Sponsorship Opportunities

Geneva Centre for Autism’s International Symposium brings together over 1300 professionals, researchers, educators, parents, and service providers from around the world to learn about the latest research and clinical practices in the field of autism.

We’ve been holding this conference since 1986 and it would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. By partnering with Geneva Centre for Autism, you play an important role in helping create new possibilities for children, youth and adults with autism. You will also benefit from significant brand exposure and the opportunity to connect with our delegates and showcase your products and services.

There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available to suit your capacity. To confirm or discuss sponsorship or activation opportunities please contact
