Sponsors Only Sessions!

Sponsor Only Business Sessions ~ FYI: Please note, Friday morning Sessions and lunch is for our SPONSORS ONLY! 

WHEN: FRIDAY November 4, 2016 starting 8:45- 11am.

This year, the sponsor only business sessions will be broken down into two critical pieces. 1) Social Media for Business and 2) How to Work With Bloggers. Bloggers, and marketers, Erica Dermer and Keeley McGuire will guide you through the process on how to engage customers and influencers, and work with influencers to engage even more customers. You’ll leave the session with check-lists and a better understanding of how to work with influencers to build your brand and gain loyal customers.

Social Media for Businesses: 

Okay so you have a Facebook page, Instagram, or Snapchat. But do you know the rules? Are you using each platform to its full extent for both customers and influencers? Do you know what to do and what not to do with influencers via social media? Learn about how to interact with customers, and ultimately influencers, online.

How to Work with Bloggers:

How do all of these brands have such big name influencers touting about their products? As you can guess, it’s not free, and it’s not cheap – but it’s valuable. You too can learn how to work with influencers, small to mega stars, to build loyalty and increase brand recognition in the market place. But where do I even start? What’s beyond a sponsored post? How much should I be paying bloggers? How can I do it all with a minimal staff? Don’t worry, you’ll learn all of this and more!

Sponsors will be served a light lunch and be allowed access to the expo to set up their booths prior to expo opening time of 1PM- 6PM; and Saturday Expo hours will run 10AM-6PM. Expo wont be running on Sunday – so be sure to get in to visit the brands who all help make this happen by Saturday night- Especially if you are trying to get raffle tickets for the various raffle prizes we will have this year!
