Each year, the number of industry events in urban centres around the world continues to grow, with tradeshows and conferences big and small representing the A to Z of associations and various sized corporations. In addition to vying for attendee registrations, event hosts also face incredible competition in securing sponsors. 

Sponsors are important supporting partners at events. Companies typically invest in sponsorships to access increased brand exposure, attendee data, speaking opportunities and discounted event tickets. Event organisers seek out sponsors to off-set costs via sponsorship fees ranging from modest to six and seven figures, and to add credibility by association. The positive impact of attracting the right sponsors to an event can be profound.
