Reach beyond your exhibit booth and bring your company to the attention of the Illinois library community. Becoming an Illinois Library Association Annual Conference sponsor represents an extraordinary opportunity to complement your company’s marketing plan.
Sponsorship is a high-impact, high-profile marketing technique, which drives influential professionals to your booth. Sponsorship creates awareness of your company's presence at the conference, builds your image, and generates traffic for your booth. With an exclusive investment, your company name will be synonymous with the event of your choosing. Multiple opportunities can be combined to give your company a higher level of benefits.
The Center for Exhibition Industry Research reports that 76% of trade show attendees leave home already having decided which booths they plan to visit, yet less than 20% of exhibitors conduct some form of pre-show promotion. Take advantage of the sponsorship opportunities that ILA offers to ensure you are on their must-visit list. If you want attendees to schedule time to visit your booth at the ILA Annual Conference, start planning today!
