As the cold spray community and the industry grows, it is important that we remain connected well after the annual meeting has come and gone. For this reason, the action team has added additional annual benefits to our original sponsorship packages. These new benefits will allow for your company or team to be highlighted as leaders in the industry through the various media outlets CSAT now utilizes; our newsletter, YouTube, webinars and more.
Below are more in-depth descriptions of what the various level of sponsorship includes, so that you may choose the level that works best for you and your team.

Table signage grants you the right to place up to 1 2’ by 6’ banner (provided by sponsor) and 3” x 6” logos in plastic signs on the gathering tables near the eating space. Number of signs will be dependent on the number of tables. Note that depending on the number of sponsors at each level you may be sharing table signage space.
