Fusion is a highly interactive event. Your presence in the sessions and at the networking events will put you front and center. You meet C-level executives and high-level IT managers who attend to network with their peers and engage in lively discussions.

Some of the sponsorship benefits include:

(updated as of December 10, 2012)

Address conference
The Fusion advisory board works closely with platinum sponsors to develop a session through which their organization can display its knowledge and expertise at an executive level. Not only do they have the opportunity to present in front of the Fusion audience, but they also benefit from interaction with executive advisors who help them refine and target their message.

Advisory board membership
Join the inside track with many of the speakers and attendees as a major influence on the conference. Platinum is the only sponsorship level with this benefit.

Exclusive executive strategic briefings/Focus Groups
On March 6th, meet with a group of senior-level attendees from end-user organizations (20 to 30 CIOs, VP of IT, CTO, IT Directors) for approx. 40 minutes for Silver and 60 minutes for Gold and Platinum. This briefing will open up a two-way strategic dialog between you and key attendees and allow you to further demonstrate your expertise. Your presentation should not half the time to allow for the last half to be CIO dialog. These are not to be used as sales presentations and slides (if used at all) will be limited to no more than 5. The advisory board will vet your presentation and topic for relevancy and commercial messaging. Final session description must be submitted and approved prior to Dec. 16th. Vendor attendance is limited due to seating availability. There are a limited number of the briefings/focus groups available and if not available, a comparable benefit will be substituted.
