CONFERENCE SPONSORSHIP PACKAGES:
PLATINUM ($2500): Elite sponsors are recognized for their extraordinary support of the APA Colorado annual conference and the planning profession in Colorado. At the annual conference, they receive all the benefits of both sponsors and exhibitors and get top billing and the best visibility on all promotional materials, including location, font size, ad space, exhibit space, frequency of mention and display. Elite sponsors receive three complementary registrations, can make a brief presentation during a conference meal and are recognized and named individually at the opening and closing sessions. Throughout the year, Elite sponsors continue to be highlighted on our web page, in the newsletter and are listed in the searchable consultant directory. A maximum of three Elite sponsorships are available per year, ensuring that these firms stand out and get noticed!
GOLD ($1250): Gold sponsors are major supporters of the Chapter who contribute to general support for APA Colorado and its annual conference. Gold sponsors receive two complementary registrations and are highlighted in the conference program and other conference promotional materials with premium positioning and more individual mentions. They also receive year-round recognition on the Chapter’s website. Gold-level sponsors are invited to tailor the package of benefits to best suit their needs.
RECEPTION ($1000): Reception sponsors underwrite the cost of a conference social event for a minimum of $1000. There is only one sponsor per reception, ensuring maximum exposure. Reception sponsors may choose to enhance a reception by providing benefits that the Chapter is not normally able to support, such as drink tickets, entertainment, food upgrades, or door prizes. Unique benefits to the Reception sponsors include a tailored program description, exclusive signage at the reception and a brief welcome and introduction at the beginning of the event. Reception sponsorship opportunities include the opening night reception, the awards reception, and the closing social reception.
SILVER ($750): Silver sponsors are core supporters of the Chapter and planning profession, and the Silver level is our best value sponsor package. Silver sponsors receive a complementary conference registration, logo screen display during general sessions and in the printed program, newsletter advertisement, as well as year-round recognition on the Chapter’s website. Silver sponsorship is ideal for firms that will be sending at least one attendee to the conference and wish to take advantage of added sponsorship benefits.
BREAK ($500): Break sponsors support a networking break during the annual conference, underwriting the cost of refreshments. There is only one sponsor per break, which allows an opportunity to greet and engage attendees one-on-one along with a platform to display company information and marketing materials. The Break sponsor is recognized in the program description of the break as well as exclusive signage at the break.
E-SPONSOR ($500): This package emphasizes year-round recognition through electronic media, with targeted exposure at the APA Colorado Annual Conference. E-Sponsors are included in the scrolling web banner shown on every APA Colorado webpage and the “our sponsors” web page with hyperlinks to the sponsor’s own webpage. Consulting E-sponsors are also included in the searchable online consultant directory. All E-sponsors will also receive thanks and screen displays at the annual conference and sponsor badge ribbons for attendees.
EXHIBITOR ($500): Exhibitors get a table, or may provide their own booth, in our exhibitor hall where they can directly greet and engage interested conference attendees. Each Exhibitor custom tailors their quarter-sheet advertisement in the Exhibitor Guide portion of the conference program. Other Exhibitor benefits include a badge ribbon for all attending representatives of the firm and a list of attendee names and affiliations.
