Sponsorship Info

Being a Metro Fire Chiefs Conference sponsor not only demonstrates your organization’s presence in the fire service profession, it also gives your brand optimal visibility to the attendees, who are the leaders within their respective fire departments and would viably benefit from your products and/or services.

  • There are multiple packages available at different levels of sponsorship funding. Each package has specific benefits listed. See the description of each sponsorship package for more details.
  • Each sponsorship allows a given number of attendees per the level of sponsorship to attend the open speaker sessions and social functions. Spouses and partners are included in the total count.
  • Pooling Contributions—If multiple sponsors join together to achieve a specific level of sponsorship, the individual sponsors will be listed according to their sponsorship level. For example, if two sponsors contribute $10,000 each to sponsor a Diamond-level event, both sponsors will be recognized and listed as Gold Sponsors. Using this same example, if these two contributing Gold Sponsors prefer using a single-sponsor name, then that sponsor only would be listed as a Diamond Sponsor and the other sponsor’s name would not be listed.
  • Request for Specific Events—A representative from the host conference committee will work with sponsors to identify assigned events. If the cost of the assigned event exceeds the agreed upon sponsorship level, the sponsor will be contacted and offered the opportunity to increase the contribution to the level necessary to retain sole sponsorship of the desired event.
  • Social and Partner Events—All events have a maximum limit of attendees. Be sure to register as soon as you can in order to secure the wanted spots for your company.
