APH 2014 Annual Conference:  Believe It . . . Achieve It!

What Are the Options and Benefits of Sponsorship?

In addition to receiving tangible benefits for various levels of sponsorship, our sponsors will enjoy intangible rewards. These "soft" benefits include, but are not limited to: invaluable face time and relationship-building with our attendees; increased familiarity with other complementary services and products used by personal historians; and the priceless word-of-mouth referrals that our members offer to sponsors when the conference is over. Sponsors will be acknowledged in the conference syllabus and in the winter issue of APH Perspectives, our industry trade journal, with a distribution of more than 700 copies.

The Sponsorship & Advertising Chart (pdf) shows a complete listing of all sponsorship opportunities. Any of these options may be adjusted or combined to suit your needs and your budget. If you're inclined to think outside the box, you may have some ideas of your own for ways to help support our conference. In-kind donations are gratefully accepted and will be classified at the appropriate sponsorship level.

If you can't attend our conference in person this year, we can make arrangements so you can still take advantage of some of these opportunities.
