ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES 

We invite you to consider sponsorship opportunities for the conference.  You can further promote your products in the following ways:

 SPONSORSHIPS (all include a FREE Exhibit Table):

●    Tote bags: Every attendee is given a tote bag.  Your logo would  be most visible during and after the conference if you choose this sponsorship. 

●    Pen and paper notebooks: Ohio TESOL always provides attendees with a high quality mini-notebook and pen with the Ohio TESOL logo imprinted.  Your company logo would be on this very popular bag stuffer should you choose to sponsor.

●    Drink Tickets for Networking Mixer: Your logo would be printed on a ticket entitling the bearer to one free drink at the cash bar.  What a great opportunity for you to show appreciation to loyal customers, and perhaps encourage new ones to come back for another chat. 

●    Keynote Speaker:  Your logo would be on stage throughout the keynote speaker address should you choose this sponsorship.   This is a great opportunity for high visibility with very little effort on your part.

●    Saturday Speaker:  Your logo would be on stage throughout the Saturday speaker address should you choose this sponsorship.   Another good opportunity for high visibility with very little effort on your part.

●    Conference Programs: Every attendee receives a high quality program to guide them.  Should you sponsor the programs, you would receive a full page ad for free and your logo would be placed somewhere on the cover.  Another high visibility opportunity with very little effort on your part. 

●     Friday Breakfast:  Ohio TESOL provides a continental breakfast to all attendees to greet them as they join us for our conference on Friday.  Your company would have signage at the event and announcements of appreciation made before the keynote speaker.

●    Saturday Breakfast:  Ohio TESOL provides a continental breakfast to all attendees to greet them as they join us for our conference on Saturday.  Your company would have signage at the event and announcements of appreciation made before the Saturday speaker.

●    Friday Luncheon:  Ohio TESOL provides a delicious luncheon and awards ceremony on Fridays for almost all attendees.  It is a great opportunity to be front and center during what many consider the highlight of the conference. 

ADVERTISING:

●      A variety of ad sizes are available for our program ads.  This low cost option will improve your visibility throughout the conference.

EXHIBITOR PRESENTATION SESSIONS:

●    Present at your very own session.  A small number of slots are reserved for exhibitor presentations, so get that proposal in early.

●    Sessions are 50 minutes in length.

●    Submission deadline is August 31, 2018.

●    Links to submit proposals will be sent ONLY upon payment of exhibitor table.  

 Again, optimal table locations will be given to those who sponsor.
