Corporate Sponsors/Exhibitors

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in our Spring and Fall events.  Attendees represent all levels and functional areas of Human Resources within the various NC higher education institutions.

Sponsorship is one of the best ways for your company to show commitment to academia and increase your company’s exposure, build brand loyalty, and stimulate sales among human resources decision makers in higher education.

Sponsorship is a fantastic opportunity for your company to:

  • Gain recognition
  • Develop and strengthen your brand awareness
  • Network with higher ed practitioners and leaders
  • Generate sales

We offer a broad variety of sponsorship opportunities:  You can choose a specific opportunity to sponsor an event at either one or both of our meetings, or you can partner with other sponsors at an event to host a specific session or program.  Interested in sponsoring an event or becoming a corporate partner?  Take a look at our upcoming events for details and sponsorship opportunities.

Your sponsorship and partnership go a long way in helping NC CUPA-HR provide high-quality programming and learning opportunities for higher ed HR professionals; and we strive to maximize your contributions and provide high-quality opportunities for you to network with higher ed HR decision-makers across North Carolina at our events.

 CUPA-HR Position Statement on Corporate Entertainment and Gifts

Effective January 1, 2019, Exhibitor giveaways and drawings will be permitted at CUPA-HR events. Giveaway and drawing prizes must be limited to a market value worth of $150 or less. Any exhibitor offering a giveaway or drawing worth more than $150 will be required to cease giveaway or drawing publicity immediately. CUPA-HR will not provide a forum for giveaways and drawings to be conducted or announced during face-to-face events. Communicating drawing and giveaway results will be the responsibility of individual exhibitors.

CUPA-HR allows exhibitors to hand out branded marketing collateral such as pens, Post-It notes, pads of paper, clip holders and the like from their booths during Expo open hours. We ask our exhibitors to be mindful of the ethics and limitations to which our attendees may be held by their universities.
