Entrepreneurs looking for a centre stage business opportunity to engage an audience, tell their story, promote their brand and market their products and services are invited to sponsor a CAPS event.

More than just your Company name and logo in the CAPS newsletter, sponsorship includes dedicated commercial time with a captive audience of renowned professional speakers.  The speaking business is open – open to hearing how you can help them improve their businesses and make a difference in their professional lives.

“I sponsored a CAPS event and had an immediate registration to my event that lead to follow-up business a few months later. I got back my investment ten times! It was fun and a good ROI.”
Petra Mayer, Petra Mayer Consulting

“Sponsoring a CAPS event is absolutely worth it! In April 2018, I sponsored an event and met some amazing professional speakers. It’s now a few months later, and I am getting business from it. I was recommended to supply all the printing for the National Convention in Vancouver in December and was awarded the contract. I definitely recommend sponsoring a CAPS event.”
