2015 Baldrige Sponsorship Opportunities Are Available

Benefits: prominent recognition at Quest conference, recognition on Baldrige website, and more

Published: Thursday, January 22, 2015 - 12:41

(NIST: Gaithersburg, MD) -- Organizations and individuals are invited to help support the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program by becoming Baldrige sponsors. Sponsors support a range of products and services, including the 27th Annual Quest for Excellence Conference in Baltimore on April 12–15, 2015.

Sponsorship packages offer many benefits: prominent recognition and acknowledgement at the Quest conference; recognition on the Baldrige website; and, depending on the sponsorship level, exclusive post-attendee email lists, complimentary Quest conference registrations, and the opportunity to send employees to experience four days of Baldrige examiner training.

Sponsorship options yield two important outcomes: raising awareness for the sponsoring organization and providing tangible support for the Baldrige Program.

Organizations and individuals interested in becoming a Baldrige sponsor are asked to visit the Quest for Excellence Conference Sponsorship page and to review the 2015 Sponsorship Opportunities (PDF) for further details.

Sponsorships are vital to the success of the Baldrige Program, and sponsors are sincerely appreciated. The sponsor application process closes in February.

Select your sponsorship opportunity today.
