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 SubSTEC6 are listed below. To register your interest, click on the name of the sponsorship.

Delegates to the SIA Conferences will each receive a high quality Conference Handbook containing the program and essential conference information.  Abstracts and speakers' biographies will be incorporated into the WHOVA App system.  We expect the handbooks to be used as a year-round resource to reference contacts made at the Conference.  In an environment replete with decision-makers, placement of an advertisement in the Handbook provides an outstanding opportunity to lift a company's profile.
