Closing Reception (held in Exhibit Hall) — $30,000

New acquaintances and old friends will gather in our fabulous Exhibit Hall to relax, unwind, and bid farewell. Hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be served, and prominent signage will be displayed at this event. The emcee will provide an announcement of your company's sponsorship, and a representative from your company is welcome to make brief closing remarks.

Poster Session Reception (held in Condesa Commons) — $25,000

Digital Art Gallery (located in Mont-Royal Commons) — $50,000

Step and Repeat — $2,500

Here's a NEW idea for promotional support at PAINWeek: Your corporate/brand logo on the step and repeat banner backdrop at the Corporate Photobooth complete with red carpet.

You have seen them many times at award shows, movie premieres, and press events, but probably didn't know what it was called. A step and repeat banner is a backdrop that displays your logo in a diagonal, repeated pattern. The purpose is to publicize your organization at each of the many photo opportunities and interviews that occur during the course of the PAINWeek conference.

PAINWeek will also supply a photographer. Attendees may take their own photos. iPads will be available for attendees to post photos to social media accounts.

The cost is just $2500 to have your logo included and is strictly limited to 3 sponsors ensuring you a full exposure during the conference. To view a sample of a Step and Repeat, click here.

Photo Booth — $2,500

Social Media Wall (outside Exhibit Hall) — $5,000


Cyber Kiosks (n=8) — $30,000

Help delegates keep in touch with their office, check email, do a little web surfing, check-in for flights, and print boarding passes. Home pages will be programmed to default to sponsor's company website or sponsor may provide company or product branded screen saver or splash page for Cyber Kiosk terminals. Cyber Kiosk signage is strategically located inside the Exhibit Hall for maximum exposure and traffic. 

Program Guide (sole sponsorship) — $35,000

This is the primary onsite reference guide for PAINWeek attendees. It includes the session schedule, session descriptions, faculty information, exhibit floor listings, and other conference-related materials. As the sole sponsor of the Program Guide you will receive an acknowledgement and logo on the cover and the premium inside front cover (4-page spread) for advertising insertions. Please note that the single sponsor will be the only company that is permitted to advertise a product in the Program Guide; ads must be preapproved by PAINWeek. Single-page ads for satellite events presented during PAINWeek and their respective corporate supporters will be listed.

Charging Station — $12,500

Tote Bags — $12,000

Attractive, high-quality tote bags will be provided to all delegates at registration. The bag will display your corporate logo prominently and the PAINWeek logo. Have attendees remember your support long after the conference concludes.

Name Badge Lanyards — $7,500

Have delegates wear your logo around their necks all day long, as name badges are required at all events. Even better, a lanyard can double as an eyeglass holder long after the meeting is over. Company logo will be printed on a nylon lanyard.

Premier Sponsorship Opps

Change the 80/20 Rule!

80% of PAINWeek attendees receive ongoing communications from only 20% of our sponsors!

These practitioners are leading the effort to provide better pain care to patients and to serve as "go to" resources for expertise in their practices. They return every year, and in greater numbers, to expand their skills and exchange ideas, making PAINWeek the largest US conference on pain for frontline practitioners.

Why not start the conversation before September with a host of preconference communications?

Put your organization at the forefront as a PAINWeek premier sponsor. Opportunities for specific sponsorship are limited and provide you with exclusive promotion to our highly relevant audience, as well as visibility in the daily, pre-, and post-conference publications.
