Sponsorship Conference

IEG's 26th Annual Sponsorship Conference Explores Why Sponsorship Is The Right Thing For A Down Economy - PR Web - This press release notes that Peter Diamandis is one of the keynote speakers:

Peter Diamandis, chairman/CEO, X PRIZE Foundation, creator of the $10 million Ansari X PRIZE awarded to the developers of SpaceShipOne and of four descendant competitions including the Google Lunar X PRIZE and Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE, will demonstrate the power of combining business-building sponsorship and strategic philanthropy for mind-blowing results.

In addition to the X PRIZE Foundation areas mentioned, I wonder if he'll talk about the sponsorship aspects of the Rocket Racing League?

Singularity: Ideas So Big They Change Everything -'s conference site - The conference is March 8-11 in Chicago.

The conference brochure has more about Diamandis's talk.
