Become a Sponsor or Exhibitor

Every autumn, county officials from around the state gather at the Wisconsin Counties Association’s Annual Conference for educational opportunities and peer networking. The WCA Annual Conference, along with the WCA Exhibit Hall, serves as the largest gathering of county supervisors, county officials, and those directly and indirectly involved in county government. The event presents a unique marketing opportunity for you to meet and interact with county decision makers face-to-face.

Marketing Opportunities Include

Conference sponsorship packages at the Premier, Elite, Leader, Partner, and Friend levels. Packages include items such as exhibit booth space, special recognition, promotion at events and meals, and advertisements in conference and WCA publications.

Exhibit booth at the WCA Exhibit Hall. Deadline to reserve your booth is August 16, 2024.

 

No refunds will be considered for booth cancellations after August 16, 2024.

Conference Program Advertising

The conference program includes information about the conference including times, dates, and concurrent workshops, as well as county official contact information and vendors in attendance. The program is the attendee’s “guide” to our conference and exhibition. Tremendous conference-wide exposure will be gained by participating in the program and the number printed averages over 1,000 each year.
