Company Sponsorship Opportunities

The AAPG/SEG Student Expo gives you a cost-efficient avenue to link with potential new hires and interns to see their work and skills in a unique environment. There are two levels of participation to meet your recruiting needs: Platinum Exhibitor and Silver. Sponsorship of special events is also available for those seeking a higher profile visibility for their company.

Special Sponsorship Opportunities

In addition to the above sponsorship options, companies may also sponsor:

  • Breakfast - $5,000
  • Coffee Break (day 1) - $5,000
  • Coffee Break (day 2) - $5,000
  • Lunch - $10,000

Partial sponsorship is welcome for these special categories mentioned above. Please contact for more information on these opportunities.

All sponsors of additional events will be gratefully recognized with 4 additional interview booths. These additional booths are generally offered in private interview rooms. However, due to the demand for these interview rooms (including 4 booths), priority for these rooms will be given to sponsors making the largest contributions.

Poster Judging

We welcome earth scientists of every technical expertise as Poster judges. Poster judging will take place Monday evening, 5-9 p.m. during the Ice Breaker. Poster judges that complete the judging forms are not considered additional company personnel. Earth scientists interested in judging should commit their time to Jake Seigel (

Field Trips

Recruiters are welcome to accompany the students on the Coastal Field Trip and attend the short courses on Monday. This is a great opportunity to see the students in a very informal teaching atmosphere. If you or any of your people are interested, please contact Sushanta Bose (

Also of interest, the Expo Committee has been discussing ways to encourage poster session participants from the students. We believe the posters are a student's best way to generate interest from recruiters. Feedback from our participating recruiters support this. One idea is to offer students who submit and exhibit their poster the opportunity to enter a lottery. Lottery winners would be offered an exclusive, small group (six person) lunch with an oil company executive. We would like to offer your company the chance to participate in this program. Please let us know by 15 August if a company executive would like to host six students for lunch on the opening day of the Expo, Monday, 8 September. We will work with you to finalize the logistics at a later date.
