2018 Annual Membership Meeting Sponsorships


Publishers, distributors and other vendors interested in working with the industry's most progressive retailers are invited to attend the Annual Meeting as official sponsors. There are four sponsorship levels: Showcase, Roundtable, Premier, and Platinum.
 
-----------------
 
Showcase Sponsorships are designed for vendors that want to set up stationary displays for our retailers or vendors.   I.e. they want to "showcase" their product.   They are also designed for vendors who are coming to interact with retailers and attend workshops/other programming but do not want to set up a display or host a roundtable.
 
 Showcase Sponsorships come with an invitation to:
  • Set up at a six foot table in the foyer of the conference.  (Retailers will spend time at Showcase sponsor tables during programming breaks).
  • NOT participate in the Roundtable Process.
  • If time permits, have a 1 minute shout out to attendees at one of the meals.
  • send one representative to attend all open meetings
  • participate in all retailer/vendor panels that apply to your business
  • attend sponsored meals
  • submit a 1/2 page ad in the meeting program guide
  • add your company logo to our Sponsorship web page
  • add your company to our meeting press releases and promotional materials
  • interact with many of the industry's best retailers and other vendors during meetings, meals, and other social events
Showcase Sponsorships are $650.  The registration fee for additional attendees is $300 per extra attendee.     
 
-----------------
 
Roundtable Sponsorships are designed for those vendors that want formal small group interaction with our retailers.    Through the roundtable process, the vendor remains stationary while small retailer groups circulate amongst the vendors.  Vendors usually choose the topic of discussion for the roundtables;  we encourage vendors to discuss future projects, show off new product, and generate new business.  This year we will have a maximum of 32 Roundtable Sponsorships.  Roundtable Sponsorships come with an invitation to: 
  • participate in retailer/vendor round-tables
  • NOT have speaking time in front of the entire group.  
  • send one representative to attend all open meetings
  • participate in all retailer/vendor panels that apply to your business
  • attend sponsored meals
  • add your company logo to our Sponsorship web page
  • add your company to our meeting press releases and promotional materials
  • interact with many of the industry's best retailers and other vendors during meetings, meals, and other social events
Roundtable Sponsorships are $1000. The registration fee for additional attendees is $300 per extra attendee.  There is a $150 fee to submit a 1/2 page ad for the program and $200 fee to submit a full page ad for the program.
 
-----------------

Premier Sponsorships
come with time for vendors to make presentations to the entire group.  Some presentations are during meals and some are not.  The cost of sponsorship depends on the specific time slot occupied and how long the presentation is.   Premier Sponsorships come with an invitation to:
  • make a presentation to the entire group (8-16 minutes).
  • participate in retailer/vendor roundtables
  • send one representative to attend all open meetings
  • participate in all retailer/vendor panels that apply to your business
  • attend other sponsored meals
  • display a full page ad in the meeting program guide
  • add your company logo to our Sponsorship web page
  • add your company to our meeting press releases and promotional materials
  • interact with many of the industry's best retailers and other vendors during meetings, meals, and other social events

Premier Sponsorships with 8 minute presentations are $2000.   Premier Sponsorships with 12 minute presentations are $2500. Premier Sponsorships with 16 minute presentations are $3000.   The registration fee for additional attendees from a Premier Sponsorship company are $300 per extra attendee.     Note:  Vendors MUST be mindful of their speaking time.   Vendors who stray over their allotted speaking time will be charged extra.

 
-----------------

Platinum Sponsorships are for those companies that would like exclusive time with our members - i.e. just that specific company and our retailers.   These sponsorships start at $8,500 for 1 hour.   This is the higher level of sponsorship and comes with the benefits of the other three sponsorship levels.
