Sponsoring ALT-C

Arrangements for 2008

For 2008 we introduced a new sponsorship framework, described in detail in Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities and booking arrangements [~740 kB PDF], covering both sponsoring ALT-C and exhibiting at the conference, containing an anonymised breakdown of attendance at our 2007 conference by role and sector. Under the new framework the costs of major sponsorship were broadly the same as in previous years, but sponsors had much more flexibility and control over the detail of their sponsorship.

Here is a summary that was written prior to ALT-C 2008:

1. Major sponsorship

Major sponsors are the lifeblood of ALT-C and their contribution is crucial for the overall success of the conference.

Costs

  • For existing sponsoring members of ALT, as listed on the ALT home page: £2,500
  • For all others: £3,700

Benefits

Major anchor sponsors commit to sponsorship and are invoiced before the end of January 2008, and thereby secure earlier and longer exposure as sponsors. Other major sponsors commit to sponsorship by the end of May 2008. The overall benefit package is as follows:

  • Prominent identification - including your organisation's name and logo - as a major sponsor on all conference printed material, and on the conference web site, and listing as a major sponsor in all media releases relating to the event, and on all paid-for advertising for the conference.
  • Tickets for up to 4 people to attend the conference gala dinner.
  • An entitlement to run 1 sponsor's presentation - 1 x 45 minute breakout session, either seminar style or hands-on.
  • A substantial discount on the cost of being an exhibitor at the conference - subject to availability - provided exhibition space is booked at the same time as the commitment to sponsorship is made.
  • A substantial discount on the cost of any of the additional sponsorship opportunities summarised below and set out in detail in Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities and booking arrangements [~740 kB PDF].
  • A substantial discount on the cost of up to 2 delegates to attend the full conference.

Commitments received by Thursday, 31 January 2008 will entitle your organisation to exposure as a major anchor sponsor from February 2008. Otherwise the deadline for response is Friday, 30 May 2008, with exposure as a major sponsor guaranteed from the date in August on which conference materials are sent to delegates.

2. Contributing sponsorship

Some organisations cannot commit to the costs of major sponsorship, but nevertheless want to show their support for ALT-C. Any selection from the additional opportunities list shown below and set out in detail in Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities and booking arrangements [~740 kB PDF], that involves a financial commitment of more than £1,200 will entitle you to be defined on the conference web site and in the conference handbook as a contributing sponsor. These additional opportunities are booked on a first come first served basis, and in case of duplicate bookings we try to find mutually agreed alternatives.

Additional sponsorship opportunities

The list below is indicative. The definitive version appears in Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities and booking arrangements [~740 kB PDF].

  • Lunch for delegates on Tuesday 9 September, Wednesday 10 September, or Thursday 11 September 2008, with your organisation prominently identified as the sponsor.
  • Pre-conference reception on the evening of Monday, 8 September 2008, or the evening social on Tuesday, 9 September 2008, or the drinks reception prior to the conference dinner on Wednesday, 10 September 2008, with your organisation prominently identified as the sponsor.
  • Full A4 page and half A4 page advertisements in the Conference Handbook or in the Conference Research Proceedings.
  • Lanyards, notepads, pens, post-it notes etc - printed with your organisation's name and/or logo, plus the ALT logo.
  • Inclusion of a device (USB stick, mobile phone accoutrement, etc) in delegate packs.
