    2017 MD SHRM State Conference Sponsorship Information

    Dear Potential Sponsor / Exhibitor:

    We are very excited to be announcing The 2017 Maryland SHRM State Conference, which is an ideal marketing opportunity to reach many of the Mid-Atlantic Region’s human resource professionals.  This year’s conference theme is Surviving the Storm: Navigating in a Sea of HR Change. We want to thank all of our past and future sponsors for your continued support, which allows us to deliver highly successful and innovative programming at the Maryland SHRM State Conference. The 2017 conference will be held again at the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel in Ocean City, Maryland. The conference will be October 15th–17th and we are expecting more than 300 participants.  The conference is a great value to human resource professionals from Maryland and beyond!

    We invite your organization to join us as a Sponsor and/or Exhibitor of this event.  The Sponsorship opportunities available this year provide a wide range of access to the region’s top HR professionals.  As a “PARTNER,” your donation and support of this event will allow us to provide the quality programs to attendees.  There are three (3) distinct levels of sponsorship.  Each level has been carefully considered to meet the budgetary constraints of the diverse partners we serve.  Sponsorships are offered on a first -come, first-served basis.  We also welcome donations other than financial such as a gift of your service or product to award as a door prize to our attendees.

    Details regarding the 2017 Maryland SHRM State Conference are attached.  The Exhibit Hall will be open Sunday evening from 5pm –7pm and Monday from 7am –5pm.  Don’t miss your opportunity to build name recognition, establish future customers, meet face-to-face with key decision makers, network with hundreds of HR professionals, reach your target audience, and strengthen relationships with current customers.

    We look forward to your participation in the 2017 MD SHRM State Conference.  For additional information, please visit our conference website at http://md.shrm.org/maryland-state-conference
