FRI will help you meet the customers you need to grow your business. Conference sponsorships are powerful opportunities to expand your reach, enhance your presence and achieve marketing goals.
To align with your sales and marketing needs, FRI sponsorship offerings are organized into 3 distinct categories:
- Networking Events
- Education Events
- Registration/Conference Amenities
As an added benefit, FRI conference sponsorship automatically enrolls you in our Corporate Partner Bugle Program, providing benefits all year long. Contact Courtney Bulger at 703-537-4805 or email@example.com for details.
Conference networking events give you face-to-face time with your target market and the opportunity to meet with decision makers in a relaxed setting. Events range from small, intimate gatherings to large parties for all attendees. Your company name and logo will appear on sponsorship recognition signage at the event and for the duration of the conference, in marketing materials and you will have the opportunity to provide reception accessories.
Education at IAFC conferences reflects and influences the state of the nation's fire service. Attendees have come to expect the high-caliber conference programs that FRI is known to provide. By sponsoring an educational program, you will reinforce your company as a resource for new ideas and solutions. You will be invited to attend the session and distribute materials from a tabletop exhibit at the entrance.
Put your company name front and center. Registration/Conference Amenity sponsorships include the services that will enhance the overall conference experience for attendees and give your company name maximum exposure. Amenities such as lanyards and banners will ensure high-visibility for your company name and logo.
Each FRI 2012 sponsorship includes these general sponsorship benefits:
- Added Priority Points for FRI 2013 space selection: One point per $1,000 of sponsorship
- Complimentary pre- and post-show attendee mailing list
- Company logo on sponsor recognition signage at the Georgia World Congress Center for the duration of FRI 2012
