CNU's annual Congress is the premier opportunity to discuss emerging issues, debate strategies, learn new approaches, and to network with friends, new and old. Our 29th annual Congress will be held virtually, May 19-21, 2021, giving CNU an opportunity to develop online programming that challenges and transforms our attendees.
The spirit of the Congress is the same, but the virtual platform will allow for an even bigger and more accessible gathering of passionate urbanists from around the world, increasing the impact for CNU 29 sponsors.
Virtual sponsors have access to an array of benefits, from general exposure to attendees to the ability to leverage Congress programming to meet their own goals–supporting government and businesses' continued learning, catalyzing local community engagement, and connecting thought leaders, communities, and business leaders with design professionals in the areas of health, education, design, development, and transportation.
All CNU 29 sponsors receive a dedicated page on the event website and mobile app, recognition on CNU’s website and in Congress communications, an invitation to our virtual sponsor reception, and social media shout-outs. Additional benefits are available to sponsors at higher levels as outlined below. Additionally, sponsorships pledged and recieved by December 31, 2020 will be recognized at the next highest level.
Custom benefits and sponsorship packages are available. Contact Abby Sheridan for more information. The deadline to fulfill CNU 29.Design For Change pledges is April 30, 2021.
