ESPA SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

2021 Virtual Annual Conference Sponsorships Available!

ESPA has opportunities to showcase your company either through our Annual Conference or other non-conference options.

Through sponsorship, your brand will be in front of leading event and convention service managers in the meetings industry — including forward-thinking CSMs from convention centers, convention & visitors bureaus and hotels.

Member CSMs make their own purchasing decisions and have influence on tens of thousands of meeting planners who hold events at their venues and destinations. The exposure is tremendous – and we can find the perfect partnership with your business to make the experience with ESPA truly successful.

Premier Partner – $3,250

Our Premier Partners will receive maximum visibility at our virtual conference.  You will receive an opportunity to present your company from the “main stage” – whether in the form of live remarks, with slides if desired, or by showing a video.  Customize your appearance!  You’ll be the star in front of our full virtual audience.

Additional Virtual Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

For these sponsorships, see the list of additional benefits at the bottom of this section.

Keynote or Industry Speaker Sponsor – $1,750, Breakout Session Sponsor – $1,000

Have your branding prominently displayed next to a session that you will be sponsoring! Showcase your support for the education being delivered to our members on a session of your choosing.  Session presentations will feature your logo as well as it being showcased on the Agenda of the ESPA web site.

Health + Wellness or Entertainment Activity Sponsor – $1,950

Sponsor will help to deliver a 15-or 20-minute activity to be featured during the main agenda.  This could be a yoga class, musical performance or other fun activity.  Let’s be creative!  The sponsor is asked to assist with coordination of activity if showcasing their own destination or venue is desired.  If the sponsor takes the lead and secures a class or entertainment at their cost or no cost, the fee can be revisited.  All ideas should be reviewed with ESPA staff.

We are all CSMs of the Year! Video – $1,750

This year to kick off the virtual Conference, we will be showcasing an opening video that showcases all of our fabulous members!   This is our way to show appreciation for the work they do especially in this challenging year.  Be the sponsor of this video and show that you believe in #ServicesStrong.  Your branding will be featured on the video.

Branded Waiting Room – $1,500

Sponsor can provide a video which will be featured during the waiting period prior to the start of the show on day one or day two.  This video may be shown along with other sponsor or ESPA videos during this waiting period.

For the above sponsorships, you also receive the following benefits:

  • One FREE Virtual Conference registration
  • Your logo prominently displayed on the Conference platform landing page
  • Logo on ESPA home page Partner Corner
  • Announcement with one paragraph description in an issue of event*ure, the official newsletter read by over 90% of ESPA membership
  • Sponsor will be featured in pre-Conference e-blasts to the ESPA membership

Attendee Gift or Swag – Custom fee

There are other fun ways that sponsors can participate such as sending registered Conference attendees a gift, an item to wear during happy hour, “a drink on you”, or a destination treat for them to eat during a coffee break!  If you are interested in doing a program like this, please contact Lynn at ESPA Headquarters to talk over ideas and details.
