Tradeshow and Exhibit Opportunities
If you are looking for innovative ways to create awareness and visibility for your company, sponsorships are a great way to promote your brand! We offer many opportunities for sponsorships and exhibiting throughout the year. A sponsorship or exhibiting opportunity gives your company an edge over your competition as you will have the attention of a variety of members from the Florida College System. This exposure and association with AFC will increase our members' awareness of your business and in turn, increase your business opportunities throughout the state. Some of the perks of being a sponsor or exhibitor include complimentary registrations, advertisement spots on our website and in our publications, program listings, signage, verbal recognition and more.
