Higher Profile Opportunities!

In addition to your sponsorship package, you may also choose to sponsor a specific conference activity or event in order to gain extra exposure for your brand, product, or new initiative. In order to be eligible, your company or organization must be an overall conference sponsor at the minimum level of Advertiser. These special sponsorship opportunities are on a first come, first served basis, and they may be woven into your overall sponsorship package.

Your company or organization will be listed as the sponsor of the activity/event in the electronic Guidebook and on special signage at the event. For certain large events held in the general session room, signage on the screens is also a possibility.

When sponsoring a particular activity at the Annual Conference, a sponsor may elect to distribute a marketing item at that event.  This might include a specialty item or a printed flyer. All items must be approved in advance by the Conference Committee.

Your representative will be allowed up to three minutes to address the attendees at that event.  If the event is held in a space where audio-visual equipment is already present, you may elect to use that time to show a video or other visual presentation as part of your three minutes. You may elect to have a special table inside the event/activity to showcase your company or organization.

Events carry different levels of prestige, so they are priced accordingly.

Sponsors who commit to these special opportunities will be listed below as they commit. If you see "OPEN" on one of the opportunities below, please send an email to sponsorship@ngla.org.

Silent Auction 


A very easy way to increase your visibility at the conference is to donate an item to the Silent Auction.  You can donate an item of any value, although items in value of $100 or more definitely get the most attention.  The item can be something directly related to your product (a free educational program, a 1-hour Skype session, books, or a free registration to your next event), or it can be something completely unrelated (gift cards, electronic items, vacation related items, fashion accessories, or even that weird wedding gift that's been sitting around). 

Either way, we make sure to note your donation alongside the item on the auction table, and you support the educational mission of NGLA.
