☐ Prepare For the Party
Sponsors attending the annual NW/MET conference have always been very generous. They frequently bring with them prizes to be given away to attendees. In a repeat of 2017, the NW/MET 2018 Conference will be holding an auction where attendees will be able to bid with their MET Money. Sponsors are welcome to contribute prizes to the auction. The sponsors will be able to display the prize in their booth prior to the event, and their name and brand will accompany the prize during the auction. Sponsors have no obligation to bring a prize, but if you’re interested in participating, here are just a few suggestions.
