The Vermont Tourism Summit draws one of the largest gatherings of tourism professionals in the state including owners, managers, and employees of the many businesses connected to this important segment of Vermont’s economy. Highlights of this year's Summit include a pre-conference FAM tour, the 4th Annual Vermont Bartender of the Year competition, an awards dinner co-hosted by the Vermont Tourism Summit and Vermont Chamber of Commerce, two days of workshops on pertinent industry topics, engaging panel discussions, a keynote address, an industry update from the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing, and lots of fun! Mark your calendar and plan to join us at the Equinox Resort in Manchester, Vermont, April 11-12, 2018. See you there.
New Levels, New Entitlements, New Opportunities!
Funds raised through sponsorships help to make the event affordable for attendees, and go directly toward conference related expenses. Your support is crucial to the success of the Vermont Tourism Summit – we could not do it without you! That is why we’ve made a special effort this year to kick things up a notch when it comes to value for your expenditure. We have new levels, new entitlements, and new opportunities for exposure! One noteworthy new entitlement included with standard levels of sponsorship is the option to host a special event or item. For example, at the B&B Sponsor level, you can choose to host a coffee break. The cost of the coffee will be covered by the Summit, but you can take some ownership of the event and increase your exposure by getting creative with your hosted event (link branded coffee mugs on the bar, and serving mimosas at your booth). We invite you to review the Sponsor Registration Brochure for details, and to select the level that’s right for you!
Make the investment! Below are some of the benefits of being a sponsor.
ACCESS: Reach the decision makers who need your products and services. Develop new business leads and contacts while building existing relationships.
EDUCATION: Attend sessions on a wide range of industry topics.
NETWORK: This is a great chance to meet, talk and expand your network of contacts to tourism professionals representing resorts, lodges, B & B’s, restaurants, trade associations, chambers of commerce, government agencies, attractions, and more!
EXHIBIT: All sponsors will receive a standard display space. Showcase your company and reinforce your brand awareness!
