On 28 November (Day Two) the Headline, Gold, Silver & Event Partners will have access to a semi-private meeting area (The Clubhouse). This exclusive, quieter and more private area is away from the buzz of the exhibit & networking area (Hall 3, where the booths are located) and the Sponsors Lounge (Hall 4). Here partners can sign guests in/out throughout the day (8am-4pm) and use the meeting facilities.

Please note the meeting facilities (The Clubhouse), Exhibit & Networking Area (Hall 3) & Sponsors Lounge (Hall 4) are all adjacent and a short walk from each other.

You have all been asked to complete a SHORT QUESTIONNAIRE, this will help us best market your offering but also help us better understand who your ideal prospects are? If you haven’t already submitted this, please do so ASAP. Thank you.

The programme invites specific roles from specific companies that you have identified as targets. We have set aside a number of delegate passes, re-invested from your sponsorship, to attract the companies and job titles you would like to target. Of-course there are no guarantees people will accept the NSC invitation, but if not we will be able to share our research with you, including the names, companies and job titles so you can try a different approach post-NSC. If they do accept the NSC invitation, we will facilitate an introduction onsite.

Outside of this initiative, as we taper to the event, we will also be looking at paid booked delegates that match your criteria.

Any questions, please contact Nick Squire on or 01732 525950.

The National Sales Conference will be returning to the Ricoh Arena on 24-25 November 2020. We will have a NSC20 hall plan prepared, so all sponsors & partners will have the opportunity to rebook and secure the best available package onsite at NSC19.

Any questions, please contact Warren White or Steve Lindsey on 01732 525950 to arrange a meeting and discuss your options.
