The California Chapter of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP®) is holding its 14th Annual Training Day on Friday, 3 November 2017 at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel in Anaheim, California.

Training Day speakers automatically receive free conference registration, breakfast and lunch. All other attendees, including speaker guests, have to pay the conference registration fee, unless the sponsorship opportunities (below) provide an additional free registration.

Giveaway/Raffle Item & Marketing Literature Opportunities

We are actively seeking event giveaway items…small items (pens, note pads, marketing materials, etc.) to be provided at registration; and especially nicer/special items (books, guides, nice marketing giveaway items) to raffle. If your consulting organization or employer is a provider of capture or proposal services or products, this would be an excellent way to advertise to California proposal professionals and we would very much appreciate your donation. We anticipate 60–70 attendees.

Speakers and sponsors are welcome to bring standard marketing brochures/flyers, which we can provide to all attendees (~ 60–70) when they register or place on the registration table (immediately outside the conference room)…space permitting. Normally, Disney has a few small wooden tables in the room (not guaranteed), one or two of which could be used for brochures.
