Sponsorship and Exhibition Opportunities
NAFEMS World Congress & International SPDM Conference
An Outstanding Opportunity
We are delighted to offer your company the chance to be part of the 16th NAFEMS World Congress including the 3rd International SPDM Conference. There are several outstanding opportunities available for your company to sponsor or exhibit, giving you maximum exposure to a highly targeted audience of delegates, who are all directly involved in simulation, analysis and design.
NAFEMS World Congress - NWC17
As the only truly independent, international event dedicated to engineering analysis and simulation, the biennial NAFEMS World Congress has been a fixture on the calendar of everyone involved in FEA, CFD, MBS and CAE for the last three decades. The last Congress in 2015 welcomed over 580 attendees, all of whom were keenly focused on analysis and simulation. The Congress is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious and highly focused simulation and analysis forums available to the community, and is held in highest regard by users, software vendors and academics alike.
The International SPDM Conference
Over the past ten years, NAFEMS has held a series of dedicated conferences on the topic of simulation data and process management in both Europe and North America. The popularity of these has been such that the 1st International SPDM Conference was launched in 2013, and the 3rd run of this highly successful event will will run alongside the NAFEMS World Congress in 2017. Bringing together industrial users, technology experts, academics and software vendors alike, this ground-breaking event will allow all those with an interest to take part in the first truly independent, international forum dedicated to SPDM.
Two Conferences – One Package
Delegates registered for both conferences will have access to both. The tracks for the SPDM conference will be scheduled in such a way that delegates can also take part in the NWC keynote sessions without missing out, and similarly, NWC delegates can take part in the SPDM agenda as and when they please. The co-location of both shows will provide an extensive exhibition area, including a specific area within this dedicated to SPDM. Sponsorship and exhibition packages cover both events, with a further specific sponsorship package for those companies who wish to sponsor only the SPDM conference.
A Unique Opportunity
The NAFEMS World Congress presents a unique opportunity, as delegates are primarily high-level decision makers working in industry across the globe. The exhibition area will be a central point at the Congress,ensuring that there is a consistent level of “traffic” at all times –refreshments, announcements, events, and competitions will focus on this area, giving you the chance to meet as many of our delegates as possible.
Align yourself with NAFEMS
As the only international association dedicated to the engineering analysis, modelling, simulation, and systems engineering community, NAFEMS is widely held to be the leading independent source of information and training for engineering analysts and designers of all levels. Sponsors and exhibitors will have the chance to promote their attendance prior to the event,through the various packages outlined here. Being seen to be participating in the NAFEMS World Congress gives the analysis world a positive impression of your company’s commitment to best practice, standards and continued professional development.
