Headline, Gold, Silver, Event & Networking Packages will each host a table in the Sponsors Lounge on 28 November.

The Sponsors’ Lounge is a private room, away from the hustle of the networking hall. The lounge will be open throughout the day, so make good use of it. Lunch & refreshments will be served in the Sponsors’ Lounge.

Delegates are free to enter the Sponsors’ Lounge, so be proactive and invite them to your table. We will give you some printed invitations to distribute in the morning.

We would recommend you allocate a member of your team to the Sponsors Lounge during the busy lunch period (1-3pm), to network with the delegates.

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

The programme is to invite specific roles from specific companies that you would like to target. We have set aside a number of delegate passes we invest from your sponsorship to attract the companies and job titles you would like to target. Of-course there are no guarantees people will accept, but at the event we will be able to share at least the names, companies and titles with as much contact info we can glean for you.

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.


If we’ve missed something or we’re unclear, please give us a call on +44 (0)1732 525950 and we’ll be happy to help.
