Here is a riddle for you: What can travel around the world while staying in a corner? (keep reading)
Here is another riddle for you: What has a head and a tail, but no body? (a little more…)
As you are wracking your brain to try to figure out the answers, I’ll give you something much, much easier to think about: a CMEpalooza sponsorship!
Yes indeed, CMEpalooza will be back in 2020 for the sixth consecutive year with Spring and Fall meetings (Wednesday, April 15 and Wednesday, October 14) to continue our mission of no-cost, high-quality education for the CME/CE community. Our audience and influence continue to grow – we broke records (again) in 2019 for web site visitors and session viewership. That’s good news for us and good news for our sponsors. More eyeballs means more exposure.
As always, we’re introducing some new features into the old bag of tricks in 2020, and that goes for our sponsorship features as well. You’ll see in the Sponsor Prospectus (click here to access) that we have added a few new goodies to bring even more value to our sponsors in the coming year. Take a look at “By the Numbers” page within the prospectus if you want some hard data on our events. If you want any additional information, just ask. We crunch data throughout the year and just feature some of the more impressive numbers here.
Our sponsorships tend to go quickly these days, especially at the higher tiers where there are limited numbers, so don’t think for too long if you are interested in those.
Oh, before we forget, back to the riddles: A stamp and a coin. You are welcome.
