The Presentation Guild was created to bring together people and entities that work in the world of presentations.
While presentations are largely placed within the various categories of graphics, training, multimedia and other industries, there are enough significant nuances and specific aims that relate only to presentations and nothing else. Until now, there has been no association, organization, or group that specifically addresses the needs of those who work with presentations.
This is the vacuum that the Presentation Guild fills. For sponsors, this ability to create a platform encompassing a presentation-specific audience is a huge advantage. You can directly message this industry without having to waste sponsorship dollars addressing a much larger, blurred audience.
We offer four sponsorship tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond. These annual sponsorships are open specifically to people, companies, and entities related to presenting. Note that you have the first right to renew at your sponsorship tier at the end of the year. You can also upgrade to a higher tier, subject to availability of tier slots. We will provide a limited number of memberships at each tier.
If you or your company are not part of the presentation industry but are still interested in supporting the Guild, we offer corporate memberships geared towards making your involvement more useful.
Four sponsorship tiers are open to the presentation industry. Sponsorship opportunities are limited and will be granted on a first-come basis.
This tier is limited to 8 sponsors. The Bronze sponsorship level offers you the following:

BADGE ON SPONSORS PAGE ON SITE: We will have a page similar to the Board of Directors page where all sponsors will be listed. Sponsor logos will be shown along with a 50- to 100-word description and one link to their site.
MAILER/NEWSLETTER OPPORTUNITIES: The Guild will send an electronic mailer / newsletter to its members at least once a month. As more content is created, and the need arises, this can be increased to once a week. Sponsors can sponsor a particular mailer issue. They will be identified as sponsoring the mailer, and may provide a small image ad with a hyperlink to their site. These ads will be clearly identified as a sponsor ad. Silver sponsors will receive this visibility once in a year, Gold sponsors will get this twice a year, and Diamond sponsors will receive this privilege thrice a year. In the case of Gold and Diamond sponsors, the mailers will be spaced out so as to not be repeated too soon.
WELCOME NOTE / OFFER IN WELCOME KIT: Silver and Gold tier sponsors can send a welcome note or offer limited to one page (US Letter or A4) as part of the Guild’s Welcome Kit. This Welcome Kit will be issued electronically on both joining and on renewal of membership.
MENTION ON HOME PAGE OF PRESENTATION GUILD SITE: Only Diamond sponsors will have their logos displayed on the home page.
