"PCMA-zing" Sponsorship Opportunities

Need Yet Another Reason to Take Advantage of “PCMA-zing” Sponsorship Opportunities? READ ON!

Here’s what Kevin Udell, Director of Sales for The Jekyll Island Authority, had to say about his experience as a Program Sponsor for the February PCMA Southeast Chapter luncheon:
“As Director of Sales for the Jekyll Island Authority and responsible for booking the convention meetings market, I am always searching for new ways to maximize my ROI and Return on Time to attract new and existing planners to consider us for their conference needs. We attend the normal Atlanta meeting planner functions, along with a series of meetings and small Lunch & Learn events to educate the planners about the destination and feel that we receive a great return on those events.”

“However, one of the best ROI and ROT I have ever experienced was the February 4th PCMA luncheon we helped sponsor, with 140 planners, suppliers and industry experts in attendance. In my opinion, this event was one of the very best examples of a well-run, well-managed event, which maximized the interaction between planner and supplier in a beautiful, fun environment, and with first rate speakers all under an umbrella of a friendly and fun venue, where everyone was relaxed and could enjoy the presentation. You simply could not ask more for your investment! We have already received several RFPs, with several more on the way. More importantly, we were afforded the opportunity to interface with industry leaders in such an intimate setting, where they had time to discuss their needs and our resources. I would suggest that anyone looking for an opportunity to sponsor an Atlanta-based meeting planner function, look no further than the PCMA luncheon. It is not very often in the business world where the reality of the goods purchased exceeds the promise, and this is the case with the PCMA luncheon.”

We have many more opportunities as well -- to fit any budget!
