On Campus Student Representative
A great way to elevate your company’s profile, products and services is by working with a student representative. Our community of close-knit students and faculty allows for more opportunity to interact with your student representative, and to promote your products and services.
Promotion on the Boucher Vendor Wall
Being featured on the Boucher Institute Sponsorship Wall ensures that your promotional material is regularly viewed by Boucher students, guest-lecturers, faculty and staff. Advertisements of the sponsor’s choice are filled by the Sponsor’s student representative, who will additionally offer information on upcoming product releases, paint an image of the corporate profile, and speak to upcoming events your company is hosting or participating in.
Lunchtime Information Sessions or Product Information Booth
During our lunchtime information sessions, students and company reps meet in an informal setting to discuss sponsor-specific news, product information, and upcoming events. The student-representative may host up to three lunchtime info sessions or vendor-booth sessions during the lunch hour, commensurate with the sponsor’s level of contribution.
Vendor Page on eCampus
Your company will be profiled on our main page on Boucher’s eCampus student portal site.
On-Campus Lunchtime Vendor Fair
Boucher hosts bi-annual vendor fairs on campus to encourage students to increase their knowledge of the products and services available to the naturopathic community. All students, staff, and faculty are invited to attend the vendor fairs, and the sponsor’s participation is to be organized by the sponsor’s student representative.
Your corporate sponsorship status grants wholesale ordering capabilities of your products and services to the Boucher students. Such access provides your company with an effective means of promoting individual health, and establishes product familiarity amongst the Boucher students.
Munch and Learns (lunch or dinner)
Hosting a munch and learn presentation helps Boucher students, faculty, and staff stay current with your company’s research and product developments.
