Webinar • Thursday, May 06, 2021 • 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET | Qualifies for 1 CAE Credit 


A year ago, structuring sponsorship offerings around events met sponsors’ needs. Now, events are going virtual and hybrid—and associations must restructure their sponsorships. There are many options to pursue, but not all of them are successful.

In fact, in restructuring sponsorships, associations are failing to meet sponsors’ needs in three critical ways. Fixing these mistakes lets you navigate this “beyond events” era.

Let an expert show you how to re-engage with partners to increase their satisfaction — and your sponsorship revenues.
