WHY SPONSOR CONFLUENCE?

Confluence provides a forum for technologists, innovators, and decision makers to connect. The Rome Floyd Chamber is a 501c6 not for profit organization and can continue to host this high quality event because of our community partners. Supporting Confluence is an excellent way for you to gain broad exposure in the northwest Georgia region or get involved where you already do business. As a sponsor, you will gain exposure to many key audiences. 

AUDIENCE

Our audience is intentionally diverse to encourage people from different backgrounds to learn from each others’ perspectives. The event seeks to bring together corporate “suits,” entrepreneurial “Frisbee throwers,” and technologist “geeks” in a way that encourages attendees to take action. Confluence draws entrepreneurs looking to capitalize on gaps, connect with potential customers, and get resources to bring an idea to market. 

The event attracts business executives, CEOs, CMOs, and strategic thinkers, many of whom oversee technologists. You will also see EVPs of international manufacturing companies and CIOs of regional banking operations, healthcare facilities, and educational institutions. These attendees desire to hear the latest trends and be exposed to new ideas across a variety of industries.

Confluence also attracts technologists who desire to discuss “nuts and bolts,” compare notes, talk about issues, and challenge the status quo. From the information sector, these attendees might include marketers, software engineers, designers, developers, IT, and IS backgrounds. From industry, these technologists might include engineering, R&D, industrial design, and product design and development minds. From healthcare, backgrounds might include health IT, clinical research, regulatory, and administration.

The event intentionally includes local high school and college students, both as presenters and as attendees. Professors, researchers, and student entrepreneurs attend. Given that “inspiration” is an overarching theme, Confluence seeks to inspire the next generation of innovators, technologists, and entrepreneurs.

TRACK RECORD

With all of the events going on in the Southeast, it is difficult to decide where to put your limited marketing dollars. You want to make the strategic choice. With a 16-year history, Confluence has a proven track record. The conference continues to grow year to year in attendance

If you are in the business of working with entrepreneurs and technologists, Confluence is the event to support. More than just a financial investment, we want you to be a long-term partner in promoting a culture of innovation in the region.
