Why Sponsor the 2024 MNFEA Conference?

Sponsoring the MNFEA Annual Conference is a unique and targeted way to get your name and message in front of a broad range of stakeholders with significant purchasing power. Our annual conference brings together 150-200 event professionals representing approximately 90 organizations for two days of education sessions, networking, and numerous opportunities to create and nurture lasting professional alliances.

Take advantage of this exclusive opportunity to reach decision makers of Minnesota’s event community from small volunteer-run events to some of the state’s largest events. Through sponsorship and advertising, you’ll enhance attendees’ conference experiences while increasing your company’s presence, networking opportunities, and impressions with customers.

Sponsorship opportunities are open to all those involved in or those who support the events industry! You do not need to be a member of MNFEA to participate.
