Selected sponsors receive a speaking opportunity, a 6 foot draped exhibit table, electricity, WiFi, breakfast and lunch for two sponsorship representatives. Be sure to reserve early to avoid a wait list situation.

I pretty much stopped doing these types of events because of poor attendee quality and volume but this totally changed my mind. I'm going to send out an internal email to my peers recommending they do your events."   - Barracuda Networks, Tim Solomon, Commercial Accounts Manager

Sponsorship Levels, Pricing and Signup.

Go to the Pricing/Signup page. Here is our W9 if needed for tax purposes.


Our live events are structured for maximum efficiency from both a presenter and attendee standpoint. We feature non-competitive companies that are best of breed in their domain. Our Delegates, free from hearing competing sales pitches from multiple vendors, can instead focus on whether the speaker's solutions fit with their organizational/technical needs. We handle every event-related logistical issue, making it very easy for our partners to simply show up at 9:30 am and have their display table set up before attendees arrive at 9:40. In addition to lunch, there is a 45 minute break, allowing every single attendee plenty of time to meet with every single vendor of interest.

This is a horizontal event, drawing individuals who work across all industries within a region - retailing, manufacturing, professional services, finance/insurance, transportation/logistics, healthcare, universities, and government - who can directly buy (and/or influence the purchase of) products and complementary services provided by sponsors/speakers. Bizsummits drives attendance through highly focused email campaigns and
