Monthly Sponsorship Opportunities

Dear Travel Colleague:

We have a proven forum for you to get your sales message across to a large number of qualified travel agents. It is an extremely cost effective presentation format to deliver your sales message using the communication of your choice. It is a lower cost than conducting and producing your own seminars. We search strategic meeting sites, produce invitations, select the menu and take all the RSVP’S. We will also assist you at the presentation by collecting business cards from all attendees as part of your sales solicitation follow up.

Furthermore, your sponsorship provides you with a one year annual membership in the Eastern Travel Association (ETA). To complete the packaged program we will provide staff if necessary to help you set up on the day of your presentation.

It is our distinct pleasure to invite you to participate by being a sponsor. We are continuing with our dinner forum meetings to be held on the third full week of the month as follows:

  • Monday – Harrisburg – Central Pennsylvania Area
  • Tuesday – Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Area
  • Wednesday – Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton Area

As a sponsor, you will attend all three area forums and have the opportunity to do the following:

  1. Before dinner you may conduct a meet and greet. This time is designated to mingle with our travel agent members.
  2. Immediately following dinner or during dessert, you may conduct a one-hour in depth sales presentation promoting your company.
  3. You will receive publicity in our monthly newsletter email “blasts” and our Facebook Page. Our emil newsletter goes out to both member and non-member ETA agents (over 600). In addition, your website address will be featured in our newsletter along with photos and verbiage of your choosing.

The total sponsorship of $1,800 includes the costs of receptions and dinner for all three nights for up to 100 attending members ($20 for each additional attendee over 100). Sponsorships may be shared among suppliers with like interests or destinations or of your choosing. We will bill each sponsor for the deposit and for any additional fees. Please note if this is a joint commitment and should one sponsor drop out, the other is responsible for the full share of that month’s fees. Due to time constraints for the meeting more than two co-sponsors is discouraged.

Door prizes are welcomed and will be mentioned in the newsletter to help maximize attendance. “Only ETA members will be eligible for prizes except when sponsor indicates otherwise.”

Because of this proven forum, we often have a great demand for our meetings. In fairness to all of our suppliers, monthly meetings are reserved on first come, first served basis. Your month is secured by contract and payment of the fee.

Thank you for your continued support of ETA…it is sincerely appreciated.
