New Year, New Opportunities

Happy New Year. It’s official – 2018 has arrived at our doorsteps and the new year is already set in action. As we strategize and begin to check-off our personal New Year’s resolutions task list, we also have a fresh opportunity to review our current business marketing strategies for the fiscal year. One way to do so is to seek new sponsorship opportunities.

Why the ACVB Sponsors

As a National Sales Manager at Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau and current MPI Georgia board member, I sit on both sides of the sponsorship realm. The bureau is extremely pleased with our sponsorship investment. We are excited for the opportunity to partner with the 7th largest chapter within MPI’s global network of 90 chapters. It allows us the ability to personally connect, network and build relationships with local planners, suppliers & industry leaders. All of which are equally vital to ensure our community’s success as a premiere meeting destination.

Our annual partnership with MPI Georgia creates a new platform to showcase the exciting new developments and trends taking place in our destination. More importantly, our partnership allows us an opportunity to inspire local meeting planners that Atlanta, GA. The visibility our sponsorship affords us is unperilled in the local market and we will continue to partner with MPI Georgia for the foreseeable future.

Why You Should Sponsor

Simply put, “It’s your time to shine.” Sponsorship of any kind, allows you an opportunity to personally craft a message which allows your targeted audience to learn more about who you are and what you do. At MPI Georgia, sponsorship is geared toward businesses that are an appropriate brand fit for the organization. Our goal is to ensure that MPI Georgia’s audience ultimately reflects the type of recipient that will benefit from your business products and/or services.
