MAPS Conference 2020 – Sponsor Information

Dear MAPS Supporter,

The staff of the Jet Blue Sky Theater Planetarium at The Cradle of Aviation would like to
invite you to join us from April 22 – 25, 2020 for the MAPS 2020 conference. The gathering, as always, is a great time for MAPS Members to re-connect, brainstorm ideas for education programming, and share with each other all of the wonderful things that we are doing at our home planetariums!

The theme of this year’s conference is “Reaching Beyond the Stars”. Planetariums are
known for showing people the farthest reaches of the universe. Recently our scope has been growing to incorporate everything from what is too big and too far to what is too small or too slow. We hope that this theme encourages workshops, lessons, papers, posters, and panels that reflect the various topics and programs seen in planetariums.

We hope that you will consider serving as a sponsor for the 2020 MAPS conference! Our goal is to provide ample opportunities for you to interact with conference attendees in several ways. Some of the features for sponsors at MAPS 2020 are:

  • DOME TIME in the Jet Blue Sky Theater Planetarium.
  • VENDOR HALL – The Vendor Hall will be in close proximity to meal and break areas, and the conference schedule will include times where delegates are encouraged to interact with vendors.
  • EDUCATIONAL VENDOR WORKSHOPS – Vendors may offer a workshop to demonstrate and educate existing and prospective clients about the use of their equipment, software or content materials. This will incur added sponsor fees as shown in the sponsor schedule of fees.

Should you choose to join us, please make your selection of options on the Vendor/Sponsor Form and send with payment and registrations for all your attending representatives to Talia Sepersky. We hope to see you on Long Island this coming April!

Kerri Kiker, Conference Host
& Your MAPS Executive Board
