Q: Can I commit to sponsorship now but pay closer to the  event?
A: Your payment is your commitment. Your benefits will be activated when we receive payment.

Q: How will my logo be placed?
A: Whenever all sponsor logos are displayed together, they will be arranged from left to right and top  to bottom within the PLATINUM, GOLD and SILVER groups in order the date that payment was received (earliest first).

Q:  I’ve got a great idea for a sponsorship opportunity that you haven’t listed. What can I do?
A: The organizers of the conference love new ideas.  Contact us at sponsors@agilemidwest.org and we’ll explain  other a la carte sponsorship opportunities (i.e. table tents, lunch, registration, banner).  We will work with you to make it happen where possible.

Q: What about the event logistics and key fulfillment dates?
A: After you sign up to sponsor, you will be contacted via e-mail for ongoing communication, which in-  cludes comprehensive logistics information to help ensure a successful event.

Q: I don’t need all my free passes. Can I give them away?
A: Certainly! All badges provide access to the conference. You may give them to friends or customers.

Q: Can I leave things at my booth overnight?
A: The exhibit area is NOT secure. It is mostly private and receives little traffic, but it would be wise to  slide things under your table and to remove expensive equipment. The conference does not provide  any lockable storage.

Q: When can I setup my booth?
A: You can setup your booth the full week (Mon-Thurs) and please note that the majority of the attendance will be on the day of the Conference (Thursday).

Q: How many people can I bring to work the booth?
A:  PLATINUM and GOLD  sponsors each receive a certain number of complimentary general admission passes which are typically used for the booth staff. If you need more passes for additional staff, standard attendee tickets may be purchased.

Q: Are there any restrictions on booths? What’s included?
A: Exhibiting sponsors will receive a 6’ rectangle table, 2 chairs, a power strip, free WiFi . To ensure safety of all of our attendees, your exhibit must fit  into your designated booth space and tall popup banners need to be on the floor, and not placed on  the table. No part of an exhibit and no signs or other materials may be pasted, nailed, or otherwise affixed to walls, doors, or other surfaces in a way that mars or defaces the premises or equipment and furnishings. Damage from failure to observe this notice is payable by the sponsor.

Q: Where will my booth be?
A: Sponsors will be able to make booth selections based on their Sponsorship level and the date we re-  ceive payment. We will send out final booth location the evening before you need to be there.
