Why Should I Become a Partner?
Vendor Partnerships are a critical part of our national and regional events. Your participation helps bring expertise, experience and product knowledge to our attendees allowing them to better support their local ministries. Plus, you as a vendor can build important relationships with our dedicated people who are influencers and decision makers when it comes to technology strategy and expenditures in their organizations. Additionally, your partnership helps underwrite the cost of our national event. You are part of keeping the overall cost to participants as low as possible in order to make the valuable event accessible to as many as possible. As an IT industry stakeholder yourself, you know that professional conferences and training opportunities can be very expensive. But by working closely with a host church and with ministry-minded vendor partners, we’ve been able to set the individual registration fee at only $75 for each national event! That compares to hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a similar event in the mainstream marketplace.
What does being a partner say about you?
You are committed to serving the Church IT community and you care about the networking and partnerships developed thru Church IT Network. You are in it for the long haul to support the Church and the use of technology to expand the Kingdom.
Does partnership include participant lists?
No, we do not sell, distribute or share our community and event participation lists with anyone.
What is my ongoing benefit?
We’re both grateful for vendor participation and zealous to guard against the event becoming too commercialized. With that in mind, we want to make it a great event for vendors by keeping the cost low and maximizing the opportunities for you to build relationships with Church IT leaders. Your company will be featured on the CITN website, a first stop white pages for IT vendors serving the Church.
