Why should I sponsor?

The conference attendees are comprised of women business owners, corporate executives and purchasing decision-makers, as well as representatives from government agencies and advocacy organizations.

I am a sponsor contact, what do I need to know?

As a Sponsor Contact there are a few things you should know:

  • As a Sponsor Contact you are responsible for registering your corporation for the event. You’ll receive directions from Mia Delano with a code to access your company’s registration. You will first register yourself as the Sponsor Contact and fill out your company’s Exhibitor Directory information.
  • The Sponsor Contact will then need to register each of the individuals using your Full-Conference Registrations and Wednesday Day Passes. You will need each individual’s full name, company name, and email address as well as demographic information. Please note, if you, the sponsor contact, will also be attending the conference you must register yourself for one of the Registrations or Day Passes.  
  • If you need to make any changes to the registrations you already completed you can log back in to make the adjustment any time before June 14.
