Exclusive event branding is available at certain price points. Please note that indicating an interest in an event does not guarantee you will be able to secure co-branding of that event. We will make every effort to accommodate your request. You will be contacted to confirm the availability of your event branding request and to discuss specific details regarding the event. NABJ does not recognize the right of first refusal by any partner, past or present.
