Sponsorship Opportunities

EASTEC Sponsorships give you the opportunity to reach a broad cross-section of decision makers with your marketing message. The EASTEC audience influences buying decisions and represents several growth industries, including, aerospace, defense, industrial machinery, and more. With an EASTEC sponsorship package, you will build brand awareness, increase industry exposure, and drive traffic to your exhibit. SME can build a custom sponsorship for your company that best suits your needs and objectives, or you can take advantage of one of our pre-packaged sponsorship opportunities:

Keynote
Align your company with industry leaders by sponsoring a keynote presentation. Our keynote presenters are recognized as experts in their industries and can give great recognition to your company. You will also receive the keynote registration list to see exactly who attended.

Networking Reception
Align yourself with your target market by sponsoring one of the most attended events during the show. The Networking Reception will be an open invitation to all exhibitors and attendees but can be customized to incorporate your company message, theme, or branding, or have your own private section.

Sponsored Speaking Event
Do you have a topic or speaker that you think would fit into the EASTEC event? Use it as an opportunity to sponsor a custom speaking event. Whether you’re looking to promote your event to targeted group of attendees or open to the entire EASTEC audience, our sponsorship team will work with you to coordinate your event within EASTEC to best meet your needs.

Signage
Let attendees know who and where you are with custom event signage. You will have the opportunity showcase your company with prominent signage in select high traffic areas of the event.

Themed/Branded Areas
Make an area of EASTEC all about you by being the exclusive sponsor of a themed/branded area. With the option of signage, giveaways and marketing, you will have a highly visible location that will increase your company’s presence at EASTEC. Some available options for a themed/branded area are:

  • Beirgarten – Attendees can enjoy beverages and entertainment in this highly visible outside location.
  • Attendee Lounge – A place for attendees to relax and enjoy complimentary amenities like a shoe shine, massage, refreshments, etc.
  • Golf Simulator – Attendees will gather around to see who has the best shot in and take a few of their own.
  • NASCAR Simulator – Attendees will have the opportunity to sit in a real car and drive with the pros.

Registration
Registration is one of the busiest areas of the show. Each attendee will have to make their way through registration, making it an ideal location to boost your brand awareness. Have your company’s brand placed on bags, the back of the badges, and signs throughout the area.

READE
Are you “READE” to boost your exhibit ROI? With the READE (pronounced READY) package, you will have everything you need to be more than just an exhibitor at EASTEC.

  • Registration giveaway
