Speaking Opportunities

Companies interested in helping to develop content for the programme are invited to get in touch. We are interested in developing partnerships with companies who have a relevant and innovative message and would like to reach our audience of event buyers, planners and event professionals. We will not accept sponsored pitches into the programme.

Looking to connect with our exhibitors?

As event organisers we know that some businesses are more interested in speaking to exhibitors than attendees. If that’s you please get in touch to talk about how we can help maximise your exposure to our exhibitors without affecting their exhibition experience.

From sponsoring the exhibitor breakfasts to exhibitor-only mailings we have a number of ideas of how to position your businesses effectively.
