Advertising Opportunities

NEW!!! Introducing GSBA-TV!

Sponsor one or more videos as we introduce GSBA-TV. A professional video team, Bed Head Media, will capture brief nuggets of information during the summer conference and post immediately on social media. Your sponsorship of $400 per video will allow GSBA to reach educators and the general public beyond the walls of the hotel with recorded interviews on topics discussed at the pre-conference workshops, conference sessions, and specifically, topics related to The Georgia Vision Project for Public Education. The more videos you sponsor the more times your brand is seen on our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, website and mobile app.


Sponsors receive:

  • Recognition as a conference sponsor in the conference booklet, if by May 5.
  • Recognition as a GSBA-TV sponsor in the business booklet, if by May 12.
  • Visible recognition as a sponsor - Your logo will appear in the lower right corner during the entire video.
  • Recognition on signage in the exhibit area as a GSBA-TV sponsor.
  • Videos will be posted on GSBA social media and can be shared from our social media platforms to yours.
  • The option to provide a marketing piece by May 12 that GSBA will include in each of the 800 conference bags. 


UPDATED 
“Show and Tell” Videotaped Commercial at the Conference - $300 for approx. one minute

We are often asked about speaking opportunities. Lengthy breakout sessions by businesses are not possible at this time. Whether you are an exhibitor or a business representative, a video, approximately one minute (may be a little more), can be shown on a monitor in the lobby in a loop with other promotional messages during exhibit hours. For examples of what you can do, although these were not created by Bed Head Media, visit: http://myatlantahomeshow.com/ or click on Home and Garden Design, Inc. which is 1:09 minutes. 


For $300, choose one of these three ways:

  • Provide a video of your own, or
  • Provide 10 PowerPoint slides to be shown in 6 second increments, or
  • Allow GSBA's video team to create a video of your spokesperson.  Allocate about 15 minutes for filming with our top-notch production crew and equipment. Be ready with your message and any optional props and visuals. Don't be shy and don't worry about bloopers! The video will be edited and provided to you while at the conference for posting and distributing on your  website or social media, too.


Column Banner Ads - $125

Your logo will be placed on an 11 ft. x 30" column banner in the Hyatt lobby from June 7-9. Provide a hi-res logo (.jpg or .ai file) that will be placed in an 18" x 30" area (including margin). Availability is limited due to the maximum number of potential banners.

Friday Night Dance Drink Tickets - $70 for 10 generic design; $75 for 10 customized tickets

Whether you can come or not - Treat your customers and potential customers! Each ticket can be exchanged for soft drink, house wine, beer or well drinks. Customization will be done by GSBA by adding your logo and short message like your contact information or another message. For customization, order immediately. Purchase as many sheets of 10 as you wish and distribute tickets as you wish Thursday and Friday.

Pencil Drop Box – $100 (regularly $200) plus prize of $50 minimum value

Exhibitors can take advantage of this special price for the popular conference game. Let us know
by May 12. You also provide the prize of your choice for the drawing, minimum value $50. Entry forms with your company name will be published in the exhibitor booklet. Attendees tear out the form and bring it to you to hole-punch with a unique hole-puncher provided by GSBA. Take that time to interest them in your company's offerings. Then, they are supposed to drop it the matching drop box that is somewhere in plain sight in the exhibit area (not by your table) to be eligible for the drawing. The drop box looks like a 4' pencil with your company name it. This is for 1/2 day (4 hours) - Thursday morning OR Thursday afternoon OR Friday morning.
