Wi-Fi / Mobile App

$12,000 Exclusive Non-Member
$10,000 Exclusive Member

Two great exclusive sponsorships in one.  Sales and Marketing folks are used to using technology and appreciate when they can just simply connect at a conference.  Be the hero and have all attendees associate your company with this important convenience item. 

Your logo/message will appear on the login screen as well as on our conference app, event signage, and official program guide.  And while they are connecting to the internet, they will need to use the official Mobile App.  The IFDA Mobile App contains a wealth of information.  Sessions, Speakers, Downloadable Presentations, Networking and Social Media, Floor Plans, etc.  As a sponsor your logo/message will appear on the splash screen every time someone opens the App. The App does not close after the event so attendees will continue to see your message whenever they refer back to the conference.
