Sponsors

Just like you were way way (way) back in your college days, we were immature freshmen, slightly awkward sophomores, and apprehensive juniors. But now that CMEpalooza is entering its senior year of programming (ie, the fourth one – we didn’t flunk a grade), we know who we are, we know what we offer, and we know why we matter.

It’s thanks to the many organizations that have supported CMEpalooza with their sponsorship dollars that we have continually been able to demonstrate our creativity, and we’re hoping that you will continue to help us evolve again in 2018.

Throughout the run-up to each event, as well as on the day of each broadcast, CMEpalooza Spring and Fall reaches thousands of professionals from around the globe who are involved in the planning and execution of CME programs. We inform, we educate, and we entertain, all with the purpose of drawing interest to our broadcast and supporters of our programs.

In the past 4 years, more than 50 companies and organizations have aligned themselves with CMEpalooza, showing faith in the ability of our platform to get their names out and promote their businesses through regular exposure via our website and social media channels.

In 2018, we are again inviting CME providers, supporters, and service companies to take advantage of sponsorship opportunities with CMEpalooza Spring (2 days: Wednesday, April 25 and Thursday, April 26) and CMEpalooza Fall (Wednesday, October 17). Our full Sponsor Prospectus is available by clicking on this link. 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.

We have individual and package sponsorships available, as well as other creative opportunities to promote your company. We’ve thrown a few new goodies out again this year as well. If there is anything particularly creative you have in mind, come talk to us. We’ll be the ones collecting money for watered-down Milwaukee’s Best from freshmen at the door.
