Sponsorship & Exhibitor information

Sponsor/Exhibitor Registration is Open!

The Western Association of Graduate Schools (WAGS) cordially invites you to attend and become a sponsor of the 64th Annual Meeting, March 21–23, 2022. This year's conference will be held entirely online in a virtual conference setting. 

Virtual Conference
This year’s conference will be offered entirely virtually on a fully encompassing platform made for the desktop. The platform will allow attendees and exhibitors to interact in many of the ways we’re used to (1:1 meetings) but also create new opportunities for connecting (virtual exhibitor booths, online conference promotional opportunities, pre and post-conference networking, attendee chat boards, banner logo recognition and lead retrieval).

Corporate sponsorship/exhibitor information:
WAGS is an organization of approximately 100 member institutions of higher education in the western United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Pacific Rim that offer master’s and doctoral degrees. WAGS is a regional association affiliated with the Council of Graduate Schools. We strongly encourage corporations, companies and agencies that support or provide services for graduate education to sponsor the meeting and become WAGS members. Membership in WAGS is open to organizations, both for-profit and non-profit, who are engaged in graduate education or related services.

WAGS is a 501(c)(3) organization; your contribution may be tax deductible.
