Why Sponsor?
Sponsors of the 2017 SPNHC Annual Meeting will enjoy increased access and exclusive privileges to interact with Society members, an international group whose mission is to improve the preservation, conservation and management of natural history collections to ensure their continuing value to society. SPNHC takes a leading role in promoting collections care issues to the academic community, governments, and the general public. Members are dedicated to training and mentoring the next generation of collections professionals. Collections professionals come from all over the world to attend SPNHC’s annual meetings. SPNHC conferences encourage quality interaction between vendors and meeting participants in various ways— a formal exhibit hall, coffee breaks held in the exhibit hall, and a late afternoon cocktail reception held in the exhibit hall. The Curtis will conveniently accommodate all SPNHC meeting activities on one floor to maximize opportunities for attendees and vendors to interact.

Why Come to Denver, Colorado?
Conveniently located, Denver is the gateway to both the Rocky Mountains and the eastern plains. It has a great deal to offer those who wish to explore its vibrant cultural community as well as those who are interested in more remote areas of Colorado. Colorado will be a popular destination for both pre- and post-conference travel. In addition to what will surely be a valuable program, we will offer tours of the recently constructed state-of-the-art Avenir Collections Center at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. For these great reasons, we expect high numbers of attendees.

The Annual Meeting
Traditional symposia, themed sessions, demo camps, workshops, and a plenary session are being planned around a theme that reflects the core aim of SPNHC to codify and disseminate best practices for the development, management, and care of natural history collections and their associated data. The annual tradeshow will bring together a host of vendors whose products and technologies help us meet the unique demands of 21st century collections care, access, and use, along with an important industry focus on being green. A variety of fieldtrips highlighting Colorado’s unique natural and cultural history will be offered. Collection tours of the Avenir Collections Center will be a highlight. Exciting social events will culminate in a gala celebration!
