Sponsorship Opportunities

The Maryland Tech Council is proud of the sponsorship packages that we maintain, and we are always adding new events and features to further enhance your experience and grow your business.

We offer comprehensive sponsorship packages that include everything from company listings, to VIP reception invites, to the opportunity to introduce world-renowned technology and life science executives. Most importantly, sponsorships give you and your staff the ability to mingle with key business decision makers, important political figures, and respected members of the academic community.

Whether you are building a startup or further expanding your company, an MTC sponsorship will provide you with the exposure you need.

Make MTC sponsorships part of your marketing plan. It’s more than just a sponsorship. It’s a good investment in your company’s future.

Please note, if you sponsor more than $10,000, you are automatically a part of our Signature Partner program. For more information on sponsorship opportunities or Signature Partnerships, please contact Wendy Worm, Vice President of Marketing and Programs, at Wendy@mdtechcouncil.com.
