Become a Conference Sponsor -- Maximize your Investment, Increase Your Visibility

Bring your company to the attention of the Illinois library community! Becoming an Illinois Library Conference sponsor represents an extraordinary opportunity to complement your company’s marketing plan.

The 2015 Conference: A Library State of Mind brings together library organizations in Illinois for a chance to connect, network, and learn together. Academic, public, school, and special libraries will come together for the first combined annual conference of the Illinois Library Association and Illinois School Library Media Association, in collaboration with the Illinois Association of College and Research Libraries and the Special Libraries Association Illinois Chapter.

The conference offers many types of sponsorship opportunities at various levels as listed below. At exclusive level, your company name will be synonymous with the project of your choosing. Multiple investments can be added together to give you eligible status at a higher level. This offers you further benefits.

Past sponsors have first choice for the upcoming conference. Sponsorships are available at an exclusive level or can be shared as a co-sponsorship. Sponsors can also choose a suite of sponsorship opportunities that add up to the benefit level of your choosing.

Passport to Prizes
The conference offers a booth traffic building promotion called Passport to Prizes.  This is a fun way to attract and keep attendees on the exhibit floor. Each attendee will receive a passport with their registration credentials.  The attendee must stop by each participating exhibitor to receive a stamp on his or her passport.  The attendee must complete the entire Passport in order to be eligible for the Prize Drawing that will be held on both exhibit days. Attendees must be present at the Prize Drawing to win. The Passport to Prize fee is $400.
