Event Sponsorships

Event Sponsorships

Promotional and sponsorship opportunities are available to interested parties. All sponsorship and advertisement opportunities are designed to provide organization and brand promotion at a variety of levels and price points. This gives our exhibitors and sponsors the opportunity to showcase new products and services, as well as showcase details and demonstrations where applicable. All collateral must be submitted to MDA for approval prior to production.

Sponsorship contributions help support MDA’s mission through:

  • Research efforts to accelerate development of treatments and cures
  • Expert clinical care using MDA’s nationwide Care Center Network
  • Meaningful community programs and services

For more information on how to secure your conference sponsorship, please contact Pam Bittner at pbittner@mdausa.org.
