Sponsors

Why should you sponsor?

  • A presence at the Congress is your organisation’s opportunity to leverage two days of unparallel access to a wide potential client base, to inform them about your products and services and build long-term relationships.
  • Exhibiting is a proven tactic for marketing your brand: it combines the reach of magazine advertising with the power of direct mail and persuasion of face-to-face meetings.
  • Congress participants are keen to improve their knowledge. Aligning your organization with this powerful educational experience demonstrates your commitment to assisting their development at a deeply personal level.
  • Your organization will benefit significantly from exposure to an interested, relevant and influential audience in an informal yet informative environment away from the competition of everyday distractions.
  • The Congress will assist you in achieving strategic goals by providing you with direct exposure to your target market.
  • Be informed and identify the marketing strategies being implemented by your competition.

Key benefits to early commitment

Aligning your company early will ensure:

  • Maximum exposure for your company and increased opportunities to access not only the registered delegates but anyone receiving Congress printed or electronic marketing information.
  • First choice of sponsorship opportunity to ensure alignment with your marketing aims.
