Call for Sponsors and Exhibitors

The 12th annual Great Lakes Regional Conference (GLRC2018) of the International Council on System Engineering (INCOSE) will take place at the Indianapolis Marriott East, from October 17th through 20th.  

The conference theme, “Systems at the Crossroads”, underscores the ever-increasing complexity of the world around us, the resulting strategic decisions of where and how to proceed, and the critical importance of systems thinking and systems engineering to manage such complexity.

Attendees from across the Great Lakes region (and beyond) will be looking to gain new insights and capabilities to address important crossroads issues in such critical sectors as aerospace, agriculture, biomedical & healthcare, defense, education, energy, environment, government, information, infrastructure, manufacturing, safety & security, and transportation.

Speakers, panel discussions, exhibits and networking opportunities will provide attendees with information and tools to take back to their respective organizations, colleagues, clients and managers, as well as for themselves.

Your company, institution or organization can show its support for this important event – and showcase its valuable contributions to the ongoing work on these crossroads issues – by sponsoring GLRC2018.

Please look through the detailed opportunities for sponsors & exhibitors, then choose to become an essential part of the GLRC2018 success-story.
