New Annual & Conference Sponsorship Program

Welcome to the revised APA Florida Annual and Conference Sponsorship Program. For 2024, we are thrilled to announce that the program has been updated with opportunities for all organization sizes and budgets.

One of the biggest changes to note is that we now have four options available at the annual sponsorship level with yearlong event exclusive options. Through one of these levels, you will support planners and planning in Florida while elevating your organization’s visibility.

While several benefits have been added and others updated, the same conference level sponsorship and vendor and booth opportunities are also still available that will place your brand in front of a captive audience.

This new sponsorship guide is sure to have something for all tastes and we are excited for you to take a look!

Please contact us if you have any questions.
