SPONSORSHIP & MARKETING OPPORTUNITIES
Increase your exposure at The Quality Show by becoming a sponsor or take advantage of the many marketing opportunities that will give your company significant presence to a targeted audience of quality engineers and manufacturing professionals.
PRESS & MEDIA EXPOSURE
One of the top five reasons exhibitors participate in a trade show is to gain exposure through media coverage. BNP Media has teamed up with Riemer Communications to provide exhibitors a cost effective way to communicate messages about their new products and services to editors, reporters and bloggers that have been invited as well as those that have registered for the Show. News stories that come out of a trade show can make a company's entire year. For a new company or product, it can put them on the road to success.
The Quality Show offers exhibitors several effective (and FREE!) ways to help get your company & brand out to the media.
- Post Your Company Press Releases on Event Website –
The Quality Show will post your company press release to the Press section on the event website (no charge). We invite you to submit your press release concerning new product announcements, important company news or any features regarding your show participation.
- Share Your News with the Invited & Registered Press –
BNP Media has several publications under the Manufacturing sector. We are also very lucky to have a great relationship with ASQ Inspection Division, Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS), Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and other media outlets. Many of them are working on their pre-show issues and planning show coverage, we recommend you connect with the editors with your press material and also invite them to visit your booth at the Summit.
- Drop off Media Kits in the On-site Press Office –
We encourage exhibitors to bring display company information in the Press Room for media access. Up to 25 press kits may be dropped off in the Press Room on-site. We suggest you have copies on hand in your booth as well in case a reporter stops by. The press room will be open to working members of the editorial press. Have an interview scheduled? You are welcome to use the press room for those meetings.
