Since 2005, the SMCC Western Sponsorship Congress™ has provided professional development and networking opportunities that have focused on a range of sponsorship related topics from inventory development, prospecting, branding, designing proposals, technology, communications, case studies and insights from properties and corporate sponsors.
This two day conference – held annually in October in Calgary, Alberta – is one of the largest sponsorship focused events in Canada.
The Congress hosts 250 registered delegates and speakers from across North America. They represent a cross section of corporations and small businesses that invest in sponsorship, non-profits and charities, sports organizations (professional and amateur), all levels of government and advertising, communications, public relations and sponsorship agencies.
Don’t miss our exclusive half-day workshop in Calgary, featuring valuable insights tailored to the needs of municipalities and sponsors!
Attending delegates will receive a tool kit featuring the keys to building a municipal sponsorship program including how to get into the business, how to build a case for support in your community and how to engage procurement across all areas of a municipality.
