2018 GPA Midstream Convention Promotional & Advertising Opportunities
The 2018 GPA Midstream Sponsorship Packet is available for review. Our convention schedule is changing in 2018, which means sponsorship opportunities have changed too. Take a look at the 2018 packet for complete details on the new opportunities.
When/How Can I Sign Up?
Registration for all opportunities will open on Oct. 25, 2017 at 10 a.m. Central Standard Time and are available on a first–paid, first–served basis, meaning payment is required to secure your sponsorship. For opportunities priced at more than $2,500, companies have the option of paying a 50% deposit to secure those opportunities. Please note that checks and purchase orders mailed prior to the Oct. 25 opening date will not guarantee an opportunity for any company and will be returned.
The fastest, easiest way to secure your sponsorship is by signing up and paying online, and the earlier you sign up, the more exposure your company will receive. GPA Midstream will send an e-mail that morning with a link to the online payment form.
Company Name/Logo Recognition
GPA Midstream handles company name and logo recognition according to each company’s cumulative sponsorship spend based on the following levels: $500 - $750, $1,000 and up, $1,500 and up, $2,000 and up. For details, see Appendix A, p. 20. Note that hospitalities are handled differently, so Appendix A does not apply to hospitality spends (see “Hospitalities” next page).
Each opportunity has a Maximum Available section to advise as to how many sponsors there can be for that particular option. Opportunities priced at $10,000 or more give those sponsors the right of first refusal for the following year, so in the case of the large breakfasts and the Friends Package, those spots may already be full, or limited, depending on the previous year’s sponsors’ decisions to renew. For the most accurate count of remaining opportunities, visit this page, which will be updated daily.
The Fine Print and Associated Deadlines
Every opportunity also has sections called “The Fine Print” and “Associated Deadlines.” Please review “The Fine Print” carefully to learn about requirements and restrictions specific to each sponsorship and exhibit option. The “Associated Deadlines” section applies once a company has secured that particular opportunity, so GPA Midstream encourages you to put those deadline reminders on your calendar so an opportunity for exposure isn’t missed.
Pricing for Members vs. Non-Members
The prices listed within the document are for GPA Midstream/GPSA members only. For non–member pricing, contact Crystal Myers.
We couldn’t make the convention happen without our sponsors’ support. See what companies made the 2017 conference a success.
