Session Title: Tactics for Better Revenue Results and Relationships with Sponsors, Exhibitors &Advertisers

Revenue generation is an essential activity for every association, and sponsors, exhibitors and advertisers are savvy buyers with high ROI expectations. Association professionals responsible for those revenue streams often have limited sales training or experience, and of the many hats they wear, sales might not be the favorite. This interactive workshop is geared toward professionals who want to increase revenue, build stronger relationships with association supporters, and maybe even enjoy the sales process a bit more! 

Key Takeaways

  • Craft, discuss and act on the unique value proposition your association has to offer
  • Align your offering with what advertisers, exhibitors, and sponsors expect in return for their investment
  • Ensure your website and collateral fully support your sales efforts
  • Better prioritize your actions for better topline results

Additionally, you'll walk away with checklists and specific tactics you can implement right away!
