Sponsorship Opportunties for Board Sport Companies at the Second Annual BRA Conference

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR BOARD SPORT COMPANIES AT THE 2ND ANNUAL BRA RETAIL CONFERENCE IN SAN JOSE DEL CABO, MAY 12-15, 2005.

Wrightsville Beach, NC (March 8, 2005) – Board sport companies have a unique opportunity to reach independent retailers from across the US as they gather for the 2nd Annual Board Retailers Association Retail Summit in San Jose Del Cabo, May 12-15, 2005. The conference is held by the Board Retailers Association and TransWorld Media and coincides with the SIMA Surf Summit.  Companies in the board sports industry are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to target top surf, skate and snowboard retailers.    

A wide range of opportunities is available, from sponsoring speakers to practical gifts to outrageous gags.  There's a sponsorship opportunity to fit any company and any budget.  In addition to the items listed below there is a special sponsorship available for companies to show their commitment to supporting independent retailers. 
 
"Sponsor-a-Retailer" is available for $1,200 and is less than what many organizations might spend on a tradeshow dinner.  The sponsorship will help defray the cost of attending the retail conference for a small, core retailer.
 
Contact Ashlee Diehl to secure your sponsorship before it's gone! Call 910-509-0109
