Conference Sponsorship FAQs

1. Sponsorship fees, additional costs and deadlines for applications and other materials vary by category. Please read the details carefully.

2. Read the Sponsorship Policies carefully. Submitting an application means you have read and agree to conform to the policies.

3.Think green! Please make your sponsorships as earth-friendly as possible. We are working on arrangements for donating extra food to a local hunger-fighting organization.

4. Save 20 percent by applying early. The early-bird deadline is July 15th. Final deadline is August 31st.

5. Members are asked to refrain from holding private events that would conflict with or overlap official conference activities. Your co-operation is appreciated. Please check the conference agenda or contact IFEC with questions about event times.

Why be a sponsor?

1) Sponsorships at the conference are cost-effective ways to inform and educate the foodservice editorial community.

2) They bring your brand to life for the editors and keep your message on their radar.

3) They spark partnerships among publicists (think chain promotions, editorial pitches, shared photography, recipe development).

4) And not incidentally, they help underwrite IFEC programming. One sponsor put it best: "Without them, IFEC would not be IFEC."
