Your organisation will benefit significantly from exposure to our interested, relevant and influential audience.We welcome sponsorship from companies and organisations who wish to showcase their products and services and have the opportunity of networking with academics and practitioners in the field.

We have put together a number of different sponsorship packages, which we hope will enable a wide range of organisations (both private and public) to participate. In addition to general packages of sponsorship that provide widespread exposure over the whole conference, we also welcome sponsorship of specific activities in the conference programme.

An important part of attending a conference is to establish personal contacts and to develop networks with other participants and interested parties from around the world – so social events such as the welcome drink, conference dinner, lunches and breaks are well attended and included.
