    SMPS Palmetto would not flourish without the support of our generous corporate partners. Being a sponsor of our chapter means you will directly help us continue to provide programs, professional development and connections to the A/E/C community.

    SMPS is a not-for-profit, national organization formed in 1973, by marketing and business development professionals from the architectural, engineering, planning, interior design, environmental, construction  industries and also includes specialty consulting firms. SMPS National currently has over 6,900 members throughout the US and Canada, with the Palmetto chapter being one of the newest chapters and the fastest growing chapter nationwide.

     The Society and its chapters benefit from the support of 3,700 design and building firms, encompassing 80% of Engineering News–Record's Top 500 Design Firms and Top 400 Contractors. The organization currently has more than 6,000 members throughout the United States and Canada.

    SMPS Palmetto offers several local and national benefits and services to our members such as educational resources, networking, seminars, conferences, workshops, publications, trends and best practices in marketing and business development for the design and construction industries.


    As an SMPS Palmetto Annual Sponsor, your company will receive exposure throughout the state of South Carolina from Charleston to Columbia and the Upstate. With three different levels of participation beginning at just $500, becoming an SMPS Palmetto Chapter partner is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve brand recognition and awareness among Chapter members and the broader A/E/C community. Sponsorships are open to both members and non-members, and there is no limitation placed on competing firms for Annual Sponsorships. Annual sponsorships run from January 1st to December 31st.


    South Carolina's real estate and construction market is booming, which means getting your firms brand in front of the right people has grown substantially more complex. SMPS Palmetto offers your firm a valuable opportunity to reach premier architectural, engineering, construction and real estate development companies in Charleston, Columbia and the Upstate through our Program Sponsorship package. Through our monthly luncheon programs and workshops, SMPS Palmetto puts your company directly in front of key decision makers - principals, CMOs, business developers and marketers - all of whom purchase products and retain services for the needs of their firms. Worried about competitors diluting your brand and message through a competing sponsorship? With an SMPS Palmetto Program Sponsorship, you don't have to worry! Program sponsorships are limited to  non-competing firms. As an added benefit, program sponsors receive exclusive networking access with program speakers/panelists prior to the program for networking. By sponsoring one of SMPS Palmetto's programs, you are establishing your company as a supporter and collaborator of the organizationprofitable business relationships for A/E/C companies.
