Sponsorship provides the opportunity to reach a large number of national and international delegates primarily within the horticulture research community. A wide range of delegates also attend including horticultural producers and enthusiasts, value chain participants, agribusinesses, lifestyles and amenity horticultural businesses, university staff and post-graduate students and community groups.

Benefits of sponsorship include:

  • Showcase your products or your science & innovations to delegates at the biggest single horticultural science event to be held within the next four years
  • Be associated with this prestigious event through your company being advertised alongside the Congress information, including (for relevant sponsors) your company logo and link being on the Congress website and program
  • IHC2014 offers sponsors and delegates a unique opportunity to interact with leading experts and gain insights into the latest national and international developments in emerging science and technology underpinning the creation of innovative horticulture.
  • A presence at the Congress provides the opportunity to access a wide potential client base both directly and indirectly to inform them about your products and services.
  • Your organisation will benefit significantly from exposure to a highly interested and influential audience in a learning environment.
  • Aligning your company with a strong educational experience demonstrating your commitment to personal skill and learning development at an international level
  • Those who sponsor a session or keynote speaker, could, at their own expense, organize for the speaker to spend time at their organization before or after the congress, to make the most of their investment.

Early confirmation of your sponsorship will ensure an even higher level of exposure. An extensive promotional campaign � including advertisements, direct mail campaigns, email broadcasts and web exposure � will be implemented. Take advantage of the opportunity for your company to be represented as a key sponsor of the Congress � well in advance of the actual dates.
