ACHIEVE MULTIPLE OBJECTIVES

A high profile program can be custom-designed to meet your company's specific marketing objectives and goals by utilizing a mix of year-long benefits and marketing tools.

CORPORATE SPONSOR IMAGE AS SUPPORTER OF INGENUITY AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Sponsorships enable your company to project the positive image that you would expect of a corporate sponsorship, similar to the sponsorships that you would find at any major event ie. the Olympics. As a Sponsor of the Invention Convention® web sites, your company will be seen as a supporter of worldwide ingenuity, innovation and entrepreneurship while achieving image enhancement and name recognition.

ECONOMICALLY PRICED VEHICLES

Advertising & Sponsorship programs are economically priced to harmonize with any budget and are highly attractive marketing vehicles to simultaneously generate leads, recruit new clients and gain media and one-on-one exposure within the invention industry!

A complimentary brainstorming conference can be scheduled to assess and evaluate your company's marketing needs to see if there's a match, determine which vehicles would achieve your company's goals, and verify if your company meets our qualifications.

Please note that many of these programs are limited by their nature to a certain number of participants. Naturally, we reserve all rights to determine and accept or refuse which companies or organizations may participate in any programs.
