Advertising with the Filipino Intercollegiate Networking Dialogue (FIND) and the Harvard Philippine Forum (HPF) is a very effective way to reach the Harvard Community as well as students on campuses all over the country. The annual FIND Conference has been a high-exposure event in the collegiate Filipino community. Last year's conference at George Washington University in Washington DC, for example, drew approximately 1,200 college students from as far as California and other Western states. This year, in an attempt to make the Conference gibber and better, FIND is working on attracting even more students to the Conference, and it is also working on bringing speakers directly from the Philippines!
As this year's Conference will be held at Harvard University, all events will be free to all Harvard students and faculty. It will surely raise awareness of Filipino and Filipino American related themes and issues within the historic college, which boasts more than 18,000 degree candidates, including undergraduates and students in 10 graduate professional schools. Publicity in the weeks before the Conference will be intense, with thousands of programs, posters, and fliers to be distributed to college campuses in the Boston area, the Boston community at large, and many other schools nationwide that are part of FIND.
While FIND is expecting to attract more than 1,200
students to Harvard this year (the number of participants grows each year),
the exposure to students at Harvard and other Boston colleges will actually
be much wider. The figure will account only for the registrants from
the many participating colleges who register by the beginning of Conference
weekend. Furthermore, before the Conference, we will be sending out
promotional packages to colleges across the nation. A special committee
has already been created to establish intercollegiate ties and publicity;
our Public and Intercollegiate Relations Committee has already initiated
and will continue to establish contact with many other colleges around
the country in order to further publicize our Conference. Brochures,
pamphlets, and other registration materials will be distributed free of
charge to all these colleges, so your company will receive exposure to
campuses across the nation.
WHAT WE OFFER:
The Conference Program
The program is the main piece of literature at the Conference. It is a handbook that details speakers, panels, workshops, and other events spanning the three-day weekend. The program is indispensable not only for its schedule of events, but also for the many links that it provides to different companies and organizations within the United States. Since the FIND Conference is about networking, you as a sponsor will definitely reach many individuals and groups. In addition, you will receive the ad size and location specified by your sponsorship category. Finally, your corporation will be recognized for your level of support in a page dedicated to our sponsors. For example, if you choose the first option, your company name will be listed under the heading, "Platinum Circle Corporate Sponsors" at the top of the page.
T-shirts will be sold before the Conference as part of an extensive pre Conference publicity campaign. These shirts will also be sold during the Conference to registrants visiting from across the country and afterwards to the rest of the Harvard community. Our Conference T-shirts will provide you with a marketing instrument that will continue to generate publicity nationally in the long run. As students and tourists, our registrants will be eager to bring back a piece of Harvard and their Conference experience, and our T-shirt will bring both of these elements together in one neat and practical package. Platinum Circle Corporate Sponsors will be recognized for their high level of support by having both their company name and logo corporate sponsors will have only their company names listed on the back under their particular sponsorship category.
Promotional inserts will be included in registrants' Conference packets. We will insert any materials promoting your company that you provide.
