Sponsorship Opportunities

A limited number of sponsorships ranging from $10,000-75,000 are available. Contact Conference Director Pamela Schwartz for additional information at pschwartz@bsr.org. Please note that sponsorships do not include speaking roles of any kind. In addition, to ensure that we produce the most sustainable event possible, there is no trade show or exhibit hall.

Content Creation and Speaking Opportunities

As we build out the 2017 global program, our objective is to balance a wide range of issues and formats while maintaining diversity of content and presenters. Please note that BSR does not administer an open submission process for Conference sessions, and we do not accept speaker submissions.

Speaking roles are determined by BSR’s Conference team with input from senior management and staff, and participation is by invitation only. We greatly appreciate the wide interest in the BSR Conference and are grateful for the success and growth we continue to achieve. Please check this site often for program information and updates.
