Vendor Participation: Sponsorship
Vendors participate in ACPE through conference sponsorship. Depending on the level of sponsorship, opportunities for exposure, recognition and discussion with attendees will vary. Conference sponsorship is intended to include related expenses, including food and beverages for hospitality, some lodging for vendor representative(s) and more. The number and reach of benefits vary by sponsorship level. Please see related Sponsor information as mentioned above.

The Sponsor information is compiled on several pages and should answer all of your questions

However, if you still have any questions just email jb@acpenw.org.

Before you do that, it is important that you and your organization understand all of the information we have posted. Signing up through our online form means you do. Again, if you have any question, please contact a Board member or JB (jb@acpenw.org) who can help you.

  • Gold - $3,300 
  • Platinum - $5,500 
  • Diamond - $11,000 
Non-Sponsor Vendor Participation:
It is possible for a vendor to attend ACPE as a registered participant. The conference fee for that option is $1,500.00 for each registration and includes all three days, activities, sessions and meals. A single day vendor registration is $750.00 and only available by emailing jb@acpenw.org and is based on space available for the day you select. Sponsorship is a far better value for vendors to consider.

Sponsorship Payments:
A 20% non-refundable deposit is required to secure your sponsorship. Sponsors are invoiced after they fill out the sign up form. The deposit is due when you received the first invoice. The remaining balance is due no later than March 31, 2014.

Sponsor showcase space selection begins the first week of April on a first come first served basis based on the date ACPE received your deposit and receipt of full payment by March 31st. Sponsors who have not paid in full by March 31, 2014 will not be able to select their space until the outstanding balance is paid.

ACPE prefers payments by check. Please mail all payments to:

PO Box 6053
Portland, OR 97228-6053

If you can only make payment by credit or debit card, contact JB Fitzpatrick via email, jb@acpenw.org for further instructions.

Additional Sponsor Attendees:

Additional Sponsor Attendees: 
It is possible, but limited, for Sponsors to bring additional people to the conference beyond those included in your sponsorship level. 

Each additional representative costs $500, a 66% discount from our regular pricing for vendors. This covers the entire event including all activities, sessions, food and beverages for three days.

A minimum of 20% of the sponsorship fee is required to reserve an ACPE sponsorship. If the vendor chooses to cancel prior to February 1, 20% of the total sponsorship fee shall be retained with the balance refunded to the vendor. 

There are no refunds for conference sponsorship after February 1st.
