SPONSORSHIP

CALL FOR SPONSORS

We wish to thank all of the organizations and individuals who are already sponsors of the WMMC 19!
It is not too late to be a sponsor!  If you are interested in supporting the WMMC, please contact us directly at sponsors@wmmconference.org.

WMMC’19 is an initiative of the Society for Marine Mammalogy and the European Cetacean Society and is being co-organized by SUBMON and the University of Barcelona. The conference will bring together scientists, managers, policy-makers, educators and students from all across the globe to discuss the world’s most exciting science and pressing conservation issues.

The WMMC’19 offers an unparalleled opportunity to engage an interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue in order to foster international collaborations that will impact our understanding of marine mammal science and conservation.

All prices listed below are in USD.

Due to printing timelines, sponsorship agreements that occur after 29 October cannot be included in the Conference printed materials, but will be prominently posted on the WMMC website, in the electronic program,  and at the Conference.
