You are cordially invited to be a SUPPORTER or EXHIBITOR at the upcoming 2014 Global Level Crossing Safety and Trespass Prevention Symposium (GLXS-2014) . GLXS-2014 will be the principal domestic and international gathering of the grade crossing safety and railroad trespasser prevention community this year. It will bring together international leaders in grade crossing safety, engineering, security, human factors and technology. We anticipate at least 300 attendees including railroad decision makers, state and federal government officials, academics and researchers from the global rail, highway, law enforcement and regulatory communities will be attending.

A wide range of presentation topics and interactive workshops will be offered during the symposium and will provide the latest developments from around the world. GLXS-2014 will be an extraordinary opportunity to connect with both the domestic and international grade crossing safety and railroad trespasser prevention communities.

As a SUPPORTER your contribution will be extensively acknowledged at the symposium and in the program. We will display your corporate logo in a prominent location in the final program, on slides between sessions and at other opportunities. Special recognition will also be given at keynote events. There are four suggested levels of financial support, ranging from $1,500 to $10,000. Supporters contributing $1,500 will receive one complimentary registration; supporters contributing $2,500 will receive two complimentary registrations; supporters contributing $5,000 will receive three complimentary registrations and supporters contributing $10,000 will receive four complimentary registrations.

As an EXHIBITOR you will be able to present your products and services in the GLXS-2014 Exhibit Hall, which will be located immediately adjacent to the presentation rooms in the Illini Union Conference Facility. Symposium attendees will have full, frequent access to the Exhibition Hall, which will be open continuously during all three days of the conference, including a special Exhibitor Reception. This Exhibit Hall will also be the location for all coffee breaks and will have excellent traffic throughout the symposium.

EXHIBITORS will be provided space for a 10' x 10' display booth (including a table, two chairs and electrical power). Exhibit space is available for $2,000 for each booth and includes one complimentary registration to the symposium. We are also offering a Supporter-Exhibitor Combination for $3,000 with the SUPPORTER and EXHIBITOR benefits noted above including two complimentary registrations.
