Sponsorship & Advertising Opportunities

Mobile Event App

The mobile app is back for National Seminar 2018.  Below are some opportunities for you to connect with attendees through the app.

  • appgraphicBanner Ads – Limited to 5 – banner ads will rotate across the top of each page of the app. When clicked or tapped, each ad can link to your choice of: Full-Screen Pop-up, event survey, your exhibit listing in the app, or an external web page.  COST $150
  • Map Sponsorship – Limited to 1 – This year’s app will include an interactive map of the entire event site, not just the exhibit booths as it has in the past. Attendees will be able to click from a session location listing to zoom in on the room location on the app venue map – even offering directions to the room.  With this new capability, we expect this to be one of the most visited features of the app. Map sponsorship includes your logo on the app and an enhanced presence highlighting you booth location throughout the event. COST $200
  • Enhanced Exhibitor Profile – Make your company profile standout in the app exhibitor list. Add your logo, social media links, ribbons, and other attachments to draw attention to your profile. In addition, you will have the ability to set up individual user profiles for your staff and sales reps and link them to your company profile in the exhibitor list. COST $100
  • Custom, Branded Survey or Live Poll – Enhance your showcase session with a live poll for participants showing real-time results. Or, create a branded survey to get attendee feedback about your company, products and services. COST $100 per Poll or Survey

There are several other ways to connect with attendees through the app.  If you are interested in learning more, contact executive director, Jenny Cauhorn, for more details.  We can create a custom package to fit your goals.

Concert or Reception Sponsorship

Add your company’s name as presenting sponsor of one of the concerts or receptions at the event.  As a presenting sponsor, your company will be recognized each time the event you sponsor is listed in the event program, event app, schedule, event website, and in Facebook posts and other marketing and advertising that mentions the event.  COST $500-$2000 (depending on sponsored event).  Contact executive director, Jenny Cauhorn, for more information.

Targeted Attendee E-Mail Blasts – $300

For the first time ever, we are offering companies the opportunity to reach event attendees through targeted, branded email messaging.  You create the message and provide the graphics and we’ll send on your behalf to all registered event attendees.  Send a personal invitation to your showcase.  Inform them of a new product or service you will be highlighting at the event.  Invite them to visit your booth for a special presentation.  The options are limitless!  We can even tell you who opened your email and clicked on included links so you can follow-up.
