Session Description:

In today’s competitive sales environment, event producers need to go beyond tickets, signage and other standard sponsorship inventory to meet the needs of potential partners.  As an event producer, how do you add value to your sponsorship offers? What do you need to do to capture the interest of potential partners?

What this Webinar will teach you: 10 field-tested ways to enhance the value of your sponsorship offer and gain a point of differentiation from other sponsorship sellers.

Topics include:
Repositioning your property as a more salable opportunity
Carving out new sponsorship platforms from existing inventory
Using social media and other inventory to offer additional off-site reach
Creating proprietary programs that sponsors can “own”
