Sponsorship opportunities

The 2017 Lean Transformation conference will be held at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center, October 17 - 18.

Results Washington, Office of the Governor, invites your organization to participate in the 6th annual Washington State Government Lean Transformation Conference. This event typically draws 2,000 attendees, including employees and leaders in state and local government, as well as private sector partners. It is an excellent opportunity to connect key decision makers with the valuable resources your organization provides.

Opportunities to Participate

Support from partners like you is critical to the success of this popular event focused on government innovation. Participation occurs in several ways. In addition to the table below with standard sponsorships, we also have a number of additional opportunities, such as renaming a room with your organization’s name during the event. Keep reading to find these additional opportunities.

Here are the standard sponsorship opportunities.

Sponsor Package Includes

  • Each 8-foot skirted table includes two chairs and a wastebasket. 
  • Name badges will be provided for up to six employees per organization. 
  • Power is included with each table. 
  • Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the facility.

Spaces include tables only. Piped and draped booth walls are not included.

Additional Tables
There will be a $50 charge per table for any extra tables you may need.

Additional Opportunities

Add onto your standard sponsorship by choosing one or more of the following opportunities. Most of the opportunities only require one sponsor, so you may want to register early.

Breakout Room      $1,500 or $3,000
When you sponsor a breakout room, the room gets renamed with your company name. Your logo will be proudly displayed on the outside of the room and on the draping behind the podium. You will have an additional dedicated table right outside your room to allow for a direct connection with attendees in between sessions. Plus, you can fill each chair inside the room with your swag (nominal value). The lower price sponsorship is for rooms that seat 140-300 and the higher price is for rooms that seat 300 or more.

Designated Wi-Fi for Sponsors      $1,000
Be a hero to your fellow sponsors by providing a sponsor wi-fi. The building’s current wi-fi is used by all of the attendees which slows down the connection for sponsors. This additional sponsor opportunity provides a designated connection just for sponsors. Your company name will be on the cards that will be handed out to sponsors with the wi-fi password. Your company name will also be mentioned in the program.

Photo Booth      $2,000
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.

Charging Stations      $1,500
Provide an invaluable customer service with this exclusive branding opportunity. Your company will provide a convenient area for attendees to re-charge cell phones, tablets, computers, etc. Your company logo will be clearly visible on the charging kiosk throughout the duration of the event.

Additional Advertising Opportunities
Advertising space is available in the program at the following rates:
Half page (3.75 x 5)     $150
Full page (8 x 5)           $200
