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, welcome mixer train ride, 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 DoubleTree by Hilton Burlington Hotel (formerly the Sheraton Burlington Hotel) in South Burlington, Vermont, April 4 & 5, 2019. See you there.
Key Reasons to Sponsor
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!
New Levels, New Entitlements, New Opportunities for Exposure!
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 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. Check out the TAKE YOUR SPONSORSHIP TO THE NEXT LEVEL section of the sponsor brochure for some ideas on how. We invite you to review the entitlement grid in the brochure to learn more about opportunities to get involved, and to select the sponsorship level that’s right for you.
