Sponsors and Exhibitors

You’re invited to be a Regards to Rural Sponsor.

RDI’s Regards to Rural conference is an opportunity for diverse rural leaders to learn from one another, to be exposed to innovative ideas and models that work, and to gain renewed energy and inspiration to bring their community vision to life and make a measurable difference in their communities and regions.

The conference draws people from rural places throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond who are engaged in community building and economic revitalization efforts. What started as a one-time anniversary gathering to inform, inspire, and celebrate rural life has grown into a unique and vibrant event that gives grassroots leaders a chance to come together to learn cutting-edge ideas, acquire new skills, share ideas, and make essential contacts to help them succeed in strengthening their communities.

RDI works hard to secure the funding necessary to not only make the conference possible, but accessible. Regards to Rural is not a fundraiser for RDI; all sponsorships go to drastically defray the cost of the conference to participants.

Sponsorship Opportunities
Platinum Sponsor: $10,000
Gold Sponsor: $5,000
Silver Sponsor: $2,500
Bronze Sponsor: $1,000

All sponsors will be recognized and promoted in all event materials for the conference, on the RDI website and social media, and in the RDI newsletter. For more detailed sponsor benefits package information, please contact Jennifer Clemo.
