Sponsorship Opportunities

Partner with NATS in support of important programs at the 52nd NATS National Conference

The NATS 52nd National Conference offers exceptional exposure to the largest concentration of singing teachers in the world. More than 700 participants are expected to attend, including voice teachers and their students, vocal coaches, musicians, singers, and other industry professionals.

Special sponsorships are available revolving around our most popular conference events: the opening night reception, the gala banquet, and our coffee breaks. These events are extremely well-attended, and your sponsorship of one of them will afford your company or educational institution visibility to virtually every attendee at each event. Each sponsorship has a variety of complimentary perks, such as exhibit booth space, advertising space in the conference program book, signage at all events, free advertising on the conference and NATS websites, and discounts on other NATS advertising opportunities.

Increase your brand recognition in the voice community
Recognition of your sponsorship begins months before the conference and extends through 2012 in NATS publications and with hyperlinked logos on the conference web pages. The sooner you make your sponsorship commitment, the sooner recognition begins! Sponsors are recognized in the program book and on signs at conference registration. Sponsors of specific events are recognized verbally and with signage at those events.

Network with your existing and prospective customers
Gold and Silver Level sponsorships include a table with prime visibility in the Exhibit Hall. Visitors to the Registration Center and a complimentary coffee service will ensure regular traffic throughout the day.

Show your support for the largest organization serving singing teachers
The respect that singing teachers and singers give to NATS is extended to those who support it. Everyone in the singing world knows that membership dues alone cannot sustain all of NATS’s programs. It is also well-known that arts patrons are inclined to favor corporations that support the arts.

Customized sponsorship packages are available!
The benefits of the various levels of sponsorship are described in the NATS Conference Marketing Prospectus. Customized packages are available that will best achieve your marketing and branding goals.
