Information for Sponsors

The IRC2018 organizers are pleased to offer sponsorship opportunities at IRC2018. Sponsors will benefit from the following opportunities:

  • Connection to the largest, globally organized event of the rice industry
  • Access to key policymakers and industry leaders
  • Access to hundreds of the world’s leading rice scientists and researchers
  • A unique opportunity to connect their company to the world’s most important food crop

Various sponsorship options are described in the following list, from which sponsors may select different elements corresponding to the level of their financial support. Companies can sponsor an element individually or—where possible, acceptable to all, and appropriate—in combination with another sponsor. If a sponsor wants to organize an event before, during, or after the Congress, it must have the approval of the organizers. Sponsors cannot stage their own event parallel to Congress events. In addition to the general sponsorship of single items, congress organizers are offering companies the opportunity to be a special sponsor.

All sponsors will be treated on a first come, first served basis. Attractive rebates will be extended to sponsors signing up before 31 July 2018.

The organizers will not be liable for the fulfilment of sponsorship items if non-delivery is due to any of the following: the facility being damaged or destroyed by fire, an act of God, a public enemy, war, or insurrection; strike; the authority of the law; postponement or cancellation of the event; or any cause beyond their control. If the organizers are unable to hold the event for any of the abovementioned reasons, they will, however, reimburse sponsors on a pro-rated basis on any amount paid in, less any and all legitimate expenses incurred, such as but not limited to rent, advertising, salaries, operating costs, etc.

The organizers are able to tailor a package suitable to the objectives of sponsors. If you have any particular requests on how you would like to present your company at the Congress, please contact the IRC2018 Secretariat at

Do note that organizers reserves the right to effect changes in the sponsorship categories at its own discretion.
