The CPIC Conference's tuition fees are subsidized by our sponsors. It is apparent to our attendees which companies and agencies visibly have a presence and support the continuing educational efforts and best practices within our community. Firms that compete and are established in this niche community are encouraged to sponsor and have an approachable vendor space where career opportunities, accounts/ clients, white papers, tools and core capabilities can be showcased. Demonstrations are encouraged.

During 2017, we showcased tools, technologies, white papers, best practices and solutions for portfolio management, investment management, governance and how to incorporate reporting on challenges such as AGILE, FITARA, Big Data trends, FEDRAMP and more. For this purpose there was a series of sponsorships specifically allowing industry presentations this one year in increments of thirty minutes. No sales pitches - it had to be best practices, models, research, tool functionality demos, statistics - information useful to a practitioner or decision maker.
