Why sponsor?

What are the sponsorship options?

Symposia

For our Spring and Autumn Conferences there are five packages with symposia slots. Successful sponsors will be able to present an educational programme relevant to the themes of the meeting, subject to review and discussion from the BGS Meetings Committee. Partnership packages can be tailored to your company’s own needs. All delegates attending will be encouraged to attend the symposia and visit the exhibition stands. 

Please see the downloadable pdf for more details

Exhibition Stands

Most of our meetings accept stand sponsorship. The exhibition and poster presentations are a key part of our meetings. Stands are organised in layouts designed to maximise footfall to stands. Catering points, posters, and seating will be included across the exhibition space to better draw attendees to interact with you. Stand prices are standardised across meetings and you can find more details including costs in the downloadable pdf.
