Connect with Marine Debris Professionals

The Sixth International Marine Debris Conference (6IMDC) will bring together more than 600 participants from around the world, including policy and decision makers, multinational agencies, coastal and ocean resource managers, waste management representatives, scientists, planners, academics, public sector groups, private industry, academia, and civil society. With attendees traveling from around the globe, the 6IMDC will facilitate connections and transcend geographic boundaries, bringing the marine debris community together.


Be a Part of the Solution

The 6IMDC will be a forum for interdisciplinary education and discussion of issues surrounding marine debris. Speakers will debate in plenary sessions, creating an awareness of issues, successes, and gaps, and offering opportunities for innovative solutions to problems. In concurrent sessions, attendees will share cutting-edge research and strategies, sparking new ideas. As a sponsor, you can attend and participate in the discovery.

Advance the Zero Waste Movement

In addition to supporting the conference as a whole, the 6IMDC is looking for sponsors to help offset costs associated with providing valuable zero waste services to reduce the event’s impact. Your contribution towards maintaining and expanding the zero waste initiative with the diversion of non-hazardous waste from the landfills through recycling, composting, reducing, reusing, and upcycling.


Enhance Your Branding

Sponsors will have ample opportunity to interact with conference attendees at sessions, lunches, and receptions. Highly-visible formal recognition will be given to sponsors in all conference materials including the registration packet, final program, conference proceedings, and during individually sponsored events.


Your Involvement is Crucial

A successful conference is not possible without conference sponsors. If corporate or government agency giving restrictions apply, sponsorships will be acknowledged as support for the conference within the range of permissible activities.
