Realm Makers is the fastest growing writers conference dedicated specifically to the careers of Christian authors. Since our first conference in 2013 our attendance doubled in 2015 and by 2017 we doubled again with nearly 300 people at the awards banquet. As of the end of the early bird period on March 15th we already have nearly 20% more registrations than at this same time in 2017. We anticipate around 300 total authors registered to attend the conference with closer to 350 at the awards dinner. And as we have consistently seen over the last several years, close to half of those currently registered (46.7% to be precise) have never attended Realm Makers before. Maintaining an annual sponsorship absolutely reaches new people every year.
Even though our attendance has grown our pricing for sponsorships has not, which means your dollars reach more authors than ever! Won’t you join us in 2018?
Organizations and individuals who sponsor the Realm Makers conference make it possible for us to bring our attendees the best quality conference experience. At the highest levels you can attach your name to our Flash Critique Session Thursday night, the Saturday night multi-author book signing, or late night social events. There are sponsorship levels to match any budget and we’re open to customizing sponsorship packages to match your individual needs.
If you have any questions not addressed on the sponsor/advertiser form please feel free to inquire by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can discuss your needs directly.
Here is a list of our 2017 Sponsors.
