SDES 60TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE VENDOR, PARTNER AND SPONSOR OPPORTUNITIES

With the virtual conference, SDES is offering new opportunities for sponsors, partners and vendors and we invite you to take a look at the options below. Our virtual Fall Conference saw not only record attendance, but attendance by industry professionals who have never attended our conference before. We are looking forward to another conference with record breaking attendance and the opportunity for you to share your products, brand and information with even more people. Included below are a variety of ways for you to exhibit virtually at our conference, sponsor a portion of the conference, and advertise or partner with SDES. If you have an additional sponsorship idea, other than what we have included here, please don’t hesitate to contact Nancy at the SDES office at 605.951.1004.
