Follow up with wikiHow at regarding their party planning and how it fits in the schedule.

What is being done for the sponsors?

  • Someone else is presenting each sponsor at the opening circle.
  • Thank them again at the closing circle.
  • Invite them to bring leaflets, swag, etc. - have a table for that!

Banner with all their logos at the registration table would be nice, but not enough time . Maybe just do print logos on standard white paper and put on wall or door near registration table? Make sure sponsors know what they are getting.
