Best New Sponsorship Ideas 
Live Webcast on Wed, May 15, 2019 2:01 PM EDT



Sponsorships have come a long way from the days of hosting sessions or speakers. Professional clinics, exclusive meet-and-greets and even puppy-cuddling stations are among the new ways sponsors are getting their names and brands out to potential customers. In this session, sponsorship pros will share some of the best new ideas, as well as tips for showing sponsors your appreciation.

Moderator: Lisa Grimaldi, Editor, Destinations, Northstar Meetings Group
