DRIVE/ Conference 2019

Sponsorship Opportunities

We invite your company to participate in the DRIVE/ Conference, the only U.S. event that offers a focused learning experience for education institutions and other nonprofit organizations to explore all things data.

DRIVE/ is a must-attend event for any company that provides data and analytics solutions and technologies. It's the ideal venue for companies to showcase their brand, demonstrate their solutions and share their expertise to the nonprofit sector.

  • 1 in 5 education institutions plan to at least double their analytics budget in the next 12-18 months. (Ellucian Study 2018, "What will it take to build an analytics-driven campus?" of higher ed leaders)

  • 42% of nonprofits said they lack tools to help analyze data. (State of Data in the Nonprofit Sector survey of nonprofit professionals conducted by everyaction/nonprofit hub.org

  • The number one way that nonprofit professionals reported learning about trends, technologies and approaches to data management and analytics is attend conferences and tradeshows. (Source: CASE 2018 survey to - Previous DRIVE/ Attendees and CASE members)


For the first time, DRIVE/ 2019 will be held in Baltimore, Maryland, a convenient location centrally located near thousands of leading education institutions and nonprofit organizations.

  • More than 60 percent of the 2,500+ CASE member education institutions are located in regions that are within a quick drive or short flight to Baltimore. 
  • Thousands of leading hospitals and care, science and technology, health and human services, arts and culture, and other nonprofit organizations at the $1M+ annual fundraising level are close to Baltimore.
