Discover Santa 2016 will be the World’s largest gathering of Santas ever held.  Current plans are to have something similar to the original convention, but even larger, not only in attendance, but in media coverage.  Especially with the evolution of Social Media.

Every Sponsor will have the opportunity to be a part of this special convention and the “Official Host,” “Major,” “Diamond” and “Gold” Sponsors will have the additional benefit of expanded branding by hosting special segments of the Convention.
