Sponsorship Opportunities for NCDD 2018

NCDD’s 8th National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation is coming to Denver this November 2-4, to the Sheraton Denver Downtown. NCDD conferences bring together hundreds of the most active and influential people involved in public engagement and group process work across the U.S. and Canada, and we expect to draw over 400 people this year.

We hope you’ll consider supporting this important convening by becoming a sponsor of NCDD 2018. By supporting an NCDD conference, our sponsors are showing their leadership in and commitment to public engagement and innovative community problem solving to leaders and emerging leaders in our rapidly growing field.

Becoming an All-Star Sponsor ($10,000+), Collaborator ($5,000+) Co-Sponsor ($3,000), Partner ($2,000), or Supporter ($1,000) provides you with lots of PR, good will, and name recognition. NCDD conference sponsors are traditionally a “who’s who” of leading organizations in our field, and your organization could be among them this year!

You can download the sponsorship doc for full details, but here is a snapshot of the benefits of sponsorship:

This year, we are also providing additional opportunities to sponsor specific parts of the conference, such as our Friday Showcase Reception, and to purchase ads in the conference guidebook. These options are outlined in the sponsorship doc, and we’re open to discussing other ideas you may have!

We have had a great track record of attendance at our conferences over the years. Many of our peers’ national and international conferences have averaged around 150 to 200 attendees over the past few years. More than 3,400 people have attended NCDD’s national and regional events so far, and we expect to have 400 to 450 attendees join us at NCDD 2018 this fall.

Another reason to sponsor this year’s National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation is that NCDD’s sponsors are amazing! Our sponsors are some of the most innovative, exciting organizations working in our field. By sponsoring NCDD 2018, you will be featured alongside other organizations you can be very proud to associate with.

The logos of some of the organizations sponsoring our 2014 national conference are shown below, and our 2016 sponsors can be found on our sponsors page. As you can see, leading organizations in the dialogue and deliberation community really come out to support the conference, and we are extremely grateful.

Sponsorship support enables NCDD to charge reasonable registration rates for our conferences and even to offer some further registration discounts and scholarships, which increases the economic, age, and racial diversity of our attendees.

So please download the sponsorship document or share this page, and help support the 2018 National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation!


If you have any questions about sponsorship, or would like to discuss other ideas about how your organization can support the conference, send an email to NCDD founding director Sandy Heierbacher at sandy@ncdd.org and suggest a few times you’re available for a call.
