National Working Waterfronts & Waterways Symposium

Exhibiting Sponsors

Sponsor Display Room: Bayshore 2-3, Hilton Tampa Downtown


Platinum level sponsors receive 2 complimentary 6 ft individually skirted table top display spaces. Gold and Silver level sponsors receive 1 complimentary 6 ft individually skirted table top display space. Refreshment breaks will be served in the sponsor display room each day so that scientists, policy makers, planners, practitioners and managers can interact and utilize these engagement opportunities to exchange information. No electricity will be provided.


Due to space constrictions, only Platinum, Gold and Silver level sponsors will have display space. The 2015 NWWW Symposium will not be selling exhibitor options. If you would like to showcase your company to our audience of key decision makers, please be sure to sign-up as a Platinum, Gold or Silver level sponsor. To maximize interaction and engagement opportunities, sponsor representatives are encouraged to be stationed at their displays during breaks. It is not necessary to be stationed at a table for the duration of the symposium, rather all attendees are encouraged to participate in the full symposium and sessions.
