Additional Self-Direction Conference Sponsorship Opportunities
Host Professional Headshots ($6,000): Who doesn’t need a new headshot? This fun and memorable sponsorship opportunity offers free headshots for all conference attendees. Attendees love this opportunity because many people are stuck using old photos and never make time to have professional photos taken. This sponsorship includes a table next to the photograph booth for you to interact with attendees as they wait to take their headshot. You can display your logo and any promotional materials you would like on the table. Leading up to the conference, attendees will receive targeted emails advertising this great opportunity sponsored by your organization. In addition, your sponsorship will be highlighted in conference materials including the screen projection loop, our website, and conference emails. The sponsorship also includes a two-day exhibit booth and you’ll receive a spreadsheet of conference attendees and contact information.
Hotel Key Cards ($5,000): Be the first thing attendees see as they check-in for the Self-Direction Conference at the Hyatt Regency! Your logo will be printed on each attendee’s key card. Did you know that attendees actively look at their key card 8 to 12 times a day during conferences? This represents repeat impressions to your targeted audience. This sponsorship also includes a two-day exhibit booth. (Key card branding is proven to drive up to twice as much traffic to your exhibit booth!) In addition, your sponsorship will be highlighted in all conference materials including the screen projection loop before and after sessions, our website, and conference emails. You will also receive a spreadsheet of conference attendees and contact information.
Sponsor a Program Administrator Scholarship ($2,500): Often self direction program administrators who work for a Medicaid agency, State Unit on Aging, or Aging and Disability Resource Center want to attend the conference, but cannot for financial reasons. The Self-Direction Conference will offer scholarships to which program administrators can apply. Scholarship awardees will attend the conference, with their airfare, hotel, and conference registration covered by the scholarship. Sponsors will be honored at our Self-Direction Awards Reception. All scholarship sponsors will be introduced to all scholarship award winners at the Networking and Awards Reception. Sponsors will not be matched with individual scholarship winners to avoid conflict of interest between states and possible or existing vendors.
Exhibit Booth ($700): The Self-Direction Conference exhibits provide a dynamic environment where attendees network and learn about the latest products and resources that support self-direction. Conference attendees look forward to learning from industry experts about the latest news, resources, and technologies. Take advantage of this opportunity to reach a concentrated group of decision makers by reserving an exhibit booth at the 2019 Self-Direction Conference. The exhibit schedule provides almost 20 hours of networking time, including several key functions (meals, reception, and the Self-Direction Awards ceremony). Exhibit booths are placed in high traffic areas requiring attendees to pass through on their way to sessions and other conference events. The booths will be available on a first-come-first served basis starting on Monday morning.
Friend of Self-Direction ($500): Increase your organization’s exposure during the conference by becoming a Friend of Self-Direction sponsor. These sponsorships are often used to help self-directing participants and family members travel to and attend the conference. This sponsorship includes a special sponsor name badge for attendee(s) representing your organization and acknowledgment in conference materials, our website, and conference emails.
Sponsor a Participant ($399): Your sponsorship will cover meals and provide a stipend for travel for a participant or family member to attend the two-day conference. Applied Self-Direction will waive the conference registration fee for participants and family members receiving the sponsorship. Sponsors will be recognized on their conference name badges and acknowledged on the conference website and materials. The cost of the sponsorship is $399.
