Sponsorship

The Governor’s Conference is the annual gathering of Montana’s tourism and recreation industry. As a sponsor or exhibitor, you’ll connect with hundreds of attendees who drive one of the state’s leading industries. These opportunities will help you bring messages, products, and/or services to the right audience.

There are a limited number of  SPONSORSHIP opportunities available and are offered first come, first serve. This is a premier event that maximizes exposure and promotional networking budget. Where else can you meet in person with Montana's tourism professionals in one place over the course of two days! Let us customize your 2019 conference sponsorship as there is something for every level of investment.

Sponsoring the Governor’s Conference positions you as a leader, raises awareness of your messages, products, and/or services, and builds relationships with potential and existing partners while demonstrating support for Montana’s tourism and recreation industry.
