OPTIONAL ADD-ON (for Platinum, Gold, Silver or Exhibitors)
Partner Spotlight: $1,000

This year there will be four dedicated 15-minute speaking opportunities to educate attendees about your company’s new, must-have product or platform! We are asking our partners to pair up with a practitioner for the presentation. This will provide our conference attendees with information about your product/platform and they can hear how it was used by a colleague. These spotlights will be presented in a plenary room during a high-traffic time of the conference, maximizing the visibility for our partners.

Platinum sponsors, gold sponsors, silver sponsors and exhibitors are eligible to submit applications. If you are interested in applying, please check the box on page six of this packet. Presentations will be reviewed and selected by the QRCA Conference Speaker Committee Chairs based on content for qualitative researcher needs. Applications must be submitted by August 1, 2019 to be considered in the review process.


Payment must accompany application to guarantee sponsorship. At checkout, remember to indicate the number of included registrants who plan to attend, as well as the number of additional registrants ($945*/person). QRCA will send you a form requesting your company representatives’ names later in the year. *After December 11, 2019, rates go up to $1,095 each.

If you prefer, you may download the Sponsorship/Exhibitor Prospectus and mail or fax with payment to the QRCA office. If you have questions, contact Jake at jacobn@qrca.org.
