Business Partnership Opportunities

Why should you Sponsor?

A wide range of sponsorship opportunities are available ranging from Website Advertisements, Speaker Sponsorship, Trade Displays, Social Function Hosting and more.

We can design a sponsorship package to meet your budget and objectives.

As a conference sponsor, your organisation will benefit significantly from constant exposure to an interested, relevant and influential audience in a relaxed environment, away from the competition of everyday distractions.

As an added sponsorship benefit daily catering will be served in the exhibition area, thus maximising exhibitor exposure to delegates.

All Sponsors and Exhibitors are acknowledged and linked from the Conference website for one year.
