ACPE Sponsor Update - February 12, 2018

Things are moving right along. For this update I want to give you a sense of the timeline of events happening until the conference.

Now until the conference

1. Spruce up your sponsor page on ACPE's website.
Sponsors should go to the sponsor page (http://events.acpenw.org/acpe-2018/sponsors), login (Top right) using anyone of the available social media means to authenticate, click on your name and register as a contact. Once approved you will be able to control all the content on your page including adding the logo of your choice and all contact info you want for the conference  too.

2. The sponsor session proposals are still open until March 1 March 8! 
This is your last reminder to get them in here: https://goo.gl/forms/eNG8HGsbNCLIKdbi1. We will announce the sessions selected before April 1.

3. Booth locations are not announced until sometime after April 1. 
I will be asking for your preference after March 1 when all of the locations are completed settled. You can view the current maps here: http://events.acpenw.org/acpe-2018/explore​. Please keep in mind it is still possible these locations could change based on the Board's decisions. You will be notified after April 1 with your location and all the logistics for shipping, set and tear down.

4. Registration for Sponsor staff attending the conference will open on April 1. 
You will receive an email with a link and code you will need to access the registration system.

5. Lodging is VERY tight this year. 
If you haven't taken care of it yet, you may want to make this your priority. See lodging information and choices here: http://sponsors.acpenw.org/lodging

All Detailed Sponsor Information and benefits descriptions are posted on this website.
Really just look and surprise yourself.

January 10, 2018 Update

We, meaning me, will not have any lodging available to reserve. Only our Diamond Sponsors get lodging (only for 4) as a benefit. This year Diamond sponsors will all get one suite at the resort and a vacation rental nearby within walking distance.

If you are a Gold or Platinum sponsor there are no rooms at the Resort (it's already sold out to our members). So you should use this lodging link and start looking and get something reserved now if you want to be close in.

I will say this in every update, please look on our ACPE Sponsor Guide website for detailed information. 
I'm pretty sure any question you have regarding logistics is answered there and we update that site as new information is available. Yes, it includes set up and tear down times, etc.

Your actual booth location cannot be released until the Board meets on March 24th to discuss the booth locations. 
Before then, I will be asking you for your desired location. Placements are a combination of first fully paid and what the Board decides. 

All invoices with outstanding balances due were sent out between January 5-8. 
Please look for it and plan for payment before February 1 or there's a risk of losing your spot to those on the waiting list. If you need to make other payment arrangements please email jb@acpenw.org.

My next update will include specific directions to edit, modify and beautify your ACPE sponsor page. 
We are currently linking all members' conference communication to that page starting last month. 

Wednesday and Thursday Night's Theme: Treasure IT
Sponsors' Conference registration opens April 1, 2018

ACPE will be offering limited attendance only registrations to vendors on our sponsor waiting list.
Sponsor information, to sign up for the waiting list, and to assure future contact from ACPE visit http://sponsors.acpenw.org

Sponsor Partner Session proposals is open until March 1

There are 10 session seminars this year for ACPE sponsors. Keep in mind, we haver over 60 sponsors signed up this year making this opportunity very competitive. Clearly, not everyone who submits a proposal will have a chance to participate. The Board makes that the decision on which proposals will have the greatest impact to our members.The ACPE Board begins the review of submitted proposals on January 15 and concludes all reviews by March 15. Only sponsors with selected proposals will be notified. If you are not selected, you will not be notified. Sponsor Partner Session selection is at the sole discretion of the ACPE Board and decisions are final.
