2021 Virtual Conference Sponsorship
The GAOI is selling Sponsorships for March’s online virtual conference, and an in-person conference planned in Peoria in October. The combination sponsorship is for BOTH 2021 events.
The March virtual conference will be held afternoons in mid-March, from March 8-19, 2021. There will a minimum of 16 virtual one-hour training sessions on eight afternoons during this time frame. These sessions will be very similar to the training sessions provided during the traditional IL Geothermal Conference in March the past 10 years. Because of the pandemic and social distancing regulations in Illinois this year, the spring conference will be held virtually online.
In addition, GAOI is planning a more conventional in-person conference event, to be held in East Peoria at Par-A-Dice Hotel and Conference Center, this fall. This event will be held in late October 2021.
Sponsorship levels are VERY SIMILAR to those of past years – but sponsors will be supporting TWO events in 2021. Here are the levels:
Platinum and Gold sponsors will also get an exhibit space at no charge for the October event in East Peoria. There will be a casual, scaled-down vendor exhibit area at this fall event. Platinum and Gold sponsors will also host the eight different training sessions/dates to be held virtually in mid-March. The exact dates/times for the virtual trainings TBA, but we’re planning on afternoon sessions M-TH during the two weeks, likely starting at 230 or 3 pm, and wrapping up about 5 pm. Sponsor hosts will welcome virtual participants and have 10-15 minutes at these sessions (one different sponsor for each individual session).
