We’ve put together some suggestions below for Sponsoring State of Search (say that 10 times fast…) but if you and your organization wants to try something outside the box, let us know.

Don’t be concerned if you don’t see your favorite sponsorship option. Just tell us your dream recipe and we’ll whip something up that’s perfect for YOU.

One thing to keep in mind if you’re thinking of sponsoring State of Search – our programming is Vendor Neutral. This means we do not “sell” speaking slots as part of our sponsor program. But that doesn’t mean you cannot have someone from your company on the State of Search stage. We encourage all of our sponsors to have speakers pitch their highest quality, unique content for consideration by our speaker selection panel.

If someone from your company is selected to speak, you do have the option of sponsoring their session to increase brand exposure. If you don’t want a spot on the stage, you might choose to sponsor sessions with speakers and content that align with your brand.

Note: You’ll find a form at the foot of this page to make it easy for you to tell us what you have a taste for.
