Registering as an Exhibitor as well as a Sponsor at the VASS Spring Conference is something that many businesses choose to do. Exhibition Booths, which are placed prominently in the central lobby and in the conference space where all sessions are held, provides effective “branding” for your product as well as a “home base” for your representatives.
If you choose to be BOTH an Exhibitor AND a Sponsor of a speaker or event at the 2017 Spring Conference, the total fee is only $3,750 . . . . a savings of $750, and your BENEFITS are DOUBLED! 


Your Sponsorship Fee includes two complimentary registrations for Representatives of your company to attend the Spring Conference. 

Sponsor Representatives are encouraged to participate (at no additional cost) in all meals, receptions, conference sessions, and activities, since these events will provide excellent opportunities for networking with superintendents and other conference attendees.

The following benefits for two Representatives are INCLUDED in the $2,500 Sponsor Fee:

  • Breakfast buffets on Monday and Tuesday
  • Evening activities on Sunday and Monday
  • Luncheon Buffet on Monday and Awards Banquet on Tuesday
  • Participation in all conference presentations, break-out sessions, and other optional activities (with the exception of a fee for Business Representatives who wish to participate in the Sunday Golf Tournament)  

If you wish to have more than two representatives attend the conference, you are welcome to do so. Each additional representative will be charged the $600 business representative registration fee. 

Once you have registered your Business and selected the level of involvement for your participation in the VASS Spring Conference, you are asked to register EACH of the representatives of your business who will attend the Spring Conference.  The number of representatives whose registration fees will be complimentary are identified on the registration form.
