International Herb Symposium Sponsorship Opportunities

Hello Plant Savers!

We want to share some info about this year’s International Herbal Symposium with our business members and invite you to participate in this dynamic event that has been bringing together plant lovers and herbalists from around the world since 1991. 

This year’s virtual conference introduces a new online learning platform that will be available to IHS participants for a full 18-months. There will be over 100 classes representing over 20 countries, with the added bonus of featured class recordings from  past years! 

We humbly ask that you please help us spread the word with your followers! We are also accepting items for several special social media giveaways. Let us know if you would like to contribute a prize for some added exposure.

Sponsorship Opportunities Are Available 

The International Herb Symposium would not be possible without the incredibly generous support of our business members!

Reach over 50,000 people in the United States with event exposure through SOCIAL MEDIA inclusion – LOGO placements – WEBSITE links  CLASS sponsorships – eNEWS features 

One of the most exciting things about sponsoring the IHS this year is the ongoing opportunity to  connect with our participants over the next 18 months through the online platform and newsletters. This allows for sponsors to share their passion for plants and sustainable sourcing and engage with participants in a meaningful and authentic capacity. 

As United Plant Savers takes on the organizing of the IHS, we see this as an opportunity to expand and enhance the conservation and cultivation-focused classes and look to network a global community of plant savers. 

In the words of Jim Duke, “The herbal village isn’t so much a place or state of mind. It is in fact, a link  connecting everyone around the world who believes the secrets to good health and a good life can be  found in herbs, roots, and other “green” sources. We all live in a single herbal Village.” 

In becoming a sponsor of the International Herb Symposium, you will not only contribute to the expansion of this global community but will benefit from many other opportunities we have outlined for our event sponsors. 

Student Scholarships 

To provide wider accessibility to the symposium and classes, we are setting up a scholarship  program. Your sponsorship will help to fund this effort. 

Swag Bags 

We also plan to do giveaway packages that will include goodies from our sponsors such as promo  items and sample products. If you would like to participate in any of our giveaways leading up to  the event kick-off in June and continuing through the year, items can be sent to: United Plant Savers,  PO BOX 147, Rutland, OH 54775, for distribution to IHS participants and prize winners.
