Exhibiting and Event Sponsorship

Gain Visibility. Build Relationships.

Sponsoring events provides visibility for your company leading up to and during conferences and workshops. Choose the event and the level that is the right fit for your company. Explore the events further on the NWAIS Professional Development Calendar.

Exhibiting at NWAIS events allows representatives of your company to build relationships with a targeted segment of potential existing clients. This year NWAIS will host an exhibitor reception at the 2017 Business Officers Conference.

The small scale of this event allows both exhibitors and participants to connect. This opportunity starts with each exhibitor briefly introducing themselves and their organization to a general session. A reception will follow with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. At the conclusion of the reception, exhibitors are invited to stay and connect with new and old business contacts over dinner.
We carefully choose which events will incorporate an exhibitor reception. For visibility during other events, please consider highlighting your organization through event sponsorship.


Special Note to Participants in the NWAIS Annual Corporate Sponsorship Program

A and B Level Corporate Sponsors receive a 50% and 25% discount respectively on keynote and event sponsorship as well as exhibiting, making this an incredible value. For more information about corporate sponsorship, contact Donald Stone.
