This will be the 30th annual Spring Technical Conference, sponsored by the Wisconsin Midrange Computer Professional Association. The 3 day event is the largest in the Midwest and features more than 50 informative presentations on current topics to IBM i professionals. Average daily attendance ranges from 100 – 150 attendees. While other conferences suffered greatly in prior years, we still managed to attract well over 100 attendees. In many cases, different employees from the same company attend, providing coverage at all levels, from management to trainees.
New this year is the Sponsor Showcase with a 2 hour time slot on the schedule which will dramatically increase the access for attendees and sponsors. This time is set a side for the sponsors to entertain and meet with attendees, with no other distracting events to compete with. There will be free food and adult beverages served. The Showcase will provide a more relaxed environment to approach attendees and start a conversation.
An extra attendee registration is included with full sponsorship to be given away to a sponsor's customer. Sponsor's normally receive 2 registrations for themselves, and this third one is specifically for inviting a customer to our conference. It covers a complete attendance for all 3 days, sessions, labs, meals, the works.
A full sponsorship if cancelled 30 days prior to the event will be refunded in full less any expenses incurred. Full sponsorships cancelled between 30 and 10 days of the event will be refunded with a cancellation fee of 50% of the sponsorship. Full sponsorships cancelled within 10 days of the event will not be refunded. Other forms of sponsorship are not refundable.
We will include a reasonable amount of marketing information in our complimentary conference tote bag given to each attendee.
In an effort to raise awareness of sponsors by conference attendees, the WMCPA is planning a special entertainment event on Wednesday evening. Your company could sponsor a table at this event. This event is well attended and another opportunity to promote your product.
