Sponsorship Opportunities




Keynote Speaker Sponsor: Sponsor a speaker's traveling expenses and accommodation during the event and receive logo placement in the conference on-site program next to the speaker's listing and signage for staging next to the speaker. Leverage the expertise of a keynote speaker to connect with your audience.


Attendee Beverage Break: Give the attendees a chance to relax with a service provided only by you. Signage and promotion in the on-site directory gives you the extra credit.

$2,000 per day 

Attendee Tours - all transportation: For one low price, your company will be the primary source for appreciation, allowing us all to learn more off-site.


Attendee Badge Lanyards: Take advantage of this opportunity to reinforce your brand in the minds of conference attendees. Your company logo will be printed on the name badge lanyard each attendee will receive upon registering. THANK YOU! 


Attendee Conference Bags: All conference attendees will receive a conference bag at registration. Take advantage of this exclusive chance to brand a high-valued, highly visible item utilized by every attendee. Attendees will be thrilled that you provided an easy, take-home bag for them.


Attendee Conference Pad & Pen: With so many sessions for note taking, every attendee will be thankful to have one place to keep it all organized. Attendees will see your company logo every time they take a note or file information away. After the show, it will be an item they will continue to use reminding them to give you a call.




Exhibit Hall Welcome Sign: Freestanding foam-core signs are an effective, affordable way to communicate with attendees. The 38" x 87" foam-core sign is an excellent way to promote brand awareness of your booth prior to entering the Exhibit Hall area.

(limited to 6) 

Attendee Networking Reception: After a long day at sessions and visiting exhibits, give the attendee a cool drink with a wonderful assortment of hors d’oeuvres and you’ll be the hit of the party! Signage and on-site credit included.


Attendee Branded Reusable Water Bottles: Secure a brand reminder every time attendees take a sip. Don't forget your booth number. Attendees will thank you.

$2,500 per 1,000 bottles 

Conference Session Proceedings CD: After the show, when everyone’s packed up and gone, attendees will be contacting us to get the Conference Proceedings. Your company name and contact info will appear on the CD cover when we send it out!

Attendee Hotel Room Keys (two-color): How often do you get a chance to sponsor something that attendees hold onto throughout the conference? Your company logo and booth number will appear on each attendee's key card. 


Attendee Tuesday or Wednesday Lunch: Take this exclusive networking and sales opportunity to bring focus to your exhibit booth and company. Your company will have name and logo recognition on 'Thank You' signage throughout the exhibit hall and will have the opportunity to supply guests with a promotional item or handout upon entry to the hall - a perfect way to promote a raffle or giveaway in your booth!
