Sponsorship & Exhibition Opportunities

On behalf of the organising committee, we are delighted to invite your organisation to support the 2018 NZMSS conference. A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available at the Conference. We would also like to discuss any new proposals you may wish to put forward. The Committee is happy to negotiate a package that will be of maximum benefit to your company and the Conference.

The Organising Committee anticipate 200+ delegates to attend the 2018 conference from among the Marine Science industry.

Support of the conference and exhibition will provide your organisation with a number of key benefits.
> Exposure to a qualified, relevant and influential audience before, during and after the event.
> Networking opportunities during the conference to promote your organisation’s products and services directly to key decision makers.
Supporters of the conference will consolidate existing industry relationships and develop new ones.

A variety of sponsorship packages are being offered, please contact Lea Boodee at On-Cue Conferences to discuss supporting the conference.
We are happy to consider ideas and amendments to the packages below that maintain the spirit of supporting the conference at the designated levels.

New Zealand Marine Sciences Society Sponsorship Policy

The New Zealand Marine Sciences Society (NZMSS) acknowledges that sponsorship provides funds and resources to help the society achieve its goals and objectives and thus enhance the value it provides to its members. Sponsorship may be provided by research institutes, government agencies and departments, trusts, foundations or commercial enterprises

Purpose of this policy
The objectives of this policy are to:
  • Reflect the fundamental principles that shape the NZMSS’s relationship with sponsors to ensure they generate mutual benefits.
  • Ensure that the NZMSS has a coordinated approach to sponsorship
  • Further, develop positive working relationships with sponsors for the benefit of both parties
  • Ensure that the integrity of the NZMSS brand is actively managed and controlled by employing a practical and fair approval process

  1. All sponsorship arrangements must be specified in an agreement between the NZMSS and the sponsor. The agreement must outline all specific provisions as well as terms and conditions.
  2. The NZMSS should be open to discussing specific sponsor requirements and to work with sponsors on ways they can maximise the benefits of their investment in accordance with these guidelines.
  3. By entering into an agreement with a sponsor, the NZMSS does not imply endorsement of a company’s product or service and may not be represented by the sponsor or NZMSS as such.
  4. The NZMSS usually calls for sponsorship of its annual conference through a sponsorship proposal. Responses to this proposal are evaluated by the conference organising committee. The organising committee must follow these guidelines in their evaluation of sponsorship offers. The NZMSS Council retains responsibility for final approval of any sponsorship.
  5. Offers of sponsorship unrelated to the conference should be addressed to the NZMSS Council.
  6. The NZMSS prefers to have multiple sponsors for each event/activity.
  7. Conference programming is carried out by the Society and is always independent of the sponsor(s).
  8. Oral or poster conference presentations by people associated with the sponsors must not be used for promotional purposes. Abstracts from sponsors and other parties associated with sponsors will be subject to the same review and selection process as for any other conference presentation, and offers of sponsorship may not be contingent on selection of presentation abstracts.
  9. The NZMSS must clearly identify all sponsors at events/activities and in related communication material
  10. The sponsor must seek approval from the NZMSS for the use of the NZMSS name and/or logo.
  11. Sponsors must not promote services or products that are in contradiction to the objectives of the society (viewable on the NZMSS website).
