Become a Sponsor

SIMCAC is comprised of CIOs/CTOs/CDOs, their direct reports, prominent academicians, and other IT thought leaders (mostly past technology executives, now consultants). As such, it represents a concentrated audience of executives deeply involved in the products and services procurement process.

Sponsors are an important part of our community: providing thought leadership in key areas, helping to arrange and fund great programs, and supporting our charitable foundation activities. As such, we welcome opportunities to work with current and prospective sponsors to maximize the value of sponsorship.  We invite you to review our current offerings and to contact us to discuss.
