Advertisements

Sponsors’ advertisements will be featured at least once per month in FYI ASTA Weekly, which publishes four times per month. Advertisements will run for a three or six-month period (depending on sponsorship level). ASTA will work with you on the schedule for your advertisement. Advertisements are subject to review by ASTA to ensure they meet ASTA’s professional standards and the association’s policies.

Session Sponsors
The opportunity to sponsor a specific education or networking session is available on a first come, first served basis, and is limited to the total number of sessions available during ASTA Online. You will have the opportunity to have a company representative introduce your assigned session and to provide a giveaway to an attendee chosen at random (gift card, etc.). After your sponsorship agreement is received, ASTA staff will contact you to confirm logistics.

The mailing will be clearly labeled as sponsored content and is subject to review by ASTA to ensure that it meets ASTA’s professional standards and the association’s policies. A limited number of mailings are available prior to ASTA Online 2021, and some mailings may be sent after. Available options will be confirmed by ASTA.

Presentation During Quarterly Crop Report
The opportunity to sponsor one of the four quarterly crop report sessions is available on a first come, first served basis and is limited to four total sponsors (one per quarterly report). Your company presentation may be up to five minutes and will be pre-recorded then broadcast at the beginning of the crop report. The recording will be clearly labeled as sponsored content and is subject to review by ASTA to ensure that it meets ASTA’s professional standards and the association’s policies. Crop report recordings will be available to all ASTA members. After your sponsorship agreement is received, ASTA staff will contact you to confirm logistics.

Gift Box Giveaways
If five sponsor commitments are confirmed, ASTA will assemble and mail a gift box to event participants and include promotional items from sponsors. All sponsored promotional items must be approved by ASTA prior to shipment to the ASTA office, with a photo image that provides exact dimensions, including packaging to ensure each item meets ASTA’s professional standards. Detailed shipping instructions along with other information will be emailed to primary sponsor contacts to ensure packages arrive to the ASTA office in time to ship to all participants of ASTA Online 2021. ASTA will make a concerted effort to ensure the timely delivery of gift boxes to event participants, however, due to potential complications with international shipping and customs, ASTA cannot guarantee the timely delivery of gift boxes to international attendees.
