We’re looking for a few (well, hopefully more than a few) good sponsors!
NEPA BlogCon is an annual event where bloggers, social media mavens, tech ninjas, thinkers, dreamers, students, non-profits, and businesses come together to learn about communicating effectively online. Whether it’s through building a professional brand through blogging or networking and making career connections through social media, our goal is to help you have the tools you need to make it happen. We also want to do good in our community, so NEPA BlogCon is a charitable event where each year, we donate the proceeds to a local non-profit serving Northeastern Pennsylvania. But, we can’t do this alone. We need the support of local businesses and organizations who can make this year’s event a success through sponsorship. For NEPA BlogCon 2016, we’re now seeking sponsorship applications and inquiries for businesses that want to engage with our conference presenters and attendees – and trust us, we’re a fun crowd!
You’ll help to plant the seed for something big in our area while connecting your organization with influencers, thought leaders, and members of Northeastern Pennsylvania blogger and social networking communities. This is a demographic that has stories to tell and can help you tell yours. You’ll get laser focused exposure to an audience that’s truly engaged and ongoing support as one of our partners for the technology camp we’re launching (double the exposure, double the fun!). We couldn’t do these events without you and we appreciate each and every contribution.
Who Does NEPA BlogCon Benefit?
All proceeds from NEPA BlogCon 2016 will benefit youth technology education in our community, specifically a girl’s summer technology camp (grades 4-6). There’s nothing like this available regionally and it’s a tremendous opportunity for these students, as well as our community. STEM education in our region needs help, and we want to be part of that change. When you sponsor NEPA BlogCon, you’ll be helping not just our event, but also the Squirrel Girls Tech Camp, which will be offered to students at a free or very low cost thanks to your scholarship contribution (that’s right – your sponsorship for our event is actually sending students to our camp next year through scholarship!) Also, donation letters for tax purposes are available for every level of sponsorship (monetary donations only).
Benefits of Sponsorship
- Our attendees generate thousands of pieces of content related to the conference and sponsors, ranging from tweets about SWAG bag goodies to photos of sponsored venues, banners, or signage.
- Our attendees and the NEPA BlogCon team also generate thousands of impressions through use of hashtags on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, and Tumblr.
- The NEPA BlogCon team is active in local and social media, often appearing on local news stations and obtaining coverage (and sponsor mention) in several local and regional publications, as well as on numerous blogs and social channels.
- Sponsoring NEPA BlogCon means you’ll get access to work with our attendees not only during our event, but also in the months leading up to it. Connect with us (and them!) throughout the year and you’ll have a fully engaged audience.
Let’s Recap. With your help, NEPA BlogCon can continue to grow to become one of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s most prominent and exciting events. Plus, you’re helping us bring NEPA into a new era by supporting our STEM education projects.
