We are pleased to provide you with advertising information and sponsorship opportunities which can provide your company with greater exposure and recognition within the SICB membership as well as the co-sponsoring societies.


Why Should You Exhibit?

Because it's just good economics. A recent study indicated that the cost per contact made at exhibit shows is about 63% less than the cost of a sales call.

Because the SICB Annual Meeting offers an environment conducive to detailed discussion of your products and services. And, in 2001, the SICB Annual Meeting will be the definitive conference on integrative and comparative biology and related fields.

Because it's a tie to future business. The message of a well-designed exhibit helps you develop new leads while increasing the educational value of the meeting for attendees. Get your message across at the SICB Annual Meeting.
