Complimentary Registrations

Sponsors will receive a coupon code for their complimentary registrations. Complimentary registrations do not include tutorials.

Main Hall Signage

Sponsors can raise their posters, free-standing banners, or other signage in the mail hall outside the meeting rooms. Sponsors must provide all materials.

T-Shirt Display

Sponsor logos will appear on the back of the conference T-shirts. Please provide us a high-resolution black-and-white image of your organization logo at least four weeks before the conference.

Tote Bag Inserts

Sponsors can provide printed flyers or small promotional items to be placed in conference tote bags. Please provide such materials one week before the conference begins. To avoid shipping charges, you can have materials printed locally. We have used and recommend Staples for this purpose. They have an online Copy and Print Center which we use for our our materials. By arrangement, we can pick up your printing prior to the conference and invoice you for the printing. Staples does not accept online payment for this service. We use this Staples location:

Staples Ottawa Core
403 Bank Street
Ottawa, ON K2P 1Y6
+1 (613) 235-2525

The University of Ottawa also has a print center which is very close to the conference venue. All promotional material should delivered, or ready for pickup, no sooner than 25 May and not later than 29 May.

Permitted Endorsement

Proudly declare your support of BSDCan on your web site, flyers, tattoos, or other promotional material.

Exhibition Table

We will reserve an 8-foot table with two chairs and an electrical outlet in the exhibition hall for your organization's promotional efforts.

Web Site and Opening/Closing Mentions

Your organization will be listed on our sponsors page, with a link to your organization. Your logo will appear in the slides for the opening and closing sessions and the presenter will thank you.
