Next Event - Women in Sponsorship

We hosted the inaugural Women in Sponsorship networking event in November 2016 in conjunction with The UK Sponsorship Awards which brought together women working in the UK sponsorship industry to network and share best practice ideas. Around 100 attendees came to the event representing a broad mix of the sponsorship industry.

The first event demonstrated that there was clearly a role for a group of this type and we have been busy planning events for 2017.

We are happy to announce that the next Women in Sponsorship networking event will take place in the St. Paul's Roof Pavilion at the Southbank Centre on the 6th of July 2017. It will be an early evening event and an opportunity to connect with other professionals in the sector. The event programme is as follows:

17:45  - Welcome tea, coffee and cake

18:15  - Panel Q & A Discussion- in this session of the evening we will hear from industry leading practitioners who will debate the topic 'Sponsorship & Diversity - Who Cares?'

Confirmed speakers:

19:00  - Short break and refreshments 

19:15  - Structured networking session - during this part of the evening delegates will take part in a facilitated networking event that ensures business cards get exchanged!

19:45  - Informal networking over drinks and light refreshments
