Promotional Sponsorship Opportunities

Businesses need promotional items to help reach out to potential clients. This is a very low-cost marketing method to help draw in new clients.

Business cards and brochures are good, but the issue we have now is that there are just too many and they pile up. That’s why promotional items are PERFECT. And our LISHA Fall Conference participants love receiving these items. By putting your company’s name, logo and contact information on them, you will reach potential clients in a unique way, instead of just stuffing yet another business card in their wallet.

Even better, there is only a $250 fee for these promotional sponsorships. The only other cost to you, is the cost of the promotional item you choose to give.

Sponsorships are on a first come first served basis, so please respond ASAP. Your item(s) will be distributed at registration by LISHA to the over 300 Conference Participants in Attendance.

The following items are some ideas for your logo imprinted item(s). (400 pc min.)
