As we REIMAGINE, REINVENT and REVOLUTIONIZE in A NEW DIRECTION at the 2021 Quad States Convention on June 14-15 at The Monument (former Rushmore Plaza Civic Center) in Rapid City, S.D., the South Dakota Bankers Association invites you to explore the following ways that business partners can participate and connect with attendees.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to forgo the exhibit hall for 2021. Instead, the SDBA invites you to consider sponsoring, which offers a multitude of benefits to your organization. If a sponsorship doesn’t fit with your organization’s plans, we invite you to register to attend as a participant and connect with bankers through a variety of socially-distanced networking opportunities such as meal functions, breaks, golf and outings, or to explore advertising opportunities.

The 2021 Quad States Convention is currently being planned in a hybrid manner. We plan to host a live event in Rapid City but will also live stream speakers for those who are unable to or uncomfortable attending in person. Safety protocols will be in place throughout the convention. In the event that the convention would need to pivot to a virtual-only platform, your sponsorship will be converted accordingly.
