Become a Sponsor

Gain access | Earn recognition | Maximize exposure


FIND THE AUDIENCE AND EVENTS THAT BEST FIT YOUR BUSINESS

MEA member companies and non-member companies are welcome to participate in Event Sponsorships. We know you need exposure at events that align with your business, attract the right audience, or open a new market for you. Our Event Sponsorships allow your company to pick and choose from any of the event sponsorship options to reach specific audiences during the events at which you want to be affiliated and recognized. You can sponsor as few as one function at a summit or multiple items at multiple events. Create the combination that best fits your company’s event sponsorship objectives.

Enroll by Friday, February 26, 2021 to get all possible exposure! Check the availability of limited items in the sponsorship form.
