Summary of Sponsorship Benefits

Details of Sponsorship Benefits

  • Where and as noted, sponsors receive a combination of complimentary conference registrations for their employee representatives and for their institutional investor buyside clients who would otherwise be approved for the $800 special registration fee and who have not already registered for the conference (“buyside customer”). Buyside customer passes may not be used by sponsor employee representatives in any circumstance.
  • In order to encourage qualified buyside attendees to the Conference, sponsor may earn up to two additional complimentary firm registration passes, provided that the sponsor registers additional qualified buyside customers, who would otherwise qualify for the zero or $800 rate. One additional firm pass will be granted for every two additional buyside customers that the firm registers (beyond those offered as part of the sponsorship agreement specified in the table above) up to a maximum of two additional passes. In order to receive this incentive, the buyside customers' names must be given to Cboe/registered more than two weeks before the conference (before 23 August), using the Sponsor's Customer Code, must not have already been registered for the conference, and must attend the conference.
