The Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) offers sponsorship opportunities to both corporate and academic organizations. Corporate organizations enjoy ample opportunity to increase relationship building, branding marketing and sales efforts. Academic sponsors will help to perpetuate the long WSC history of providing a high quality outlet for simulation research. WSC sponsorship is an ideal way to:

– Generate a prominent presence at WSC 2014 in Savannah;
– Increase visibility for your organization and products on a variety of conference venues, including the WSC website,
   conferences signage, the WSC Final Program, pre-conference emails, and a newly added mobile event application;
– Deliver a personal message of commitment to the simulation community.

WSC 2014 offers both Supporting and Elite sponsorship levels. Additional ideas for other events or sponsorship activities are welcome. Contact for sponsorship: John Tufarolo, john@tufarolo.com.
