Symposium 2019: Making it Matter

Thank you to all the Sponsors and Exhibitors who joined us this year, May 1 at The Fairmont Château Whistler.  This year's Tradeshow included 52 vendors (10 new to Symposium!), and 2 new sponsor categories.

For the first time ever, sponsors and exhibitors were invited to participate in a social lunch with delegates, as well as participate in afternoon sessions.

Delegates included purchasing influencers and decision-makers at all-levels, including programmers, managers, directors and elected officials interested in increasing their knowledge and value in their organizations and communities.

We look forward to seeing you at the next conference!

Exhibitor Opportunities

This year's Exhibitor engagement opportunities included:

  • Personal face-to-face time with Delegates during the May 1 Lunch and Recreation Activities
  • Education experience with Delegates during the afternoon sessions. Exhibitors were invited to attend the May 1 afternoon sessions to get a taste of the Delegate experience and to learn more about the hot topics and issues that are driving the Delegates' work.
  • A dedicated afternoon Tradeshow Break for Delegates to stretch, grab refreshments and play games, and Exhibitors to show off their displays and make connections.
  • An evening Tradeshow party with complimentary refreshments where the spotlight will be solely on the Exhibitors!

Sponsorship Opportunities

Six standard sponsorship packages, and customizable sponsorship packages offered benefits such as access to the entire conference, including social activities, company logo on marketing materials, and opportunities to introduce speakers and/or to moderate discussions.
