Call for Sponsors 


28th Annual Conference | April 19th-22nd, 2021 @ Portland State University 

You are invited to take part in the 2021 GIS in Action conference as a sponsor in support of a great community of GIS professionals. GIS in Action is the premier annual gathering of over 250 professionals and students from Oregon and Southwest Washington. It’s a chance to share ideas, get educated on new technologies and opportunities, and refresh relationships with colleagues. This year, due to the ongoing pandemic, the conference will be held virtually. While this presents challenges, it also provides an opportunity for more people from all over the region to attend. For more information about the conference, please visit the conference planning site currently under construction. 

As a sponsor, you have an opportunity to support this community and get exposure to the community for your products or services. This year we will include: 

1. Registration, at two levels:

$500, with 2 passes to the conference for your organization. (see below)

An opportunity to host a meeting room, which can be customized by your organization as an exhibit space, or used in a manner of your choosing.
