Beyond the Booth

A La Carte Opportunities

Tapping into opportunities beyond the booth provides sponsors and exhibitors with even more avenues for visibility. Put your company center stage with opportunities such as sponsoring the conference carry bag, hosting the conference WiFi or connecting with attendees in a unique and personal way via the 2019 Disaster Planning Conference app!

Act quickly — the following opportunities are limited:

One rotating banner ad to run indefinitely upon launch of 
conference app

Place your message in front of the entire app audience. A banner ad is a messaged pinned to the top of the activity feed, the most highly accessed section of the app.


Two push notifications in conference app

This is a powerful real-time marketing tool, offering a direct 160-character message encouraging attendees to visit your booth or view your products.


Charging station with logo

Charge it! Batteries need charging and every attendee has a battery reliant device…some have more than one. Let your company be the hero that supplies the needed charge!


Conference bag

Sponsor the conference bag given to attendees upon check-in, providing continued exposure even after the event. Decide quickly — this option is only available to one company.


Recharge lounge

A place for attendees to relax and recharge between sessions, providing a more comfortable networking environment.


Conference WiFi

Includes logo acknowledgment from the main stage via presentation slides, signage and on the conference app.
