Symposium sponsorship opportunities plus Early Starters discount ends in under two weeks

Things are getting busy at the Event Award HQ! With the Early Starters discount ending soon, it's lucky it's so easy to get started on your entry. Plus, the Symposium program is coming together - we've released a range of sponsorship opportunities for organisations to increase their brand awareness directly to their target market – now is the time to check it out.

Event Symposium sponsorship opportunities

If you want to be seen as a supporter of the industry or get your foot in the door with your target market, the Australian Event Symposium provides the opportunity for you to directly network and meet industry professionals and grow your contacts.

From sponsoring one of the high profile keynote speakers to sponsoring a stream of focus sessions, the Thursday evening networking function or delegate breaks or satchels, there are plenty of ways to get your brand or products noticed by event industry professionals at the Symposium.

None of the above quite hitting the mark? Get in touch with us and we can tailor a package to best showcase your brand.

Why Sponsor? It’s a unique opportunity to get maximum exposure to the event industry professionals, network with your target market, receive acknowledgement for supporting your industry, develop new partnerships with key decision makers and, using the registrations included in your partnership, you get the opportunity to stay abreast of current issues impacting the industry and increase your own professional development.

Early Starters discount ends in less than two weeks

The Early Starters discount ends on 20 June so it's a good thing that taking advantage of the discounted entry fee is incredibly easy and takes only a couple of minutes. All you have to do is start and pay for your entry using the following simple steps.

1. Choose a category - if you need help choosing which one is right for you, have a look at the Choosing a Category page on the website and check the Eligibility and Judging Criteria on the Categories page. You can also download all the entry form questions once you're in the Entry Portal.

2. Log into the Entry Portal

3. Start your entry by entering a few details into the Entry Form - it can be as little as filling in the name of the event or achievement.

4. Pay for your entry either by credit card or EFT.

Once you've secured the Early Starters rate, you'll still have until entries close on 25 July to work on your submission.

Big names and key skills on the Symposium program

The Symposium program is shaping up to be a big one! The creative directors of some of Australia's most significant events, including White Night Melboure, the Australian Open, Ten Days on the Island and Woodford Folk Festival, will speak on Day 1 while focus sessions on Day 2 will explore everything from event security and event volunteers to social media and sponsorship - and we're not even finished squeezing everything onto the program yet!

Registrations will open very soon - we'll let you know when, of course - but in the meantime have a look at the program and let your boss know you'll be off to the Sunshine Coast in September!
