    Our chapter offers CVBs, National Hotel Sales Offices and other vendors the opportunity to sponsor an Arizona Sunbelt Chapter meeting or event.

    Exposure is exactly what you receive when you sponsor one of our Monthly Meetings or Special Events! Our chapter holds monthly meetings in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.

    These meetings provide outstanding educational and networking opportunities for planners and suppliers. Over the course of a year, we have approximately six meetings generally held on the second Thursday of the month, plus special events.

    Purpose and Impact of Partnership: Patterned after similar, successful programs in other chapters, the Arizona Sunbelt Chapter is actively soliciting potential CVB's, National Hotel Sales Offices and other vendors who are interested in receiving exposure to 150 meeting planners and suppliers in the state of Arizona. We are encouraging the local CVB/National Sales Offices to gather support from representatives of their featured venues to share in the cost of the partnership and directly participate in the event. Ultimately, we aim to be able to bring your representatives face to face with planners in an interactive environment where they may see all the benefits of placing business in your locale or properties.

    Benefits: The goal of each partnership is to provide you the maximum amount of exposure possible to later translate into business and sales opportunities. The benefits offered to monthly meeting sponsors include:

    • Sponsor name(s) and/or logo(s) included on all marketing for the event:
      1. Social Media
      2. Registration Website
      3. E-Newsletter
      4. Signage
      5. PowerPoint
    • Opportunity to set up a display with materials from the sponsoring venues(s) or destination(s) in the space reserved for event registration and networking reception. Planners can interact with representatives from these venues or destinations on a one-on-one basis to pick up information.
    • Ten minutes at the lectern dedicated to your organization.
    • Opportunity to decorate tables at the event or place collateral at place settings
    • Exposure on the MPI Arizona Sunbelt Chapter website
    • Up to four registrations for the sponsored event.

    2017/2018 months are booking quickly! Please contact Tiffany Higgins at 602-999-8197 or thiggins@mpi-az.org to reserve your sponsorship month. We look forward to learning more about how our organizations can partner together!
