Sponsorship is a great way to gain recognition for your company, personnel, products and services. By sponsoring an event, your company gains immediate name recognition and credibility with decision makers. You are able to target a very specific group of HAA members, you can sponsor specific events.
We sell event and meeting sponsorships through a live auction twice a year; Typically once in January and once in June. This way you are able to determine the value of an event for yourself. More than 160 events and meetings are available for sponsorship throughout the year. Some items will be sold by "drawing" meaning that the event will have a preset amount and all companies interested can enter their name into the drawing to win the item. Whoever we draw from all the entries will win that event for that specific amount.
If you wish to sell to the executive level, you may want to sponsor a golf tournament or general meeting. If your buyers are property supervisors, then an ACES program is the best event for you. During most sponsored events, a commercial is read to attendees and sponsor signs are displayed. All events are promoted with pre-event publicity in ABODE magazine, our weekly e-mail blast, on our plasma screen in the registration area of the Dinerstein Reed Prokop Education Center, and on our website.
Our next purchasing opportunity is set for Wednesday, January 31st, 2024 from 3:00 - 5:00 pm

Some events or meetings are sold by random draw. You can purchase events that we will sell at a preset amount. We try to keep some events at a more affordable cost and to keep it fair to the entire supplier membership. There's something for every budget! If interested in participating in the drawings, you will fill out a Drawing Purchase Label and place it on an entry card and place it in the box indicated for the lot you are interested in purchasing. We'll then draw the from the entries for each event to decide the winner. We'll announce all drawing winners just before the live auction begins.
