Training Conference Vendor Sponsorship

AFQAM  promotes standardized practices and professionalism in quality assurance management in forensic science. Many of our members are primary decision makers regarding the purchase of products and services utilized by private and governmental forensic operations across the country and around the world.


Why Sponsor the Conference?

We would like to invite your company to be represented at this event as a vendor whose products and services may be of interest to the members of our Association.

Since AFQAM members represent decision makers for laboratories from across the United States and around the world, this would be an excellent opportunity to familiarize your company name and product(s), keep updated on customer needs, form new clientele, and inform forensic scientists of the new technologies or products which may be forthcoming.

We have several opportunities for your company to share your products and services at this venue, including vendor tables in the exhibit room, break sponsorships, a vendor reception or evening event sponsorship, lunch sponsorships, literature inserts, and donation of door prizes or other promotional gifts to be included in a welcome bag for all attendees. During the conference, your company’s contribution to AFQAM will be shared with attendees through announcements, signage, and/or inclusion in the program.

Connecting conference attendees with companies that provide critical quality products, services, and solutions fulfills an integral objective of the AFQAM conference. In order to accommodate this objective, the conference schedule and layout facilitate maximum attendee/vendor interaction. This is achieved through vendor exhibits that will be adjacent to meeting rooms and open to attendees on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday as well as an invitation to all attendees to a Tuesday evening vendor reception
