Special Event Vendor Sponsors

At our CCIA monthly meetings we typically attract an audience of 100-150 people.. It's a great opportunity for business to position their products and services to an audience made up entirely of people interested in Real Estate Investing, Rehabbing and Landlording.  Additionally, we often host other events where we look for vendor sponsors.

 Main Meeting Exhibitor Tables

CCIA's Vendor Area is in the main lobby when you enter the conference hall.  Meeting vendors have the opportunity showcase their products and services and have direct face time with our members.

  • Vendors that arrive and set up on time (5:00-5:15pm) can catch the crowd as they enter the hall.  Even though  the first part of our CCIA meeting starts at 5:30pm, many people choose to stay out in the lobby to network and talk with our vendors
  • The next opportunity to catch the crown is during the break between sessions.  Roughly this is anywhere from 15-20 minutes around 6:45pm.  This is when the activity really heats up!  Some vendors choose to leave after everyone goes back into the main meeting room around 7:10pm.  Others stay till the end.
  • Vendors that stay till the very end (anywhere from 8:45-9:30) have the opportunity to talk to people one last time as they exit the hall.  Not everyone is in a hurry to leave.  Some stick around networking in the lobby until we shut the lights off at 10pm!

Occasionally CCIA will sponsor special events where we have the opportunity for a Vendor Expo.  When that happens, we will contact our regular vendors directly to make them aware of the opportunity.  Prices vary for these events.

Additionally, when we hold some All Day Workshops, we will look for a meeting vendor to sponsor the coffee service or a cookie break.  Again, prices vary based on the location of the event.

If you're interested in sponsoring an event, please contact us directly at: 630-858-4663
