allow you to maximize the return on your promotion budget while supporting the conference. The complete list of sponsorship opportunities available below.  By selecting from the following list, you’ll be able to customize your desired level of investment to fit within your budget, while maximizing your brand’s exposure at this one of a kind event. These opportunities are limited and booking quickly, so act fast!
