Our special events bring together CIOs and other senior-level IT executives in addition to industry vendors and i.c.stars talent and staff. Your organization can benefit in various ways when sponsoring our events. 

12 months of exposure

When your company partners with i.c.stars and purchases an Event Sponsorship package, you will have access and visibility at our annual events for one full year. We host four major events every quarter. The i.c.stars network includes more than 90 CIOs from large Chicago corporations who are usually in attendance.

Values-Based Relationships

More than business contacts, i.c.stars packages provide opportunities to make stronger connections through developing relationships in a community service context. Representatives from your company and other IT executives give back to the IT profession by mentoring our interns. Providing professional guidance to young motivated talent builds stronger relationships over a traditional networking experience. It’s also an ideal way to meet talented youth who are available for permanent and temporary employment opportunities.

Tax Deductible

i.c.stars is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Our events are positioned as community service activities rather than an opportunity to pitch company services, providing a more comfortable atmosphere to build quality relationships.

Flexible Pricing/Ala Carte Single Events

Choose among four types of sponsorships that fit your budget and business goals or simply choose to sponsor a single event. Our a la carte prices provide various opportunities to purchase individual sponsor items offered in our packages.

C-Level Account Exposure

Our events offer an interactive approach. We position a speaker at each table who is or was previously an entrepreneur, CIO, or senior IT executive. As a result, we have been able to ensure that i.c.stars events are well attended by Chicago-area CIOs. Read our recent CIO speaker list here12:26:35
