Obligation: $2,500 (or more)
This year just one sponsor will be able to sponsor the workshop at the platinum level. This sponsor will receive some unique benefits.
First, you can send us a banner which will hang in a prominent place at the by the registration table. Second, we will use your company logo as a screen saver on the projector during lunch.
There are two rooms being used by the workshop.
The larger room hosts the track while the smaller room hosts the advanced track. When you sponsor a room it will be named after your organization. Attendees will ask one another, "Are you going to the ACME Corp Room?"
Food and drinks will be provided throughout the day. On-site meals and refreshments reduce distractions for attendees during the conference and increase networking opportunities between them. When you sponsor food, attendees will say to one another, "ACME Corp provided this coffee. That's hot!"
The s expenses are not limited to facilities and food. We greatly appreciate any contribution that benefits our attendees by allowing us to create a wonderful conference atmosphere.
