The Annual Meeting provides an excellent forum to exhibit products and services and interact with key people involved in aquatic plant management throughout the country. The Exhibit Hall is also the site of daily continental breakfasts and refreshment breaks as well as the Monday evening Poster Reception to increase interactions and discussion among Exhibitors and meeting attendees. We are confident that your time and investment in this meeting will be worthwhile.

The APMS Annual Meeting is the most ambitious education and outreach event organized by the Society. This meeting would be impossible without the generous contributions of the meeting sponsors. Responding to suggestions from our members and sponsors, the APMS Board has implemented several changes that correspond with different levels of meeting sponsorship. Sponsors at all levels will continue to be recognized in the Annual Meeting Program, on the APMS web site, and at individual meeting events. Additionally, Platinum and Gold Level Sponsors now have an opportunity to present new product research or novel uses of their products or services that forward aquatic plant management during the Annual Meeting Program. Platinum Level Sponsors will be granted ten minutes and 5 minutes will allotted to Gold Level Sponsors. To be eligible for this sponsorship benefit, sponsorship payment and an abstract must be received by April 30 to place among all presentations in the Annual Meeting Program.

Please see the chart below for sponsorship levels and recognition for your contributions to support the 2017 Annual Meeting.

For information on becoming a meeting sponsor, please contact (863-514-6934; kdjones@ufl.edu) or Jeremy Slade (662-617-4571; APMS14@Hotmail.com).
