What does it mean to be a Sponsor of the 2017 PHIPA Connections Summit...

What does it mean to be a supporter of this Summit?  First and foremost this Summit is not a trade-show, in fact there are only 10 exhibit areas available, some of which are designated for Community Partners. Nor can supporters "buy" their way onto Agendas as this is a Community-Based event, and the Agenda is decided upon by an Agenda Advisory Committee that represents the community that attends. The integrity of the Agenda is one factor that makes this conference one of the best in the country!

Marketing folks may ask "what's in it for me then?"

  1. Call for Presentations - Vendors are encouraged to participate in the Call for Presentations process...many are accepted.
  2. Insight - as a Supporter, you get to attend all sessions and networking opportunities, therefore you get to participate in the discussion, ask questions, and possible contribute to the solutions.
  3. Optics - we will not segregate you, identify you with a fancy badge, or make a big fuss over your contribution to lunch. You are positioned as just one of the communty who understands the importance of the issues, and really just wants to meet people who live in a similar "space".
  4. Approachability - frequent supporters of our events do so because they have more people approach them who wish to engage in actual conversations...and not just for the free pen!
  5. Branding - all this to say, we will of course make people aware of your contribution in a tasteful unobtrusive manner.
