Sponsorship Opportunities

Thank you for your consideration of sponsorship for the 146th Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society – August 21-25, 2016 in Kansas City, Missouri. The meeting is expected to have 1,500+ attendees from around the world including fisheries and aquaculture scientists, educators, agency directors and administrators, consultants, representatives from Native American Tribes, and fishing and scientific industry professionals. Depending on your level of sponsorship, you will have the ability to market your products and services to new and existing clients including advertisement in Fisheries magazine, which goes out to 10,000 readers each month, complimentary meeting registration for two and a trade show booth, and even the ability to be recognized as the sole sponsor of one of our social events or breaks during the meeting. Your sponsorship can be monetary support, a donation of goods or services for social events or our silent auction, or a combination of both. If you have further questions feel free to contact: Shawn Johnston, 301-897-8616 x230, sjohnston@fisheries.org.
