Exhibit and Sponsorship Opportunities
THE State GIS/Mapping Conference
This is the 33rd Annual Kansas Association of Mappers Conference. This statewide conference is designed to attract and welcome any GIS and Mapping professionals and organizations from the government, nonprofit, private and academic sectors.
Who are the Attendees?
The association will host a conference for over 120 City, County, groups and organizations of the GIS and Mapping profession throughout the Sunflower State. They are appraisers, assessors, GIS managers, mappers, and mapping analysts. Typically wearing several different “hats” in their county, city, or organization they perform duties that cross over typical job descriptions. Their expertise and knowledge supports many different aspects of their organization and government. Each provide valuable input into decision making processes.

Join us Wednesday evening, October 17th in the Exhibit Hall from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm for a chance to network with the KAM attendees. To encourage attendee interaction with exhibitors we will be doing something new and exciting this year. We will have teams play Minute it to Win it type games. Each team must have at least one exhibitor. It is a great opportunity to network with attendees from across the State, and to showcase your company or business. In addition to this dedicated time, there will be time between and during proceedings as opportunities for outreach. Opportunities to provide sponsorships are available. Please let us know if you have any special requests. We would be happy to help you organize your ideas.
