2018 DEAPA Regional Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

The Delaware Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA Delaware) is hosting a regional planning conference October 23 and 24, 2018.  It will be held at the Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center- 1 Baltimore Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and we need your help. APA Delaware is a professional organization that promotes the exchange of ideas between professionals in community planning and related fields throughout the region.

Conference Specifics

We are partnering this year with the Delaware Academy of Medicine/Delaware Public Health Association (DPHA).  The conference theme will be "Planning 360: Economy, Environment and Health" and will feature speakers, mobile workshops and sessions appropriate to that theme.


While we have had more than 300 attendees at past conferences, this promises to be our largest event ever for several reasons. We have two high-caliber keynote speakers, Ms. Georgia Sheridan, AICP, and Dr. Tim Chapin, PhD.  In addition to our APA Delaware and DPHA chapter members, we are inviting members from the Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, and National Capital APA chapters. With the 2018 National Planning Conference being held in New Orleans this year, many planners will likely be anxious to attend a good planning conference closer to home.  Our lineup of sessions is absolutely terrific and last, but not least, our conference hotel is on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach!

Participation Levels

In order to host a conference of this magnitude, we rely on a variety of sponsorships and contributions. These sponsorships not only benefit our organizations but also the sponsors who are exposed to planning professionals (including land use planners, landscape architects, engineers, architects, GIS professionals, etc.) as well as doctors and other health professionals, county and municipal officials and interested citizens that attend these conferences.


We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity and participate as a sponsor, advertiser, or exhibitor. To help you do that, we have created a myriad of ways to give you a great return on your investment.  Please note that we will have a limited number of exhibit space available; therefore, the spaces will be filled on a first come-first served basis.  Just want to advertise? Not a problem. You can do that. However, because complimentary registration(s) and reduced booth fees come with higher levels of participation, we urge you to study the options below before you decide.
