We’re back… and we’re very excited (well, as excited as we can get) to start the wheels in motion for our next iteration of CMEpalooza in 2019. After a record-breaking 2018 – most session viewers in our history, most sponsors ever – we’re ready for something even greater this year.
As always, we’ll have our Spring and Fall events (Wednesday, April 17 and Wednesday, October 16), both involving full days of innovative, entertaining education for the CME/CE community. And as the visibility of CMEpalooza grows within our professional community, that means increased visibility for our sponsors as well. There were 38 organizations who sponsored CMEpalooza in 2018, aligning themselves with our events and supporting the top-notch education that we provide.
As usual, there are a few new things we’re offering our sponsors this year (you can get your own haiku this year – for reals). You can check out everything we have thought up in our Sponsor Prospectus – and we’re open to other creative suggestions (we say that every year, but you can still be the first ever to take us up on it). Check out the By the Numbers page at the end of this prospectus for demographic and traffic data on CMEpalooza, and feel free to ask us any questions you may have about the upcoming events.
Our sponsorships tend to go quickly these days, especially at the higher tiers where there are limited numbers, so don’t think too hard if you are interested in those.
We have individual and package sponsorships available, as well as other creative opportunities to promote your company. If there is anything particularly creative you have in mind, come talk to us. We don’t bite.
