2018 Conference Sponsor Opportunities
Share |

 

On behalf of the American Massage Therapy Association – Washington Chapter, we invite you to be part of the 2018 Washington Educational Conference. Your valued partnership allows us to continue to offer quality educational opportunities to our professional members so they can continue to learn and grow. We hope you will join us September 14, 15, 16, 2018 at the Shilo Inn and Convention Center in Ocean Shores, WA!


As the coordinators, we are pleased to invite you to be a part of this exciting event. This is a conference specifically geared to provide exceptional continuing education for northwest massage therapists, not just AMTA members, at an affordable price. Because of the reduced price and destination, we anticipate 400 to 450 massage therapists attending. Our theme this year is Pay It Forward.


We are excited to announce that we have secured some renowned teachers and excellent “in demand” workshops, such as; Essentials of Intraoral Massage by Lauren Christman & Richard Pollishuk, Muscle-Specific Deep Tissue Techniques for the Posterior, Lateral and Anterior Neck by Brian Utting, Business Ethics by Dawn Schmidt, Susan Salvo will be teaching on a number of topics such as Self-Care & Career Longevity for Massage Therapists, and Money Matters: The Financial Side of Bodywork Business and Massage & Pharmacology. We also have many other great workshops and teachers lined up making for a super educational conference!


We believe that excellence and balance are the keys to professional success and that, given these educational opportunities, massage therapists can dramatically increase their professional lifespan. We invite you to be part of this vision.


Our marketing will directly target roughly 16,000 massage therapists in Washington State. This will include a comprehensive and extensive campaign of direct print mail, web advertising and a direct email campaign to thousands.


The 2018 Washington Educational Conference is the premier event for the massage therapy industry and provides a valuable opportunity for suppliers, service providers and employers to be in front of this unique audience.


Please review the Sponsor Packet filled with many opportunities to get your company front and center with our attendees.


Don't miss this chance to capture your share of this market. Complete and return the application page to secure your sponsorship today!


Thank you,
Teri Hoskins
Event Planner & Sponsor Coordinator
