We are planning for standing room only at the event. Vendor tables, program book advertisements, and corporate sponsorships are available. Please share this opportunity with anyone you know that may be interested or email us the leads.

This event will be highly promoted to the communities where our District is represented. We will be specifically targeting event planners, non-profit and community associations event chairs, corporation HR representatives, millennials, mid-career professionals, and others who might be interested in using our speakers or becoming a member of Toastmasters.

We will feature ten of our best Speakers Bureau speakers in a TED Talk-like event. They will be presenting for 15 minutes.
