Benefit/Event Sponsorship allows the Vendor to show their support of the Conference and the APP through sponsorship of events/benefits found at the Conference. Most event sponsorships are available to multiple parties. The APP added two new EXCLUSIVE sponsorships in 2013, and we've brought them back for 2014. As always no benefits will be provided until sponsorships are paid in full. Vendors receive the following for their support: $1,500.00: The Banquet Dinner Sponsor(s) receive full page ad in the program, the ability to place a banner* at the event and in the Expo hall; 4 tickets to the Banquet, and first choice of booth location, in order received. $1,500.00: The Attendee Lounge - Exclusive Sponsorship Sponsor receives promotion of the lounge as The [Vendor Name] Lounge; Sponsor can schedule one event during the week at the lounge – which will be promoted by APP in Conference materials (deadline must be met); Sponsor can place banners*, carpet cling, and vendor materials in the lounge area. $1,000.00: The Opening Party Sponsor(s) receive a ½ page ad in the program, the ability to place a banner* at the event and in the Expo Hall; and second choice of booth location, in order received. $1,000.00: The Volunteer Dinner – Exclusive Sponsorship Sponsor receives 2nd choice of booth location, in order received (along with opening party sponsors); Sponsor is promoted in APP materials for sponsoring this key volunteer event $500.00: Exposition Food & Beverage Sponsor(s) receive a quarter page ad in the program, the ability to place a banner* in the Expo Hall, and third choice of booth location, in order received. $300.00: Al D.

*All banners MUST be designed to be free standing, floor based. Banners will be placed at the sponsored event; and in another prominent location at the Conference (when the event is not being held). Exhibitors are responsible to make sure their banners stand easily, without additional support, hardware, etc. No banners will be accepted which do not meet these requirements.
Advertisement provides a visual reminder of your presence at the Conference, and can be used as a reference for attendees after the show. Vendors are encouraged to advertise both in the Conference Point Journal and the Conference Program. Details will be in your orientation packet from the APP.

Raffle Donation shows you care. The Raffle is the APP’s second biggest financial support after Conference class sales. Crucial to our annual budget, and the best gamble in Vegas – attendees buy 1000’s of raffle tickets because of our Vendors’ generous donations. Promote your Company’s support of the industry and the Association by supporting this event! Vendors who contribute to the raffle at the required amount receive $50.00 off each booth they purchase.
Launched in 2009, the Innovators Award proved to be a welcomed addition to the APP Exposition.Innovators Award program is a chance for Vendors and Attendee’s alike to showcase new and innovative designs they want to promote at the show – test at the show – or gain recognition for from the people in our Industry. Whether it is a single item showpiece, an introduction to a new line, or a new idea an amateur jeweler has developed – we welcome your submissions! If the submission comes from someone other than a (paid) full conference pass Attendee, or a Vendor (with a booth on the floor) – there is a submission fee of $300.00. The vendor or attendee who wins an Innovator of the Year award, in addition to the formal recognition of their contribution will be given an interview in the Point.Each Vendor/Attendee is allowed one entry into each of the two categories: Technical Innovation & Creative Innovation. Vendors/Attendees will need to fill out a descriptive form. Submission of this form will be the confirmation of the vendor’s participation. The confirmation must be received by May 21st with no exceptions. This form will include creator’s name; whether it is submitted as a technical or creative innovation; materials used; name of design, piece, or product. Vendors/Attendees will need to bring their items to the APP Raffle/Auction Booth – before the floor opens on Tues June 10th. It is not the responsibility of the APP to collect the item from the Vendor/Attendee.Award Ballots will be issued at the time of registration with each individual badge. Voting will be allowed by anyone who is issued a badge. A ballot box will be located by the display and the ballots tallied at 3pm on Thursday; the winner(s) will be announced at the Banquet Dinner.
