Become a Sponsor or Exhibitor

Far from the typical ‘meet-and-greet’ exhibition experience, you – as a sponsor or exhibitor – will be positioned as a partner of the event with a focus on the benefits of your product and brand, rather than just a name on an exhibition list.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with the conference will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts.

CONTACT US: Ask us about the different ways you can get involved.

Contact our sponsorship team to find out more about each package by emailing [email protected] or by calling: +44 (0)20 3696 2920.
