Yes! We have an On Demand sponsorship opportunity that allows for one of three recognition options to be added to the On Demand access platform: your logo, or ad or commercial. Attendees will have access to this platform and your recognition choice for 90 days following the event.

We anticipate having 400 in-person attendees but more will be joining us online.

Exhibit space will be in the Exhibit Hall, which adjoins the Ballroom where General Sessions will take place. Breakouts will be in the Courtyard Rooms on the lower level. Each 10×10 booth will consist of a skirted 6’ table with 2 chairs, back draping and 3’ side drapes.

Exhibitors will set up from 9:00am – noon on Wednesday, September 20th. Tear down takes place from 3:00-5:00pm on Thursday, September 21st. Be sure to come join our Concourse Carnival on the lower level from 5:00-7:00pm.

Booth assignments will be made and shared with exhibitors in mid-August.

The post-conference attendee list is paired with a Lead Retrieval app again this year. The Lead Retrieval app can be downloaded to your mobile device at the conference. The app allows you to connect with potential customers with a simple scan of their name badge. Once scanned, you can take notes, create specific questions to ask attendees, rank the lead and export your leads in multiple ways.

All upper-level sponsors receive the list as part of their sponsorship. Sapphire sponsors receive the Lead Retrieval tool and attendee list for an additional $250. For Exhibitors, the Lead Retrieval and attendee list costs an additional $500.

Nearly 5 hours of dedicated time with exhibitors is scheduled for attendees. Adjustments to the schedule will be available on the KS SHRM State Conference website.

All meals available to attendees will also be available to our business partners on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday throughout the day. 

Information will be shared with sponsors in August regarding where and when to ship promotional items to the Overland Park Convention Center for attendee conference bags.
