Conference Sponsorships and Exhibits

The World Association for Public Opinion Research (WAPOR) is the leading professional organization of public opinion research professionals from around the world.  The organization includes leaders in academia, media, government and the private sector, all of whom understand the power of public opinion to shape and transform society. Properly conducted and disseminated survey research provides the public with a tool to measure opinions and attitudes in order to allow its voices to be heard.  WAPOR promotes the highest standards in public opinion research and is committed to promoting the freedom to conduct and publish scientific research on what the people and its groups think and how this thinking is influenced by various factors.

Our most visible annual activity, WAPOR’s annual conference gathers together leading survey research professionals and practitioners from all around the globe to discuss professional and methodological issues, to share information and to promote the development of the profession.  The conference is the largest gathering of new and old members and provides us the opportunity to meet colleagues face-to-face.  It’s also a fantastic opportunity for us, as an organization, to show our members which companies support the mission and ideals of WAPOR.

The WAPOR annual conference provides a range of affordable sponsorship choices.  We offer the opportunity to have your business name and logo on printed conference materials, conference signage, as well as on the conference website and in our newsletter.  We also offer the ability for you to choose to sponsor a specific item or event.  If you don’t see a sponsorship opportunity that suits you, contact us to discuss your options.
