Sponsorship

Become a DRIE Toronto corporate sponsor and gain access to over 300 DRIE members and benefit from:  

  • displaying your products and services and giving product presentations at our quarterly sessions;
  • having your logo displayed on DRIE Toronto’s sponsor Web page with a link to your company site;
  • free advertising opportunities in the DRIE Digest – a quarterly publication with a wealth of information on the latest disasters, seminars, conferences and continuity planning; and
  • free membership and guest passes.

As a DRIE Toronto Sponsor, you can choose the level of sponsorship that is right for your corporation: national, gold, silver or bronze. Benefits accompany each level of sponsorship. Refer to the Sponsorship Levels table below to find a full listing of the fees and benefits associated with each level.

When you become a DRIE Toronto Sponsor, you will be assigned a Relationship Manager. Your Relationship Manager is your liaison to DRIE Toronto and will assist you by:  

  • actively working with you to submit your logo, advertisement, articles and sponsorship fees to the appropriate DRIE Toronto committees;
  • ensuring that your sponsorship is an enjoyable experience; and
  • helping you take full advantage of everything we have to offer you as a Sponsor.

As a DRIE Toronto Sponsor, you are required to:  

  • submit your sponsorship fees by the due date;
  • participate fully in the sponsorship program;
  • discuss your requirements with your Relationship Manager; and
  • be a part of our motto: Share / Learn / Network in DRIE Toronto – Grow with Us.

For more information on how you can become a sponsor, take a look at our Sponsorship Benefits Information Package. You can also fill out our Sponsorship Application Form (PDF) or contact the DRIE Toronto Sponsorship Director.
