Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship of the Water Institute Symposium gives your organization valuable exposure to faculty, staff and students from Florida's institutions of higher learning as well as scientists, engineers, academics, non-governmental organizations, policy makers, water managers, industry representatives, lawyers and the public invested in water resource sustainability initiatives. Your participation in the Water Institute events can have a positive effect on the future of your organization, as the availability of your products and services will be publicized to scientists who strive to advance their research capabilities. Many of the symposium participants will be key stakeholders in the expanding effort to create sustainable water resources programs, institutions and communities in Florida.
