Sponsorship Opportunities

Become an Event Sponsor to promote your products or services.

  • Benefits of Sponsoring

Open Forum Events offer a number of partnership, sponsorship and exhibition opportunities that can meet your marketing and business development needs. Our programmes and conference agenda are carefully aligned with the training needs of our audiences. All of our packages are tailored to meet the requirements of your organisation, and we work with our clients on a bespoke basis to ensure you receive the best possible return on your investment.

Engage with Key Audiences

We target senior level delegates and key decision makers to ensure you are in front of a high-level and select audience. We offer only limited stand numbers to ensure our exhibitors gain direct access to delegates and speakers rather than be one of many exhibitors who struggle to make an impact and see a return.

Bringing People together

Our events bring together public and private sector personnel and provide an opportunity to learn from each other. All of our sponsorship packages include guest places. Invite your most important clients, or use our events as internal training and networking opportunities.

Make An Impact

Over 2000 senior public and third sector delegates attended our events last year. We reach millions more through our dedicated marketing campaigns. What better way to launch your service, demonstrate your products, build awareness and make important contacts in the public sector?

Raise Your Profile

Be at the forefront of the agenda and develop your prestige. A speaking slot enables you to convey key messages and raise your profile amongst industry and public sector leaders.

Bespoke Packages

Host a roundtable lunch, sponsor a drinks reception, deliver a presentation, write an article or partner an event. We adapt our sponsorship packages to ensure they meet your requirements.

Value

We deliver the highest quality conferences at a competitive cost ensuring our customers get the best value for money alongside a superb conference experience.

Thought Leadership

Got an event idea? We can work with you to deliver a commercially viable and professional event in a topic area of your choice. We want to make a difference and our delegates trust us to work with innovative and leading organisations who can help to improve public services.

Exhibition Networking

Exhibitors benefit from prime position in the high-traffic coffee, lunch and registration areas. We can organise an interview at your stand, hold one-to-one sessions with delegates, and introduce your organisation to the audience.

Marketing Campaigns

Benefit from an extensive, targeted marketing campaign to attract your ideal customers and business objectives. All events are advertised through brochure and email campaigns reaching thousands of public and third sector contacts.
