Big value promotion campaigns

These events come with big value promotion campaigns, with a small cost to you. As a sponsor, your brand will be associated with a high power promotional campaign designed to drive awareness and attendance of every event.  From the very first impression delivered, to the final guest leaving your event, your brand will be front and center as a premiere event sponsor.

In-Person or Virtual Events

Our calendar of events is a mix of in-person and virtual events designed to engage key markets and provide information in need to our community, regardless of format.  Virtual events provide the flexibility and scale to draw a wide audience with minimal expense.  In-person events have the power to engage audiences with face-to-face discussion and connection.  The access to leading virtual event technology and innovative event space throughout our community provides the Advance Media New York event marketing team with the flexibility to create a virtual or live event, that connects the best audience with the most relevant information, despite the format.
