Annual Sponsorship

You won’t find a better opportunity to drive awareness, visibility, and demand directly with the decision-makers!

Internet2’s membership includes over 480 organizations, including the nation’s top universities, government, and scientific research organizations. Internet2 programs and events draw C-level information technology decision-makers and other high-level influencers from these organizations, creating unique opportunities to cultivate deep relationships. 

Becoming an annual sponsor of Internet2 will provide unmatched visibility and alignment with your organization’s target constituencies. No other promotional vehicle can single you out so effectively before an audience of this size and caliber. As an annual sponsor, you automatically earn a benefits package worth thousands of dollars—and special privileges not available by any other means.

Along with official acknowledgments, special signage, and promotional strategies, annual sponsorship puts your company’s name foremost in the minds of your target market, bringing with it industry leadership positioning, unmatched brand awareness, equity, and promotional value—and the goodwill of your target audience, key business partners, and prospects.

Annual sponsorship packages have been crafted to offer integrated, high-touch experiential branding with Internet2 members. While individual event sponsorships are available to fit any budget, annual sponsorships are reserved for the Internet2 industry members who are most engaged and committed to the research and education community. Additionally, if your company has different resources, goals, or ideas for the expression of your brand, a customized sponsorship package can be developed to meet your needs. Annual sponsorships are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so act now to align with this group of information technology and advanced networking decision-makers from the research and education community.

Topical Events

Internet2 hosts a variety of topical events and training throughout the year, such as the following:

  • InCommon BaseCAMP brings together all those interested in the basics of identity and access management, the basics of federated identity management, and provides an overview of the InCommon Trusted Access Platform suite of software and services. The 2022 BaseCAMP will be presented online, Monday through Friday, June 6-10, 2022. 
  • Supporting Change Leaders Using the Tech Inclusion Journey helps institutions and organizations address typical pitfalls of traditional approaches to diversity and inclusion. The TIJ employs a strategic, but not prescriptive approach – guiding change leaders through a three-step “journey” that is owned by technical leaders in industry and academia, implemented at the team level. This event will be hosted by our colleagues from the National Center for Women In Technology. (Date TBD)
  • The Internet2 Internet History Webinar features short presentations from some of the most notable Internet pioneers, followed by a panel discussion, Q&A session, and virtual social event.

Webinars

Webinars can be effective and high-impact tools to raise visibility for industry members and educate the community about key member challenges and outcomes. While all Internet2 industry members can host their own webinars to be publicized via Internet2 channels, this sponsorship includes a webinar that is hosted and co-branded by Internet2 on our own web and registration pages. These sponsored webinars are subject to approval regarding alignment with core communications principles and guidelines as well as other factors like topic, relevance, and timing.
