All New Event Format! U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day 2023 Sponsorship Opportunities Now Available


The U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day (WSD) Planning Committee is pleased to announce exciting changes to its sponsorship opportunities for the 2023 celebration of World Standards Day in Washington, DC—with a brand-new event format designed for greater attendee networking!

A joint effort between the private and public sectors, the U.S. Celebration of WSD is an annual event recognizing the critical role of various stakeholders across the standards community, including business leaders, industry, academia, and government. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) serve as co-chairs of the U.S. Celebration of WSD Committee. ASTM International is serving as the 2023 administrating organization.

The 2023 U.S. WSD celebration highlighting the theme, Shared Vision for a Better World, will take place on Thursday, October 12, at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. With a focus on offering attendees an extended opportunity for networking and lively interaction, a lengthened reception will replace the previous years’ seated dinner. As the evening’s highlight, Hall of Fame astronaut Michael López-Alegría will be honored as the recipient of the Ronald Brown Standards Leadership Award. The winner of the WSD Paper Competition will also be announced.

New Sponsorship Offerings for WSD 2023!

Brand new sponsor offerings provide an opportunity to support the U.S. Celebration of WSD at a variety of levels, including benefits such as:

  • enhanced exhibit displays;
  • digital ads (available for sponsors and individuals); and
  • first-of-its-kind custom sponsorships, including signature cocktails, musician, or photobooth sponsorships.

WSD 2023 Theme: Shared Vision for a Better World

In today’s global, interconnected world, collaboration furthers our shared goals. The standardization system has the greatest impact when all stakeholders work together—from the public and private sector; to national and international representatives; to consumers, industry, governments, academia, and non-governmental organizations. United, we can achieve more through standardization, developing solutions to the complex global challenges of sustainability, safety, security and climate change…and leaving a better, more resilient, and more equitable world for the next generation.
