Sponsorship Opportunities

True to form, we will continue using a tiered approach for primary sponsorships. There will be one Title Sponsor, up to three Major Sponsors, and up to five Supporting Sponsors. The descriptions below display the ways your company will be promoted throughout the 2021 conference if you decide to be a primary event sponsor.

In response to your requests, we’ve added a few new sponsorship opportunities for you to consider. After you read through this year’s sponsorship options, feel free to contact Sam Edwards, director of member engagement, with questions.
