Exhibition October 24-26, 2017
Exhibition and Sponsorship Opportunities
The goal of USCID’s 2017 Conference in Sacramento is to assist water districts by providing tools and case studies to address the wide spectrum of issues every day as they try to effectively and efficiently provide water to their customers. These issues range from “big picture” items such as how to properly manage their water supply, determining where water is located in the district on a minute-to-minute basis, addressing environmental issues and regulations, and maintaining the district’s infrastructure, while also identifying funding sources that districts can use to assist with their operations.
The Conference will provide a forum for water district staff, irrigation and drainage specialists, consultants, equipment suppliers and academics to share innovative solutions and learn from each other’s experiences. Water resources professionals from around the world are encouraged to attend.
Who Should Exhibit?
Companies providing goods and services related to irrigation, drainage and water resources; water management; water operations and delivery; water conservation; drought management; and environmental issues are invited to exhibit.
The exhibition will open with a reception on Tuesday evening, October 24, and will continue through the Thursday afternoon coffee break. Opportunities to meet with exhibitors will be offered during the opening reception; and continental breakfasts, morning and afternoon breaks and lunches on Wednesday and Thursday. During a Meet the Exhibitors Session on Tuesday afternoon, exhibitor staff will be introduced to the Conference participants and will be given an opportunity to summarize their products and services. The welcome reception with the exhibits will immediately follow the Meet the Exhibitors Session.
Space will be available for freestanding displays and tabletop exhibits. The Exhibition Fee includes a ten-foot long space with a table and two chairs. No signage or booth dividers will be provided by USCID. Only 22 spaces are available. Confirmed booth assignments are shown on the floor plan. Booth assignments will be made in the order that the Reservation Form and payment are received. To be listed in the on-site program, exhibit reservations must be made by September 30.
Exhibitor setup is Tuesday afternoon from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m. Tear down will occur between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. on Thursday.
The Exhibition Fee is $795 ($635 for USCID Corporate Members); the Exhibition Fee for Conference Sponsors is $650. The Exhibition Fee includes participation in all Conference activities, Tuesday through Friday, for one Exhibitor representative. Each representative will receive the Conference registration packet, which will include a list of Conference Participants and the Proceedings. Additional staff members from exhibiting firms are welcome to participate in Conference activities, but will be expected to pay the Exhibitor Staff Registration Fee of $350 per participant.

In addition to Exhibition opportunities, Sponsorships are available for Conference events and products. Sponsorships provide an excellent opportunity to market your organization to the water resources professionals who will attend the Conference.
Sponsors of the Conference Proceedings CD will also receive recognition on the Title Page and in the Foreword. A one-page ad is also included. Because of printing deadlines, the Sponsorship Reservation must be received by September 16.

Pre-payment of Exhibits and Sponsorships is required to guarantee the exhibit space or your Sponsorship selection.
Please note: as Sponsorships are assigned, the list of Sponsorship Options above will include the sponsoring company or organization. Sponsor names will also be added to the online Conference web page, providing additional "exposure" for our Sponsors.
