Annual Meeting Sponsorship

 

Join us in Washington, DC, February 3-5, 2018, for ACCU's 2018 Annual Meeting!

The ACCU Annual Meeting connects sponsors directly with presidents and senior executives in Catholic higher education institutions. This unique opportunity brings your organization’s best representatives face-to-face with presidents and top-level decision makers from more than 200 U.S. and international Catholic college campuses and a dozen affiliate organizations — a sure way to establish new relationships, strengthen existing connections, and expand business opportunities. The partnerships that form at the ACCU Annual Meeting benefit our sponsors and ACCU member institutions alike.

 

The Top 5 Reasons to Sponsor the ACCU Annual Meeting:

  1. The Annual Meeting attracts senior executive leadership from the more than 200 ACCU member institutions of all sizes and populations. Representing 90% of all Catholic colleges and universities in the United States, ACCU members serve approximately 1 million students.
  2. In 2017, the Annual Meeting and its pre-conference events drew a record of more than 500 attendees — of whom 165 were Catholic college and university presidents.
  3. The Annual Meeting takes place in a small, boutique hotel setting, allowing for individualized conversations with sponsors. That means a high level of visibility and interaction for you with existing and potential clients in Catholic higher education.
  4. Attendance has doubled over the last seven years — and continues to grow. ACCU also limits the number of sponsors, keeping the attendee-to-sponsor ratio high.
  5. Sponsorship opportunities offer unique ways to promote your organization’s commitment to the mission and values of Catholic higher education.

 

Sponsorship Benefits

Sponsors have various opportunities to attach their company name to an event or session during the Annual Meeting. In most cases, the sponsor’s name will appear either on signage at the event or session, or in the final program.
