Welcome to AORS CONNEXIONS An opportunity for suppliers to reconnect with their customers, meet new clients, and showcase their products and services.
As they say, all good things must come to an end, and CONNEXIONS will be drawing to a close soon. But there’s still time to become a sponsor and schedule a Live Broadcast for the coming weeks. Your virtual exhibit will be accessible and will continue to be promoted for at least one month thereafter.
So it’s not too late to become a sponsor and connect with your customers. Contact us by filling out the form available at the bottom and we will be in touch!
Over the past 60 years, AORS, the Association of Ontario Road Supervisors, has developed a reputation for bringing its 2,000+ members together to share relevant information, build relationships, raise the profile and professionalism of our industry, and ensure our members are properly trained.
AORS CONNEXIONS is an easy-to-use interactive platform that will bring our members together, both municipal staff and the suppliers of the equipment, products and services they need. It will include virtual exhibit spaces that members can visit at their leisure with the option to connect at mutually convenient times. Platinum sponsors have the added benefit of scheduled live broadcasts during which they can provide demos, presentations, Q&A sessions, or just a meet & greet with their customers. change this part.
AORS CONNEXIONS launched in October and will run for several months. During that time different sponsors will be featured weekly, and Platinum sponsors will schedule their live broadcasts.
Why, and Why now?
As we emerge from the pandemic, members are looking to reconnect. While we will be meeting in person soon, there is a lot of catching up to do with over 2,000 members scattered across our large province. In the meantime, let’s take advantage of our increased use of technology (love it or hate it) to close the gap. Not to mention, there are a lot of new faces, and new products have been launched.
AORS CONNEXIONS is also a great way for our supplier members to show support for AORS and our Local Associations, so we can continue to support their municipal customers with quality training, certification, and other services.
How will it work?
Each of our sponsors will have a dedicated virtual exhibit space where they can introduce their team members, showcase products and services, and provide customers with an opportunity to connect with them at a mutually convenient time. Sponsors need only provide AORS with contact info, images, links to videos, and any other information they’d like to share. AORS staff will assemble the exhibit for them, to their specifications. The exhibit space will also provide a portal for Platinum sponsors to deliver a live broadcast where they can interact live with potential customers.
How will it be promoted?
AORS is very successful at engaging our 2,000+ members and their staff through multiple channels:
- Weekly e-newsletters (2,200+ subscribers)
- Social media posts (more than 1,200 followers over LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram)
- Fall edition of the ADVANCE newsletter (over 1,300 direct mail recipients)
- Our network of 32 Local Associations across the province
- Hundreds of public works staff, who will attend dozens of AORS training sessions during the autumn months.
- Through reciprocal agreements with other municipal associations and industry publications
How will my company benefit?
Depending on sponsorship level, each sponsor will be featured once or more on the AORS and AORS CONNEXIONS websites, in the weekly e-newsletter, and in social media posts. Each feature will include a direct link to the sponsor’s virtual exhibit space, and in the case of Platinum sponsors, a link to their live broadcast. Features can also be timed to coincide with a particular promotion or new product announcement that the sponsor is planning. Because the number of sponsors is limited, each sponsor will get prime exposure.
