The Organizing Committee of HYDRO2015 would like to extend to you an invitation to participate in the conference by sponsoring, advertising and/or exhibiting.

We will support our sponsors to ensure they receive maximum return on their investment and receive the exposure to which we agreed to.

Since each potential sponsor has a different set of objectives, requirements and budget; a number of alternative sponsorship options have been made available which allows one to choose one which meets those particular requirements.

There will be only a few select advertising opportunities available. These will feature in the Book of Abstracts & Program as well as on all our electronic communications to all Plato members and other databases worldwide.

Our sponsors and advertisers will all enjoy full recognition for the duration of the conference as is relevant to the sponsorship opportunity decided upon.

QPS is a software design company specialized in Hydrographic and Maritime applications. The main activity of QPS is focused on system integration and the development of software systems that are used for hydrographic surveys and seafloor mapping. Modern Hydrographic workflow starts with data collection and input through validation and visualization. Then produces data deliverables including hydrographic maps and electronic navigational charts (ENC), and then stretches as far as sharing data through connected and disconnected systems. Fundamental to this workflow is the use of common data files and the avoidance of intermediate exchange data files. Acquire – Validate – Visualize – Share using QINSy, Qimera, Fledermaus, ArcGIS.

Exhibitors
The Organizing Committee of HYDRO2015 would like to extend to you an invitation to participate in the conference by sponsoring, advertising and/or exhibiting.

The Exhibition will be held indoors and will consist of approximately 45-52 Stands where Manufacturers and Professional Service Providers will be able to showcase products and services to potential clients throughout Africa. Manufacturing companies as well as suppliers of equipment such Hydrographic survey equipment, DGPS, subsea positioning, survey software, ROV, AUV etc. to mention but a few, will be expected to exhibit at the conference. In addition, private companies that provide an array of surface and subsea services will also be exhibiting at the conference. Furthermore academic institutions and government sectors that are involved in the production or use of hydrography will also be exhibiting. The exhibition area is particularly favourable as every effort has been made to ensure maximum delegate traffic. For instance, lunches and teas will be served in the exhibition area which is situated on the ground floor of the convention centre so that delegates have sufficient interaction with the exhibitors. The exhibition will provide an excellent opportunity for the various exhibitors to market their products and services.

SOCIAL PROGRAM
The Welcome Function will be held on the 23rd November in the Exhibition Areal and we would therefore request that Exhibitors man their stands during this event.

To secure seats for the Gala dinner taking place at a venue still to be decided on the 24th November please visit the registration page after 1 June 2015.
