Sponsorship/Exhibit Contract

Note: this contract must be signed by all sponsors/exhibitors.

Sponsorships are available on a first come, first served basis at the discretion of the Planning Committee. Sponsorship preferences will be considered and assigned in the order that applications are received. Receipt of your application will be confirmed via email. An invoice will be sent shortly thereafter for your review and execution and all payments will be due in full prior to the meeting per the terms of the agreement. Sponsorships are not considered secure until PIUG has received and confirmed acceptance of a signed, written agreement. Please also note that any special events, such as organized social events or training seminars during and around the conference days, must be formally pre-approved by the Planning Committee.

We encourage our sponsors and exhibitors to submit an abstract for presentation. Please note that the Program Committee reserves the right to consider abstract submissions from all sponsors and exhibitors based on their merits as technical talks. Please contact a member of the Program Committee if you have questions.

We hope you will decide to support the excellent technical programming of the PIUG, designed to provide new learning and networking opportunities for the patent information community. We look forward to hearing from you or your staff on or before April 6, 2007 on your positive decision to support the 2007 PIUG Conference at Costa Mesa, CA.

Please note that sponsors and exhibitors are prohibited from holding workshops and other events within 50 miles of the conference site during the conference week and the three days preceding and following the conference, unless agreed to in writing by the PIUG Planning Committee or formally agreed to in the sponsorship contract.
