Why Sponsor VIBE?
Meet & Education Top Decision Makers in the Industry
Now in its 7th year, VIBE has become known as the industry’s best quality conference for attracting the top chain buyers and beverage decision-makers from across the country. The topic at VIBE is Beverage, from start to finish! In our information rich environment, attendees find a program of general sessions and interactive workshops with new ideas, on-target facts & original research, and tasting opportunities.
Time to Connect
The VIBE Conference pre-function area outside of the Grande Ballroom is a buzz of activity both days, with alcohol free refreshments, conversational seating and small tables so you can conveniently schedule informal meetings with operators, internet access, and a great way to connect with others.
Showcase Your Products
Beverage trends and innovations are brought to life for attendees by incorporating sponsors’ products and ideas into tasting opportunities showcasing the latest flavors and beverage ideas. Both evenings, in different formats and with different drink ideas, attendees experience on-trend/on-target beers, wines, cocktails, and specialty drinks, many of which are created and served by award-winning Celebrity Mixologists. Early evening events allow for sponsors to have smaller group entertaining time for more one-on-one discussions with key buyers.
Opportunities that Fit Your Size + Budget
VIBE has four Sponsorship categories so your company is offered a perfect fit for your size and budget. Categories are: Pinnacle Sponsor, Emerald Sponsor, Sapphire Sponsor, and Ruby Sponsorship. Category qualification is dependent on the size of the company and product line as pre-determined by the conference.
Added Showcase Opportunities
- NEW for 2017: VIBE On-Demand Conference Video Recordings! Extend your reach post-show with logo recognition included in Workshop video recordings that will be accessed to Operators for months to come!
- VIBE Vista Operator Award Sponsorship—enables the category sponsor to have their name on the award and to personally present that award to the winning chain’s recipients on-stage at the conference general session.
- Cameo Beverage Showcase—for VIBE’s Opening Cocktail Extravaganza each year, there is a limited opportunity for non-competing sponsors to partner up at a Cameo Bar with a Celebrity Bartender and showcase 2 additional cocktails made with your product. They attract a lot of attention. Opportunities are limited.
