MPI THCC Sponsorship Opportunities for Meeting Your Marketing Goals

Let's Form A Powerful Alliance...

One of MPI THCC's main goals is always to design educational sessions and networking programs that provide high-impact opportunities beneficial to both planners and suppliers. While these events are critical to providing value to the membership, we feel it's just as critical that we offer sponsorship opportunities that provide value and flexibility, from cash sponsorships to in-kind support to opportunities to show off a venue.
 
It's maximum flexibility with minimum hassle: We're with you all the way and we want to help you "up" your ROI!
The chapter's Strategic Alliances team is ready to partner up with sponsors for 2016-17!
 

We have top-notch opportunities available...and if you're looking for ways to really stand out from the crowd, we're thrilled to discuss customized sponsorship packages; we want to be a collaborative partner in helping you create new business relationships as well as nurture existing ones.

2016-17 Strategic Alliances Program...
