Global Conference: Sponsors & Exhibitors Long-term Recognition

Long-term Sponsor Recognition

This recognition is for companies who have purchased any Sponsorship Package for the Global Conference for 5 – 9 years (Silver Star Sponsor) or 10 or more years (Gold Star Sponsor). The sponsorship purchases do not have to be consecutive. Sponsors receive the following at the Global Conference:
 
  • Photos of all 10-year and 5-year sponsors will be taken at a designated time during the conference (one photo for all 10-year sponsors, and one photo for all 5-year sponsors). The photo will be promoted in the photo slide show at the gala (if used), as well as in the presentation that is shown in the general session rooms. Work with the Executive Director to schedule the time for the picture with the conference photographer.
  • The sponsors will be recognized during one of the conference general sessions (typically during the business meeting – check with the Executive Director to confirm the best time).  
  • A sign will be placed on the Sponsor’s table in the Exhibit Hall (if they have a table), recognizing them as a Silver Star Sponsor for 5+ years, or a Gold Star Sponsor for 10+ years.
  • Sponsors will be given a pin to attach to their nametags indicating their 5 or 10-year sponsor designation. Pins will be given out at Registration to individuals from each company who have not received one in the past. Extra pins will be kept in the back of the Registration area in case someone who has received one in the past asks for another one. Work with the Administrative Assistant to make sure there are enough pins available. 
  • When a sponsor first becomes a Silver Star or a Gold Star Sponsor, an introductory email will be sent by the President to welcome them to the program. Each year after that, the Sponsor & Exhibitor Committee Chair(s) will send an email to each company to remind them about the program, the recognition that will be provided, and notify them of when the photo will be taken. The Executive Director will develop templates for the communications.
