Often, ticket sales alone will not event breakeven of an event if ticket prices are to be kept affordable to all interested participants and attendees. Event sponsorships also bring credibility to an event sponsored by respected and recognized brands because it indicates that sponsors believe in our events, quality, and value. Event sponsorships “in kind” help to provide accommodation and cover travel costs for speakers willing to teach but unable to afford to present at no charge and cover their own travel expenses for flights to the event venues. Other in kind event sponsorships can be designated to cover venue rental costs, catering costs, and printing or creative costs such as videography, editing, photography, and so forth. You may also decide that you would prefer to sponsor a featured keynote speaker by underwriting their speaker honoraria and travel costs.
Sponsors on the CHTS website pay for their appearance on the site, clickable links to their websites, and for banner advertising, notification advertising, and sponsoring education and training courses both at live events and in virtual classrooms that cost money to produce and host. They purchase sponsorships in the form of sponsorship packages that afford them the opportunity to promote their logo, have display advertising, contribute articles and educational courses that promote their products, improve their image, differentiate themselves and create public awareness of their brand. Each link to their websites also builds SEO value for trust and authority of their websites.
