Sponsorship registration is now open for our 2020 Pikes Peak Writers Conference on Friday, April 17 through Sunday, April 19 at The DoubleTree by Hilton Colorado Springs Hotel. As a nonprofit, your sponsorship helps us pay award-winning faculty while offsetting one-time conference expenses.
We offer two types of basic sponsorship. General sponsorship is for businesses who want to connect with everyone at the conference. Faculty-Focused sponsorship is exclusively for the eyes of conference presenters, which includes (so far) 14 authors, 6 agents, and 4 editors—an optimal choice for those with novels, or writer products and services.
How To Become A Sponsor
Check out our list of 15 packages here, where you can upload your logo and pay with a credit card. Once we receive your information, we’ll reach out to see how we can be of further service.
Deadline to register is March 31, 2020.
Pikes Peak Writers Conference App
Top-Tier sponsors engage with potential customers while enjoying more exposure through our app, available for iOS and Android, which includes customized sponsor branding with your logo and website. Attendees use our app to find events, updates, and workshop locations. Our full directory of event participants features our sponsors, as well as authors, agents, editors, and attendees. The easy to navigate user interface is free to use, has a venue map, and announces sponsor giveaway winners.
We are celebrating our 28th year and expect up to 400 attendees, 80-percent of which are from Colorado. We’ll connect you through one of 15 sponsorship packages, which begins at $150, and includes branded engagement with more than 4,700 of our Facebook fans.
This is the conference’s first year at The DoubleTree by Hilton in Colorado Springs. The full-service, 229-room hotel recently completed a $9 million renovation, which includes a new bistro-style restaurant; the largest hotel bar in Colorado Springs, with local craft beer, wine, and cocktails; and a spacious lobby with fireplaces and complementary internet access.
Pikes Peak Writers Conference was founded in 1993 by author Jimmie Butler. The inaugural conference centered on “Useful Tips for Writing Commercial Fiction,” and enjoyed sponsorship by the Friends of the Pikes Peak Library District and The Kennedy Center Imagination Celebration. Today, the 3-day fiction writing conference is for writers of all levels, featuring workshops, acquiring editors/agents and well-known authors across a variety of genres.
