  • Advertising is not the only source of non-dues revenue when it comes to your show daily. Create sponsorships that provide exhibitors what they are looking for: visibility!
    • Charge an exhibitor anywhere from $5,000 to $8,000 to cover the costs of hiring distribution temps who wear t-shirts with the conference logo on the front and an exhibitor’s logo/message on the back. The temps get noticed, the sponsor stands out and it didn’t cost your organization anything!
