SMPS Northeast Ohio Sponsorship

We are now accepting sponsors for the 2018-2019 program year!

Would your company benefit from having its logo and information featured in SMPSNEO events and communications? Would you be interested in a private lunch with the high level decision makers that participate in our monthly luncheon programs? What if SMPSNEO were to build our programs around topics and individuals that would directly enhance your business prospects? If you think your company would benefit from any of the opportunities above, you should consider becoming an annual partner of SMPSNEO. Contact Matthew Danis for more information! 

Become a sponsor of the SMPS Northeast Ohio Chapter for the 2018 - 2019 season and get targeted exposure and opportunities with the region's leaders in architecture, engineering and construction. Our distribution list includes over 750 representatives of local A/E/C firms. Your annual sponsorship will run from August 1, 2018 - July 31, 2019. Anyone signing up after August 1 will have their rates prorated.

For more information please contact

Sponsorship benefits include:

* Commercial will take place in the private speaker luncheon unless otherwise requested. 

Vendor Code of Conduct

Thank you for your support of SMPS Northeast Ohio, whether sponsoring or attending an event. It is through your kind support that we can offer so many wonderful professional programs to our members and attendees!

So that we can maximize the positive marketing impact for our valued sponsors, eliminate potential conflicts among competing vendors at the same event, and also maintain a professional, non-promotional focus to the networking portion of these meetings, we have developed the points below to guide you in SMPS Northeast Ohio chapter protocol, whether you are attending an event as a sponsor or simply as an attendee:

Sponsors' promotional material (i.e. sales literature, postcards, signage) distribution and/or set-up must be made by an SMPS Program Committee head , Sponsorship Committee head or by the Sponsor under the supervision of one of the aforementioned authorized SMPS Northeast Ohio board representatives. Only authorized SMPS Northeast Ohio Chapter sponsors are permitted to bring promotional materials to chapter events. Further, for any given event, only the authorized SMPS Northeast Ohio Chapter sponsor(s) sponsoring that particular event may bring and distribute promotional materials for that event. NOTE: this arrangement excludes "Annual Sponsors", who will develop custom promotional arrangements under the authorization and supervision of our Sponsorship Committee head.

Vendors other than those sponsoring a given event may attend SMPS events, and are not precluded from offering business cards (only) to other attendees in the normal course of conversations at the event, but may not otherwise broadly and/or randomly distribute business cards (i.e. placing business cards on seats or at tables). Promotional materials by non-sponsor vendors are strictly prohibited from SMPS Northeast Ohio chapter events.

Sponsorship benefits are restricted to those explicitly stated in this Sponsorship Agreement. No other benefits are explicitly or implicitly implied.

Although SMPS reserves the right to revoke permission for vendors and sponsors to attend one or more events should the above protocol be violated, SMPS expects that there will not be any problems with protocol compliance. Thank you again for your sponsorship!

What our sponsors are saying...

“SMPS has been a tremendous resource to our company [CBLH]. It has reshaped the way we conduct marketing. All of their programs, seminars, articles and conferences have given us the ability to educate our marketing staff on the changing tactics and strategies facing our industry. Lastly, we have built relationships through all the networking opportunities SMPS offers. It only made sense to support our chapter through sponsorship as they have supported us”.

John Rach, AIA, Director of Marketing
CBLH Design, Inc.

“We are proud once again to support the local SMPS Northeast Ohio Chapter as renewing Annual Sponsor, and have been actively engaged with the SMPS NEO Chapter for over 5 years now. It has been a pleasure to be a part of the SMPS NEO family, as it has brought us closer together with the local A/E/C community and has created new partnerships with fellow SMPS'ers.”

PCS Annual Sponsor

"My membership with SMPS was gifted to me while working at Karpinski Engineering and while I was hesitant to get involved in the operations of the board, I can’t imagine life without SMPS and my fellow committee members. Volunteering has afforded me not only great professional relationships, but great friendships as well. I truly believe our board members are the best around and some of the hardest working individuals I know. In short, I joined SMPS for the educational resources and have stayed for the relationships and interaction with fellow contemporaries and the fun."

Vanessa Aron

"As someone who was new to the industry, I was inspired by the NEO board members and all the hard work and dedication they put in to provide this region with an organization that is educational, entertaining and that puts you face to face with some of the most significant people throughout the A/E/C industry. As Membership & Social Media Chair, if I can give back to others half of what SMPSNEO has given to me; my job will have been a success."

Dave Eyssen
Precision Environmental Co.

"I discovered SMPS while looking at a Properties Magazine (no plug intended) and had a discussion with the owner of my firm, Scott Maloney. He encouraged me to get involved but stressed to really be engaged and take a role in the organization to really get something out of your membership. He was right! It was easy to engage with such a great group of people but really getting involved, being a part of the organization and not just an attendee has really opened up doors and introductions that would not have been possible. Coming from outside of the A/E/C industry prior to working at K2M, SMPS really helped me to understand and grasp this dynamic industry."

“The Mentor/Protégé program provided me a third-party resource to help me clarify and realize some of my career goals. By working with a mentor, I was able to identify those areas where I could improve my marketing skills, but also helped me see where my strengths were of benefit to my organization. I highly recommend this one-on-one program!”
