Sponsorship

Why partner with IWDPTBO?

We invite you to work with us to create Strategic Partnership Opportunities to connect your business with our dynamic conference attendees.

The 2nd annual 2018 IWDPTBO conference will again bring together 150 diverse professional women on International Women’s Day – Thursday, March 8, 2018.  The 2018 conference theme is ENGAGE – SHARE – EMPOWER.

Our goal is to allow sponsors the opportunity to be front of mind with conference attendees from the time you commit to sponsorship prior to the event via social media, web-links and more. On the day of the event, sponsors will be able to showcase their brand based on your level of sponsorship and connect face-to-face with a wide range of women participating in this day of celebration and learning.

The IWDPTBO conference features recognized and newly emerging speakers and workshop facilitators to share their stories, to engage participants, and empower them on an array of topics that address the wide ranging needs and interests of women in our community. Eighty-five percent of 2017 conference attendees reported that they were highly likely to attend the 2018 conference.

We would like to invite you to get involved as a sponsor to support Peterborough’s International Women’s Day Conference.

The purpose of this conference is to Engage, Share, Empower! — to lift the voices of women, to empower and deepen every woman’s sense of worth, and to inspire us all to take action to improve our community. You can choose from our many different levels of sponsorship to help make this a reality.

With each level of sponsorship, we want to engage you in contributing to the conference in a way that is meaningful to you, and, in return, we will work to ensure that your commitment and your business is shared as part of our marketing and promotion of this event.
