Sponsorship & Advertising


Each conference run by the SIA provides a range of opportunities for sponsorship by organisations keen to have their message heard by the most submarine-focussed audience in the country.  With packages ranging from $1,000 up to $40,000 and coverage to match, there's sure to be something that will meet your needs.  But be quick, these opportunities usually sell out soon after they become available!

Currently available sponsorship opportunities for the 11th SIA Biennial Conference are listed below.  Specific benefits associated with each sponsorship type is available via this link.  To register your interest, please contact execmgr@submarineinstitute.com
