About MRS

Sponsorships 

Sponsorship has become a key element of an aggressive marketing strategy. Investing in an MRS sponsorship can offer your company the exposure necessary for ensuring a successful networking experience and achieving maximum benefit from MRS meetings and exhibits. Official sponsors are recognized not just with the sponsored event, but also through prominent on-site signage and inclusion in the MRS Bulletin and MRS Program & Exhibit Guide. For a complete list of sponsorship opportunities, view a list of upcoming meetings where sponsorship opportunities may be available.
