Sponsors, like super-heroes, come in all sizes and shapes! Though they may not wear a cape or tights, our sponsors know what's most needed and get there in the nick of time. They make sure that our events are supported and our community is strengthened.
Now, we have a variety of levels of sponsorships that enable anyone to show that the APMM's mission is important and that they support our community. We name our sponsors on our website and on-site at the Conference, not because they want the recognition, but because we want to display their support of the APMM's not-for-profit, member-focused values.

other ways to contribute to our 2023 event

  • Send a prize for our drawing during the Industry Expo on Saturday afternoon - any sort of item that a model maker might like to have is fair game. We're talking tools, gadgets, electronics - you know the things makers like. Bonus points if it is shipped direct or easy to carry on the flight home!
  • Donate materials, tools, or products that your company makes. If you would find it useful, there's a good chance another model maker would, too!
  • Present a workshop - there's sure to be a topic you know about that you're comfortable talking about. You don't have to be a world-class expert to share your knowledge; you don't have to be a teacher, either, to lead a session on something you're good at. Take a chance - we'll give you a crisp $100 bill if you do!
  • Participate fully and invite a friend to join you! There will be something for every kind of model maker.

When you become a sponsor, you let your colleagues and customers know how much you value your association with the APMM! Choose from the options above or contact the APMM office for customized options.
