The North American Invitational Model United Nations (NAIMUN) is the largest high school Model United Nations conference in the Western Hemisphere, drawing more than 3,300 high school delegates and 350 faculty advisors from countries across the globe. Currently in its 54th year, NAIMUN has established itself as one of the premier conferences on the high-school Model UN circuit, boasting notable speakers such as former CIA lawyers, high-ranking ambassadors, and even Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations. This year, the conference will be held February 16-19, 2017 at the Washington Hilton. The conference is presented by the Georgetown International Relations Association, Inc., a 501©(3) non-profit organization run entirely by students of Georgetown University.

Sponsors at NAIMUN LIII Last year we were able to continue our work with many of our previous sponsors, such as Brown University Pre-College Programs, Yale Young Global Scholars, and Best Delegate. We hope to continue partnerships with these organizations and to extend our sponsorship in the coming months as planning for NAIMUN LIV accelerates. NAIMUN and BestDelegate.com Starting at NAIMUN XLIX, BestDelegate.com featured a series of insider articles on the conference, and we are proud to continue this collaboration. NAIMUN LIII once again gave an inside view of the conference with articles featured on Best Delegate, and Best Delegate live updates from the conference, which we hope to continue at NAIMUN LIV.
Why Sponsor NAIMUN?
NAIMUN seeks corporate partnerships in order to expand the NAIMUNAid financial aid program, which supports dedicated students who would otherwise not have the financial means to attend our conference. Corporate sponsorships are also used to enhance the experience for all participants, by providing supplemental out-of-committee exposure to international relations and the professional world. NAIMUN plans, with the generous support of its sponsors, to expand its philanthropic goals while simultaneously helping you increase your consumer base. Businesses in the D.C. area, along with companies that seek driven and successful high school and college students will easily find their target audience at NAIMUN LIV. The diverse, highly qualified, and dedicated attendees provide sponsors with a unique platform to promote a brand or product. NAIMUN delegates spend an entire weekend together talking not only about international issues, but also about their lives. Where else can a sponsor find such an attentive, captive audience?
