Sponsorship



NYSWA Annual Event Sponsorships

NYSWA places a high value on the relationship we have with our sponsors and works hard to ensure that value is delivered. That is why, after collaborating with our sponsors and soliciting feedback in 2015, NYSWA is offering new sponsorship opportunities for 2016. NYSWA hosts the following events each year – with the exception of the Wireless Forum every other year. The next Wireless Forum will be in 2017 but we are already planning for it. So stay tuned for updates and opportunities. Each event that NYSWA hosts offers sponsorships of all levels and costs. The 2015 Event Sponsorships can be found below as examples of the type of sponsorships you can expect at our regular events. Please note that sponsorship types are subject to change on a per event basis.

  • Annual Charity Golf Tournament. This annual event is a lot of fun and well attended. Held at different courses each year in different locations around the state golfers enjoy themselves at a pre-Tee-Off Luncheon, 18-holes of golf on award winning courses and a post-golf social gathering and awards ceremony. Attendance depends upon course capacity. Click here for an example of the 2015 charity golf sponsorships.
  • Holiday Social in New York City at the Ukrainian Society on the Park Avenue. This annual fun filled event hosted in a crowd favorite location that is both beautify and well situated for enjoying New York City during the holidays both before and after the event. Together with fun entertainment and great food the typical capacity for this event is 250, however, we hear that we may be offered an opportunity to host upwards of 350 in 2016.

  • Wireless Forum (every other year – next Forum will be in 2017). Occurring on the odd-numbered years, the Wireless Forum is our signature event boasting educational panel, opportunities to exhibit your products and services along with great food and networking opportunities. Here is an example in the Wireless Forum guide from 2013 held at Pier 60 in NYC in 2014 and the Wireless Forum Sponsorships offered in 2015.
  • Network for the Network (N4N) Events. N4N events are casual get-togethers for industry colleagues at a local hot spot. N4N events are often arranged 1-3 months in advance and can also be arranged to “piggy-back” on another event. N4N events are a fun, low-key way to network. Prior to 2016, there have not been any sponsorships offered for NYSWA’s N4N events. However, NYSWA will now be offering an opportunity to member companies to host and sponsor N4N events. The details are below.
  • Educational & Strategic Advocacy and Outreach Events. NYSWA is always open to hosting an educational event that will accomplish the mission of moving wireless forward. Recent events have included a Long Island Forum, a Day at the Capitol and 5G Our Wireless Future at the Yale Club. Education, advocacy and outreach are at the core of NYSWA values and mission. If you are interested in sponsoring an educational event or advocacy outreach, please contact Esme Lombard, Vice President of NYSWA Communications.
