Become a Sponsor and help celebrate ornithology and the spring migration of birds in Tucson, AZ.  You can make a huge difference!

We invite you to join AOS in our mission to advance the scientific study and conservation of birds and to further the professional development of our members by becoming a Sponsor of the 136th Meeting of American Ornithology, Celebrating Connections: Birds Across Borders. This event will be held in Tuscon, Arizona from 9-14 April, 2018 at the Hilton El Conquistador.

Sponsorship levels vary in contributions, exposure, and exclusivity. Packages are both affordable and robust, ranging from $500 to $20,000.  We are excited to introduce the Next Generation Sponsor level ($1,000 and higher) to support a wide diversity of students attending our conference.

The annual conference of the AOS is the premier gathering place worldwide for ornithologists, students and early professionals, and managers advancing bird conservation and applied research. We’re expecting over 700 attendees from academia, nonprofits, government, and industry to convene in Tucson to network and experience spring migration in Southeastern Arizona. In addition to the latest ornithological science and new methodologies being presented in sessions (link to program at a glance), new technologies and tools presented at workshops, we provide valuable opportunities for student participation, mentorship, and professional development.

Our attendees include professionals and decision makers from all facets of avian science and management.  By sponsoring, your organization will be in front of educators, agency researchers, nonprofit directors and scientists, early professional innovators, students, and consultants.

From pre-event marketing exposure to extensive on-site visibility, sponsoring the American Ornithology 2018 conference is a great way to reach the diverse professionals in ornithology.
