Atrium Discussion

Join us 15-19 May 2017 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA for the IWA’s 19th International Symposium on Health-Related Water Microbiology Conference and UNC’s Water Microbiology Conference.  The two events will run concurrently and will draw together the world’s leading water and environmental microbiological researchers and practitioners to focus on issues at the intersection of public health and water microbiology.

The conference is a blend of interactive workshops with scientific symposia, poster socials and networking events. It offers participants a variety of opportunities to exchange ideas, debate challenging topics, and explore potential collaborations.

You are invited to participate in both conferences at a leadership level with a Major Sponsorship Package.

Participating in a leadership role through sponsorship builds brand awareness among practitioners, researchers, and policymakers who attend the conference, as well as communicates your organization’s accomplishments, partnerships, products and services.

Sponsorship also provides scholarships and support to authors from the developing world who wish to attend the Conference and need assistance.  Sponsorship levels and the associated benefits may be found below.

To become a sponsor or ask a question, contact Heather Pace at heather.pace@unc.edu.
