New Networking Opportunities at Winter #MACoCon

Would you like to do business with Maryland’s counties, state agencies, and nonprofit and commercial organizations involved in the work of local government? BECOME A SPONSOR! MACo is offering many NEW sponsorship opportunities this year!

wc16-sponsorship-brochure-coverMACo’s Winter Conference is December 7-9, 2016. More than 500 of Maryland’s county leaders and legislators gather at MACo’s Winter Conference to discuss the preeminent policy issues of the day.

As a sponsor of MACo’s Winter Conference, you will have the opportunity to get your company’s name, products, and services in front of the people you want to reach – decision-makers and stakeholders in local government.

In addition to other benefits listed in our 2016 Winter Conference Sponsorship Brochure, all sponsor information will be displayed on signage, online, in the printed program, and in our mobile app.

Here are several of the many sponsorship opportunities we are offering to help sponsors reach out to MACo’s Winter Conference attendees:

 after-hours-party After Hours Party – Be the host! Our guests like to gather in the evenings for networking and socializing. You could be the sponsor of the refreshments on Wednesday OR Thursday evening from 9:30 -11:30 pm. Decide the menu and offerings and have a representative present to welcome guests! Sponsor will be verbally thanked by MD at the end of that evening’s banquet, guests encouraged to attend. Sponsor receives 2 tickets to the evening’s banquet.
