Why join as sponsor and/or exhibitor

GLRC2018 Fast Facts

The INCOSE Vision 2025 describes a landscape of opportunities, challenges, and evolving approaches to engineering the world of the future – a world of “systems”. Many of these issues represent “crossroads” that will require conscious choices and action leading in new directions.

“GLRC2018: Systems at the Crossroads” will feature keynote sessions from SE thought-leaders, presentations from SE practitioners & academia, panel-discussions on important SE topics, world-class workshops/tutorials from SE experts, and other opportunities for professional development and networking.  Those delivering content will cover a breadth of information around key decisions or “crossroads” that are common in multiple product domains and applications.

Friday, October 19th, will feature an INCOSE Systems Engineering Professional Development Day (SE PDD). This will be a virtual extension of the conference, with featured sessions broadcast from Indianapolis to satellite sites in multiple states.

Building on the success of the STEM demonstration at last year’s conference, GLRC2018 is working to encourage and to engage local area youth, through another STEM demonstration during the conference banquet reception and other activities.

Primarily, GLRC2018 will draw individuals involved in systems engineering within the Great Lakes region.  However, previous attendees have come from across the country and even internationally, and attendees are not limited to INCOSE members or even to systems engineers.  Between the primary and satellite sites, GLRC2018 anticipates well over 200 attendees whose common interest is the successful advancement of systems that are vital to our regional and global prosperity.

The Exhibit Area will be open throughout the two core days of the conference (October 18th - 19th).  Additionally, there will be dedicated times for Exhibits, Sponsors and Networking, including a special opening-night reception to welcome attendees and to thank the Sponsors & Exhibitors.

A variety of other media and opportunities will provide Sponsors & Exhibitors with positive visibility to attendees and to friends of the conference; these are detailed for each of the sponsorship levels.
