Sponsor Tips for Maximum Success

Exhibitor Tables

  • Be ready to network at the same time the breakfast is ready (30-60 minutes before the start of the event)
  • Be present during breakfast, morning and afternoon breaks, lunches, and receptions if scheduled
  • It is recommended to have some kind of promotional item to give away in a drawing. This will allow you to collect business cards. Have informational collateral to distribute.
  • Bring your business cards and collect business cards for new leads

Webcast Event Sponsorship

Sponsorship is a powerful way to feature your brand, attract clients and build market share. In today’s tough economic environment, it is even more important to keep your brand at the forefront with potential buyers and existing clients.

No time or budget to send a booth and sales reps to one of our events?

Still want to get your product or service in front of a live audience?

Sponsor the conference webcast and receive these benefits:

  • Verbal acknowledgment and thank you at the onsite (live) conference, in addition to the webcast.
  • Your company contact information will appear as part of the 8-12 slide deck, four times during the event—prior to the start, mid-morning break, lunch break and mid-afternoon break.
  • Your company contact information will appear in the event manual provided to attendees and all links in the e-materials are clickable.

ALL THIS FOR ONLY $1,000 PER DAY, PER EVENT.
