Sponsorship Opportunities – SWM Annual Conference 2013

On Tuesday 26 November 2013, we are holding our exclusive Annual Conference –  The World We Made: A Green West Midlands by 2050 at the prestigious new conference venue at Aston University in central Birmingham. 

Bringing together expert speakers on sustainability issues, this event offers a truly unique opportunity to promote your business to key decision makers and large scale buyers in the West Midlands.  The event will run from 9.30am – 1pm followed by a networking lunch and exhibition.

Attendees on the day will include leaders from public, private and voluntary sectors as well as our members and Green Leaders. Last year, the event was highly acclaimed with 150 key delegates selected to attend including Chief Executives from local authorities as well as councillors, voluntary sector organisations and community groups. Many leaders from the business sector were also in attendance, representing internationally renowned organisations as well as local SME’s looking to connect with other key decision makers, buyers and contacts.

This is a one off opportunity to promote your business or service at the key sustainability event in the West Midlands.  At last year’s conference, 99% of delegates rated content and organisation as good to excellent.

The quotes from last year’s sponsors gave overwhelmingly positive feedback, with 100% rating the event as good to excellent, stating that exhibiting helped promote their brands, products and services: providing them with valuable business leads and contacts. Each sponsor was interested in sponsoring future SWM events, and believed support in the run up to the event was exceptional.
