Sponsorship:

With thousands of contacts across the state of Florida, FLAGGL has an extensive reach.  Our conference email blasts will reach professionals in the small business industry every 2-4 weeks, leading up to the start of the conference.  All conference sponsors will have prominent placement on these email  blasts and on our website, based on level of commitment.

The exhibitor hall will be placed directly within the first portion of the ballroom, so that attendees must enter through the exhibit hall to attend all general sessions and meals.  Throughout the conference, we ensure that there is a significant amount of time between sessions for networking and exhibitor visits.  In addition, all food and beverage is placed directly in the exhibitor hall.  Our exhibit booth always sell out, and location is assigned based on order of registration, so be sure to register early!
