After producing this conference and Fusion for the last seven years, we have determined that the sponsors that have strictly adhered to the deadlines have had the most successful and productive experience as a sponsor. Thus we have just recently implemented this procedure of having the sponsor contact person sign off on a document stating that have received and understand the guidelines, deadlines and the consequences if they are missed.
• Sponsor description for website and program – as soon as possible
• High resolution logo (.eps format) – as soon as possible
• Ad for print program – Friday, February 1, 2013
• Conference registrations – Friday, January 18, 2013
• Conference bag materials – Friday, February 22, 2013
In addition to the internal passes for your organization, we will extend complimentary registrations to IT professionals that you invite from your clients or potential clients. The number of passes is determined by your sponsorship level. Speakers/presenters from sponsor organization are included in the total number of sponsor passes.
Go to www.fusion2013.com to register both your internal passes and your clients – select the appropriate level and then enter the promotional code given to you in an e-mail. If your complimentary passes are not registered by January 18, 2013, the passes will be forfeited so that we may extend invitations on your behalf.
The registration deadlines are in place to ensure that we have a quality audience at the event. We strive to keep the ratio of the audience at no more than 33% vendor participation. We also feel that if you do not invite clients in a timely manner, there is the possibility as the event date approaches that the clients will not be available and those passes will go unused and affect our ratio. We reserve the right after the registration deadline to rescind your complimentary passes and issue them to other end user executives at our discretion. Internal passes must also be registered by the deadline. Sharing passes is not allowed. We understand that in some emergency cases, the need for substitutions may occur and ask that you notify us by February 17, 2013 if a substitution must be made.

Please send your logo as soon as you’ve signed your contract so that it may appear on any conference promotional materials as well as the Fusion 2013 website.
