Sport for Business Partners 2019

September 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Sport for Business is hosting Partners 2019 a special event bringing together sporting bodies and commercial brands for a morning of learning about sponsorship and exploring potential collaborations.

This event will take place on Friday morning, September 27th in the Conference Centre at the National Sports Campus.

It will be a morning of learning about current best practice in the world of sports sponsorship, sharing some of the work from those that are making a difference across a variety of different initiatives and discovering from the experts the best way to go about delivering sponsorship benefits.

For Sponsors: An opportunity to see the wealth of different opportunities that are available in sport at every level and may well fit into a plan you have for 2020.

For Agencies: Be in the room with your clients and those who may become so. Be inspired to deliver the kind of creative solutions they are looking for.

For Sporting Bodies: Learn from the experts how sponsorship works for them and increase your knowledge of how it can do so for you.

A central part of the morning is an opportunity for sporting bodies to pitch one great idea for a commercial partnership to those gathered in the room.
