“Add-on” Sponsorship Opportunities

Add to your standard sponsorship by choosing one or more of the following opportunities. Most of the opportunities only allow one sponsor, so you may want to register early. All “add-on” sponsors will be mentioned in the program.

Photo Booth        $1,500 per day / $3,000 for both days
This fun opportunity places your company name and logo in every picture taken at the social media photo booth. The “step and repeat” banner will have your logo along with the Lean Transformation logo. Your company name will also be mentioned in the booth and the program.

Motor Coach       $2,000 per coach or $5,500 for all three coaches
To improve the parking experience for our attendees this year, we are providing three motor coaches to transport people from the Tacoma Dome to the Tacoma Convention Center. As a sponsor of this convenient service, your company advertisement with your name and logo will be placed on the inside of coaches for riders to see AND on the outside of the coaches for the public and commuters to see. You may sponsor one coach for $2,000 or all three for $5,500 (a $500 savings).
