Think!Sponsorship Conference Series
Why Attend Think!Sponsorship?
Think!Sponsorship is the trade meeting ground for sponsorship in the UK. The conference delivers insight, ideas, networking opportunities, innovation and education to sponsors, sponsorship sellers, advertising & media agencies and professional services companies supporting the sponsorship sector.
Over 7,000 individuals have attended Think!Sponsorship across 26 previous editions – this includes large properties through to niche seasonal events. We believe that our commitment to creating an environment where business gets done is one of the reasons that 96% of delegates that have given feedback say they would recommend the event to a colleague.
We can think of many good reasons why you should consider coming to the conference but we've tried to be succinct and encapsulate them across five points below!
1.0 Topical and Relevant Content: Our content programme combines key note presentations, case study examples, breakout sessions (that delegates pick based on their own needs), panel discussions, industry briefings and trends updates. We strive to stimulate our audience with the very-best examples of sponsorship in action and select projects and contributors from right across the sector (sport, art, music, charity, entertainment, b2b). Delegates are able to optimise their content experience to ensure it's really relevant and beneficial to their role.
2.0 Networking: We work REALLY hard to ensure that Think!Sponsorship is an inclusive environment in which business gets done. We use a variety of techniques to ensure that delegates meet new contacts and have the opportunity to catch up with existing networks. We have structured and informal networking sessions throughout the day and encourage delegates to use the event App to arrange meetings pre-event to use their time at the event really effectively.
3.0 Delegate Diversity: We believe Think! is the only conference in the UK that is truly representative of the full breadth of the sponsorship sector. Our delegates are made up of sponsorship-seekers (40%), marketing & sponsorship agencies (30-35%) and sponsoring businesses (25-30%) From large scale sports properties to smaller seasonal event owners there's something for everyone and our diversity helps to foster an accessible, interesting and friendly environment.
4.0 Affordability: Our partnership programme has helped us to hold ticket prices for the last three years without compromising on the delegate experience. We remain committed to creating and affordable environment that is accessible to a broad range of businesses. We support students by offering a discounted student ticket price to play our part in nurturing future talent.
5.0 Interaction & Technology: We support our panel discussions and content sessions by providing delegates with the opportunity to share their opinions and vote on questions in live sessions creating an interaction between speakers, moderator and audience. As a result we are able to provide findings to delegates post event that are truly reflective of the audience opinion.
Our next event will take place in April 2020. We expect around 200 delegates to attend and conference registration will open in Autumn 2019. To be included on conference updates please join the mailing list via our newsletter sign up tab.
