Becoming a Sponsor

Thank you for your interest in being a WABE sponsor!  A major strength of our convention is the outstanding relationship we have with and the support we receive from, our suppliers and vendors.

There are three levels of sponsorship that a sponsor can participate in.  Each level is designed to give you maximum exposure for your contribution.  Of course, the higher the level, the greater the benefit and exposure a sponsor receives.  Please see the categories below, which outline the benefits given with each level of sponsorship.
