The deadline for receiving advertising artwork has passed and we can no longer accept any new paid advertising for 2013. Thank you to all who purchased advertising in our 2013 FARM Conference Program. Your support is appreciated and helps make the conference just a little bit better. Thank you.
Our FARM Gathering Program is a professionally designed 8.5 x 11 booklet. The front and back covers are in color, however, advertising is only available in black and white or grey scale at this time. These programs are a great resource, typically kept from year to year. In addition to the full conference schedule, they contain showcase artist photos/bios, award recipient tributes and most importantly, attendee contact information.
Your advertisement will be seen by attendees of the conference as well as non-attending sponsors and other interested parties. The potential exposure is several hundred music professionals and the cost is incredibly affordable.
Additionally, we provide all of our attendees with our eco-friendly tote bag. For only $75 we’ll include your swag in all bags. Because we are making an effort to be ecologically conscious we ask that you think ‘green’ with your swag as well. Stickers, pens, key chains work great! Postcards and flyers are fine, but keep in mind that these items can be put on our display tables for no charge.
We do not currently offer ad space on our website, however we do offer logo links to most levels of FARM Sponsors. For more information visit our Sponsorship page.
