Patrons and Exhibitors

The 36th Great Lakes Biomedical Conference and the 2015 IEEE Annual Meeting are pleased to offer your organization the opportunity to become an official sponsor. The Great Lakes Biomedical Conference is a well-respected venue for approximately 100 practicing engineers, professors, and students to join together for technical papers, workshops, and seminars about biomedical engineering and biomedical applications.

The IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advanced technology for humanity with more than 430,000 members worldwide. IEEE-USA is the geographical unit of IEEE supporting the education, career development, and public policy interests of the U.S. IEEE membership. The IEEE-USA Annual Meeting provides three days of advanced leadership training to the practicing engineers that make up the IEEE-USA volunteer network. These volunteers organize and execute community service projects, training workshops, technical seminars, career development events, and social networking events in their local communities. The IEEE Milwaukee Section is proud to host the more than 200 engineers from around the United States expected to converge on Milwaukee in May for this advanced leadership training.

Both of these premier events are perfect venues for your organization to showcase its strengths to the current workforce of practicing engineers as well as to the students that will form the next generation workforce. Our attendees are leaders in engineering, computer science and engineering technology. Sponsorship provides visibility for your company or institution and helps the planning committee create a more desirable conference environment for our guests. There are many ways to sponsor outlined in table form on the next page.
