Western United Dairymen 2016 Convention
Sponsorship & Exhibitor Changes
We’re excited to announce some major changes coming to this year’s convention! In lieu of a traditional “trade show,” exhibitors are invited to participate as sponsors via direct attendance at WUD’s Convention activities as well as through a virtual trade show. WUD has initiated new levels of industry and business sponsorships through its Allied Business Membership program. This is an annual membership to the organization and includes the same level of advocacy and involvement our dairymen receive. The Gold Level Membership, which includes full sponsorship to the convention, is $5000. Membership at the Gold Level will also include sponsorship of all Western events, winter district meetings, and safety trainings. All past exhibitors and sponsors of this great gathering of dairy farming interests are invited and encouraged to participate.
There will not be a formal trade show with different exhibitor levels for 2016’s convention. WUD has created a virtual trade show to allow companies more time to interact with dairy producers (one of the top requests of past exhibitors). By eliminating the need for exhibitors to remain at a booth throughout the entire convention, virtual exhibitors may now move about the event—or remain by their exhibit—at their convenience.
Allied Business Membership – Gold $5,000 Level
