Sport for Business Partners 2019

September 27 @ 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.

All of the presentation places have been confirmed and we will be revealing who those are that will be sharing their ideas from the middle of August.

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 will be an opportunity for sporting bodies to pitch one great idea for a commercial partnership to those gathered in the room.  We have seen them coming through and there are some great ideas among them.

Here is the running order for the day:

0900   Arrival of Guests

It is a way in which we can highlight the many great projects that are being put together by sporting organisations to those who could make a real difference in terms of bringing them to life.

This is a great chance for our sporting and business Members to come together to look at what each side can bring to the other.
