Five reasons why your company
should sponsor and be at this conference

In case you still need more convincing, here are 5 reasons why sponsorship makes good marketing sense for you company:

High visibility: Your company name, logo and products on all official conference materials. After four days of conferencing, everyone will know your company name.

High involvement: Fantastic opportunities to get even more involved and further promote your brand through sponsoring social events and speakers or through speaking opportunities in conference sessions.

Hands-on product experience: Use the trade display to provide clients with hands-on experience with your products and achieve direct sales and sales leads.

Powerful product launches: With  delegates and key decision-makers present, this is the largest, most captive audience you will find at one time in one place to launch new products and services into the market.

Network, network, network: The networking opportunities are endless. This is your chance to speak directly with the people who make purchasing decisions, to forge new commercial opportunities, develop new contacts and strengthen relationships with existing clients.
