Join us April 7–9, for the Council on Foundations 2013 Annual Conference in Chicago. As the Council’s largest convening of leaders, the Annual Conference attracts a wide range of foundation decision-makers—from trustees to CEOs to program staff. Don’t miss this opportunity to showcase your company, your mission, and your ideas to the entire philanthropic sector.
As your marketing partner, we can provide you with visibility and a platform to make face-to-face connections with foundation decision-makers and distinguish your company and its products or services.
Contact Laura Larson at 703-879-0705 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We have secured high-visibility exhibit space in the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Chicago to help generate more traffic for our industry partners and to better integrate Resource Central into the entire event. However, with this arrangement exhibit space is extremely limited. We will sell out.
Exhibitor and Sponsor registration.
Space applications due by February 27, 2013. Exhibit space will be assigned beginning February 27 and will be assigned based on exhibit level and date application received.

PLATINUM EXHIBITOR PACKAGE: $11,000
DIAMOND EXHIBITOR PACKAGE: $7,250
PREMIER EXHIBITOR PACKAGE: $5,250
SUPPORTING EXHIBITOR PACKAGE: $3,200
Looking for maximum exposure? Become a conference sponsor as a way to increase your ROI. Each sponsorship includes one full-conference registration plus a 10 percent discount on additional registrations, a complimentary preregistration mailing list for one-time use, and display of your logo on the conference website and app.
TOTE BAGS: $8,000
($7,000 IF COMBINED WITH ANY EXHIBITOR PACKAGE)
Show your support for the conference—and the environment—by sponsoring recyclable tote bags for all attendees. Proudly display your company name and logo and include a promotional item of your choice.
RELAXATION STATION: $5,000
($4,500 IF COMBINED WITH ANY EXHIBITOR PACKAGE)
Give the gift of a seated back massage at the Relaxation Station in Resource Central. Outfit the massage staff with your branded polo shirts, hats, or buttons. Your name and logo on signs around the station will attract visitors. This offering has been wildly successful at other Council conferences.
SPONSORED BREAKS: $5,000
($3,500 IF COMBINED WITH ANY EXHIBITOR PACKAGE)
Networking and social events in Resource Central expose attendees to your company as they mingle over food and drinks. Two after-lunch dessert receptions and a happy hour provide opportunities to welcome attendees and display promotional materials (for non-exhibiting companies). Signs at entrances and food and beverage stations add to the sponsorship impact.
CYBER CAFÉ: $3,500
($3,000 IF COMBINED WITH AN EXHIBITOR PACKAGE)
Support the Cyber Café in Resource Central and provide Internet and printing services for attendees. Your company name and logo will appear as wallpaper on each computer with a link to the website of your choice. Signs at the Cyber Café will also feature your company’s name and logo.
SPONSORED SESSIONS: $2,500
($1,500 IF COMBINED WITH ANY EXHIBITOR PACKAGE)
Sponsor a concurrent session for an opportunity to connect your company, brand, or image to a specific issue. The session moderator will acknowledge your sponsorship, and a display of promotional materials and signs with your company’s name and logo will be located near the session room.
TOTE BAG INSERT: $2,500
($2,000 if combined with any exhibitor package)
Include a branded item in the tote bags all attendees receive as they check in. The sponsoring company is responsible for supplying the item and shipping to Chicago by late March.
Looking for even greater impact? Several high-profile sponsorship options are available, including plenary sessions and networking events. We can also create a customized package. Contact Laura Larson at 703-879-0705 or email@example.com for more information!
