Virtual Conference Corporate Partnerships Overview

We invite organizations to join us for a reimagined corporate partnership experience.

Crossover corporate partners will enjoy exposure, advertising, and attendee connection opportunities relevant to the virtual atmosphere. Maintain or build your organization’s presence, credibility, branding, and product/company updates with a creative suite of value-adding opportunities.

The Technology Crossover Extravaganza 2021 will not feature a virtual exhibit hall or virtual booths. 

Instead, choose between packaged partnerships and/or a la carte opportunities that can include:

  • Conference content contributions, including on-demand video, live panel seats, or event hosted virtual programming
  • Multi-channel advertising, including traditional ad placements and video commercials
  • Multi-channel logo exposure
  • Directory listings
  • Event registrations
  • Attendee registration lists
  • And more!
