Exhibit or Sponsor at the MCF Annual Conference

Looking for more visibility for your services or programs? Reserve some “face time” at the MCF 2017 Annual Conference today!

We invite you to be a part of the Minnesota Council on Foundations’ 2017 Conference: Philanthropy in Action to be held January 19–20, 2017 at the Radisson Blu Downtown Minneapolis. We anticipate more than 200 grantmakers from across Minnesota and the region to attend this premier event. 

We have two great ways for your organization to participate:

  1. Become an exhibitor. We are excited to host our conference at the newly renovated Radisson Blu Minneapolis as the location allows for greater interaction between exhibitors and attendees.
  2. Become a sponsor. In addition to other great benefits, sponsor names and logos will appear throughout our marketing campaign of e-mail and surface correspondence reaching more than 2500+ foundation professionals, trustees and friends throughout Minnesota. At the conference, sponsors will receive visibility on signs and conference materials.

Attendees of the conference will include trustees and staff members of foundations, corporations and corporate giving programs, tribes, institutions, government or philanthropic entities that conduct grantmaking from across the state.

Marketing activities will reach all 1,700+ MCF individual members, including foundation staff and directors/trustees. Approximately 1,200 nonmember Minnesota foundations and corporate giving programs will also receive conference promotional materials inviting them to attend the statewide convening.

We encourage you to respond right away. Sponsorships and exhibit booths are awarded on a first-come, first-served and space-available basis. Sponsor applications are due by October 13, 2016, to take advantage of all possible visibility opportunities. Exhibitor applications are due by December 1, 2016.
