Greetings Sponsors!

On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, we are pleased to announce the 2020 Conference on Bird Damage Management this February 10-14, at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center! As you probably know, blackbirds, starlings, corvids and vultures cause severe damage to agriculture commodities and livestock facilities, transmit disease to humans and animals, are destructive to personal property, and are a safety concern at airports. The Bird Damage Management Conference is a venue in which professionals from all over the country can gather to discuss and share management approaches, research strategies, policy, and messaging around the management of blackbirds, starlings, corvids, and black vultures. Our main focus is on developing successful (cost effective and environmentally sound) strategies and tools for bird damage mitigation. It is also an excellent opportunity to showcase businesses and organizations to the many industry professionals who gather at the conference to learn and network.

It is our pleasure to invite your organization to be a sponsor for the 2020 Bird Damage Management Conference. As a sponsorship partner, your organization will receive extensive visibility and recognition through many outlets based upon sponsorship level. We will include your organization's name and logo on signage, in the official conference program, in the Sponsor Product handout given to each attendee, and in the Sponsor Section of the conference web site with a link to your organization. In appreciation for your contribution your name and logo will be in our promotional materials, and we will acknowledge your assistance at all appropriate opportunities. Higher sponsorship levels will also receive complimentary booth space and complimentary registrations.

The 2020 Bird Damage Management Conference is sure to provide a rewarding, educational, and fun atmosphere to interact with your customers and constituents. Please take a few minutes to review the sponsorship opportunities outlined below and decide which best suits your needs. To ensure participation, contact us as soon as possible.
