KAM Conference Exhibitor Opportunities

State GIS/Mapping Conference

The 35th Annual Kansas Association of Mappers Conference will be a year to remember. It will be the first virtual conference held by KAM. While not what were expecting, it will give us the opportunity to attract and welcome even more GIS and Mapping professionals and organizations from the government, nonprofit, private and academic sectors from all over the State of Kansas, and even beyond the state line.

While we will miss shaking hands, a virtual conference will still allow us to be in the same "room." We will be able to hear and interact with other industry professionals, network with old friends, and engage with new professionals that may not have been able to attend in the past.

As an exhibitor, this type of conference opportunity will allow you to save money on travel and lodging, and more importantly, time. We believe this forum will also allow us to increase our attendance. We have the potential to reach attendees that were unable to attend in the past due to distance, cost, etc.

Who are the Attendees?

The association will host a conference for State, City, County, private, and other groups and organizations of the GIS and Mapping profession throughout the Sunflower State. They are GIS: managers, specialists, analysts, technicians. They also include: appraisers, emergency management, researchers, health specialists, environmentalists, and more. Typically wearing several different “hats” in their state, county, city, or organization they perform duties that cross over typical job descriptions. Their expertise and knowledge support many different aspects of their organization and government. Each provide valuable input into decision making processes.

When will the Conference be held?

The 35th Annual Conference will be held on October 27-30th, 2020. A detailed schedule will be provided.

What Opportunities are Available for My Company?

The conference has many different options available to meet your budget (see below). If you have additional ideas or would like to sponsor the conference in a different way, give us a call and we can customize something to fit your budget.

How will this provide my company with high visibility among attendees?

In addition to program advertising and lightning talks, KAM will sponsor giveaways that attendees will earn chances for by attending exhibitor talks or visiting with exhibitors. Each exhibitor will be given a unique code that attendees will need to win prizes. Each exhibitor can supply their own giveaways as well to encourage more interaction.
