In lieu of a physical exhibit hall, suppliers are encouraged to register for a sponsorship.  Sponsors will be welcome to all Convention activities and will have a great tool to gather leads and promote their products and services. 

We will be featuring, Poken®, a lead retrieval system and so much more.  Each attendee will have a small hand that attaches to their name badge.  You will “tap hands” with the Franchise Partner and user data will automatically transfer from one person to the other.  Your company information will be available to the attendee and you will receive contact information for the Franchise Partner.  This information will include when and where you met, how many times you interacted, and other valuable data that you can take back to your company’s management to provide beneficial information post-show.

Prior to leaving for convention, Franchise Partners will receive a “goodie box” containing a plethora of information and samples from the sponsors to entice them to meet in Mexico.  Click here for a PDF explaining the details of each sponsorship level.  Each of the sponsorship rates includes at least one five-night hotel package at the resort.  Please contact Deb Newton with questions.

Bronze - $6,500
Silver - $10,000
Gold - $15,000
Platinum - $30,000


The Convention will be chock full of prizes.  To encourage networking with the sponsors at the resort, all Franchise Partners will be eligible to win up to $25,000 in cash and prizes during the daily raffles!
