By sponsoring activities or hosting a table in the exhibit hall, you can enhance your experience with: 

  • Access: Take advantage of networking opportunities with over 800 opera professionals and decision-makers.
  • Promotion: Receive customized recognition packages to showcase your brand and connect with attendees.

To learn about becoming a sponsor or exhibitor, review the Sponsorship Prospectus and contact Jenny Fornoff at JFornoff@operaamerica.org or 646.699.5258.


OPERA America offers four types of sponsorship opportunities that provide progressively more visibility to your company. All packages are designed to give you the most face time with conference attendees and to maximize your exposure through combinations of digital, print, and verbal recognition — before, during, and after the events.

    Includes the opportunity to network with a global roster of opera administrators, thought leaders, and artists, and exhibition space in the World Opera Forum Sponsor Pavilion.
  • Opera Conference Tier I — $5,000
    Includes the opportunity to present content in dedicated spotlight sessions, underwrite a general session, or put your name on the welcome center; and offers the highest level of visibility for your business.
  • Opera Conference Tier II — $3,500
    Includes the alignment of your company with a specific network or affinity group, conference hospitality, or the exhibit hall; and offers repeated visibility and promotion throughout conference activities.
  • Opera Conference Tier III — $2,000
