Dear ASC members,

The ASC conference is nearly upon us.

We've been working to bring in sponsors - and major organisations such as CSIRO, DIISRTE, ANSTO, Geoscience Australia, UTS, ABC, CPAS and others are supporting the conference.

But it dawned on me that the conference isn't giving the small businesses involved in the space an opportunity to have a shopfront and to be seen to be supporting the ASC community. The entry point for our sponsorship products is a bit too high for small businesses. Booths cost $5,000.

So the ASC is setting up a 'suppliers' space in the exhibition and catering area which will allow you to showcase your best projects and publications in a smaller space.

We're offering a 1.8 metre x 1.2 metre display Velcro compatible board. You can use the board space, or put your own pull up banner in front of it. The cost is $900 plus GST.

This conference will have a large representation of the people who collaborate and/or buy the services we each provide.

If several of us take a space then the display will demonstrate how science communication in Australia is growing up, professionalising, and that there are numerous specialist science communication businesses providing useful services.

Science in Public has already committed to a booth. Some other sponsorship options are also still available.

Together, it'll be a great way to highlight a growing community to potential clients.

If you're interested in taking up this offer please let me know.
