Sponsor & Advertise
Sponsorship table selection is based on a first-come, first-serve basis. Sponsors are expected to bring a tablecloth, as most everyone has a logo cloth they prefer to use. Sponsoring companies are invited to have two representatives stationed at their table on the day they are providing sponsorship. Sponsors are not required to be present the entire day, but PTAG is offering that opportunity for you. We want your experience to be successful. PTAG will provide lunch for two representatives from your firm. Download the PTAG Sponsorship Participation Guidelines for additional details.
Don't forget, this is not an exhibit, so pop-up displays, banners, etc., are not permitted. The agreement is to offer sponsors a table for their literature and business cards. List and label offers that are a part of the sponsorship will be distributed to sponsors after the conference when the coupon is submitted. Give-a-ways are permitted, so you may have a bowl/basket to collect business cards.
All Cancellations must be submitted in writing. A $50.00 cancellation fee will be charged for any cancellation received after September 30, 2013.
Please contact the firstname.lastname@example.org PTAG Executive Office if you have additional questions.
