Conference Sponsorship

The McGill Conference on Global Food Security provides your organization with a unique opportunity to gain visibility among a group of prominent, successful and entrepreneurial individuals who are committed to ending world hunger.

We anticipate conference attendance to exceed 400 participants, comprised of international scholars and development experts, agricultural specialists, policy makers, Ministers of government, academics and university students, as well as numerous key international organizations. The participants will help to define a Framework for Action at the end of the conference, which will enable them and their organizations to pursue actions leading to global food security.

As one of the sponsors of the McGill Conference on Global Food Security, your organization will be provided with an array of opportunities – based on your level of support – that will give you prominent visibility throughout the two-day event.
