Facilitated Access to Attendees for Private Functions
The Gaylord Opryland has an abundance of award-winning dining options, from fine dining at signature restaurants to casual fare and Pubs – ideal for targeting specific attendees and holding small private parties, larger events or smaller Chefs Table type activities.  Great opportunities for capitalizing on your presence at the event. 

Once a 5-Star sponsor has registered Polycom will approve the hotel to accept a booking from that sponsor if they want to hold “over-and-above” evening activity events on:

  • Tuesday, January 12 after 8.00pm.  The EXPO Welcome Reception runs from 5pm – 8pm where a buffet, wine, beer and sodas will be served.  Following this with a branded networking activity is a prime opportunity for a sponsor to engage with even more of the attendees.
  • Thursday, January 14 after 6.15pm.  TEAM Polycom concludes at this time and many attendees will not depart until the following morning.  This is another opportunity to hold a branded networking activity for further attendee engagement.

The above are optional activities, Polycom will facilitate contact with the correct personnel at the hotel with whom the sponsor should deal directly. Payment arrangements should also be made directly with the hotel.

Polycom will support such activities as follows:

  • Promotion of the sponsor's event on the TEAM Polycom Registration Site in line with material submission deadlines
  • Opportunity to promote sponsor event in the TEAM Polycom Conference Guide as part of the sponsor’s Full Page Ad
  • Promotion of the sponsor event within on-site digital signage during TEAM Polycom
