The American Rock Mechanics Association invites you to participate in the 52nd US Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium to be held in Seattle, Washington, USA on 17-20 June 2018. This year, the symposium will be followed by the 2nd International Discrete Fracture Network Engineering (DFNE) Conference 20-22 June 2018. Wednesday 20 June will be a combined day. Both events will be held at the Westin Seattle, and we encourage all delegates, sponsors and exhibitors to participate in both events.

ARMA Seattle 2018 will focus on new and exciting advances in all areas of rock mechanics, rock engineering, and geomechanics. The symposium expects to attract up to 700 delegates from the United States, North America, and internationally. The international DFNE 2018 Conference expects over 200 delegates from industry, consulting, academia, and government. The plenary, technical and trade exhibition program is organized with importance placed on providing supporters maximum exposure and interaction with this audience of industry leaders and decision-makers.

The following pages highlight the benefits of sponsoring ARMA/DFNE Seattle 2018 at various levels and price points for all budgets. Continuing from 2017 are the Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze levels that include excellent exposure before, during, and after the symposium, as well as complimentary delegate packages. Numerous single-event sponsorships are also available. Choose an overall level of support to gain the exposure you’re looking for, or combine one of our levels with an event sponsorship to increase your visibility during one of the popular networking and social events. Sponsorship opportunities start as low as $500, ensuring that all companies can participate at some level. We look forward to discussing the various options and how we can meet your budget and marketing objectives.
